They were selling them at Target in Glenview this morning. They also had them at Walgreen's, with the Cubune's 128 page commemorative book.

I used to have a spike but then just went with the messy look (oh yeah, after a brief comb over :redface: ) I've been in Peoria the last few days and while getting ready my 2 year old handed me some mouse and said, "What's that) Blumb popped in my head right away. I put a dab in my hand and went to work. I don't have as much hair as he has, but I was Blum for a day!!!

I was thinking the same thing. Brian Anderson seemed to have as good a time as anyone on the active roster. I'm looking forward to seeing him as an everyday player. The 2 HRs off Felix Rodriguez in Seattle were big.

I bought mine today at Walmart. Also, the Cubune put out a really nice, thick magazine on our season. I bought one of each comemerative collectors issue I could find, and they had one for just about every sports magazine. They were like $7 each (the Trib one was $12), but it is worth it. I haven't purchased championship stuff since 1998.

Brian and Aaron reminded me of when I was 12. Excited and on the edge of their seats when something good or emotional happened.

I gotta say it was great to see Damaso jumping up and down in the bullpen when Konerko hit that slam. That's the way it should be.

The main part is a limb of a compound bow, the background is my 73 Camaro, along with Sox logo's of years gone by. Winningugly made it for me.

That SI cover is a thing of absolute beauty and gave me goosebumps. I chased all over Des Plaines tonight for my copy, but was unsuccessful. I'll try again tomorrow... hopefully having better luck than I did tonight!

I found it at Dominick's at Western and Roscoe. It was on a support the Sox display that was the first thing you see when you walk in the store. It's a very nice issue, great pics and many articles. Good keepsake.

Yes, with the exception of an article on Ozzie and a photo gallery. This according to the ad in the Comm. SI for the hardcover edition.

It really is a great photo. For those people who are ordering the Sports Illustrated Championship package, they give you an opportunity to purchase a high-quality reproduction of the cover at 11" x 14" size, ready for framing.

Any chance someone could pick up an extra copy of the SI and the Cubune Sox Mags? I don't live in the Midwest and would really like a copy. I will pay for the shipping and handling as well. Please PM me if you could do me this HUGE favor!

Anyone in Champaign have any luck? I looked at Borders and Wall Mart but had no luck. Hopefully tomorrow will be a different story. I haven't been able to locate a program around here either. I may just have to order that on line.

Are the Trib and Sun-Times Sox books out yet? Sorry if this has been answered already, but I couldn't tell if people were talking about the SI special edition (which I just purchased) or the Trib's book.

ChiSoxGirl, I got my commemorative SI copy at the Jewel Osco on Lee/Mannheim Rd in Des Plaines. They had a World Series display near the photo dept. They also had the "Believe It!" soft cover book the Trib put out.

That's where I got mine yesterday morning. I picked up not only the commemorative edition of SI, but also the Cubune's 128 page book (which looks just awesome!) and a couple other commemorative magazines published by companies I'd never heard of before.

I got my copy of the Trib's publication today at the Barnes & Noble in the Loop. Interesting Foreword by Jerome Holtzman:

"Chicago is a two-team city.....The attendance figures are not an accurate index of the faithful and the passion. I hope the White Sox no longer will be described as the second team."

Yeah, I just watched game 2 again yesterday and that was the first time I saw Damaso, he was so happy, that was great to see.

Let me know if you find anything in Champaign/Urbana. Don't have a car on campus, so if I have to borrow a friends or take the bus somewhere, I want to make sure I can get it. Have you had luck finding any merchandise anywhere here? The only place I could find was Gameday sports, and all they had were ALCS tees.

I just ordered 3 SI commemorative edition covers reprinted on high quality stock
suitable for framing. They want too much to frame so I'll do it myself. If you buy 3 or more you pay no shipping. Thought about getting the Pods cover and the one with Dick Allen smoking, maybe next time
