Who are they? Seriously, why any other day than April 3, 2006 while handing out the rings in the faces of the Indians? The above-mentioned team won't be at Comiskey until May 19th and do we really need to validate them more than necessary?

Opening Day. It's the first day of the season, we play Cleveland, the team who tried to make a run at the division late in the season and then we knocked them out of the playoffs by sweeping them. They owned us through the better half of the 1990's and won the pennant twice but couldn't beat Atlanta or Flordia for it all.

My weekend split-season plan includes the second game of the season but not Opening Day. I vote for April 5!:redneck

Let's raise it before every home game!

"Oh, yeah...this darned flagpole just can't seem to hold it up. Well, we'll just raise it up again right about now and...oh...what's this...a brass band! And a jet flyover! And Minnie Minoso! Of all the days you could have come to the park! How fortunate!"

Opening Day. After 88 years of waiting, there can be no prolonging this ceremony.

You definitely do it on opening day, that way we can see it fly for every game! I can't wait for ring day, I don't care what I have to skip to get tickets or how much they cost (hopefully not tons and tons though).

[QUOTE=The_Floridian]Let's raise it before every home game!

I'm with you all the way on this one Fla!!!!

Have a glitzy flag raising before EVERY game, keying up the crowd before every opponent. Rubbing it in, OR..... hyping every fanny in the place to send the Sox onto the field with a BANG. A, not so casual, reminder of what last year meant and what another banner will mean....to both fan and player!

ESPN2 may move that game to April 2, 2006, so it can be a Sunday Night game to start the season.

And Frank Thomas, Harold Baines and Ozzie should get the honor of hoisting the flag, a la Mike Squires during the 1983 Division Championship Banner raising.

Those 3 are longest serving members on the active roster, as either a player or player and coach.

Oops, sorry, I never finished the poll entry. :redface: Glad to see there was some interest anyway. Dang . . .

The choices were going to be:

1. Opening day vs. Cleveland
2. In June vs. Houston
3. In May vs. Cubs

My choice is #3, though I think opening day is traditional. Sorry about messing up the poll!

Opening Day with a long rope so everyone hoists it up. I remember hearing someone say the Sox play as a team and "they're all pulling on the same rope." Why not one more time before we move on to defending the crown? The Cubs? That's playing right into the cubune's premise that the cubs are on everyone's mind - even the World Champions. They are LOSERS and we are WINNERS. :bandance:
