I was just told that the trophy is on display until November 25.

I just found the press release...

I got an email from Brooks this morning and he said that they were working on a Trophy Tour. He didn't mention anything about City Hall.

I'm gonna head over after work tomorrow (4ish) if anyone wants to meet up. PM me.

Not much time to see it at City Hall for downtown workers considering this is a short holiday week. Then again, it'll be there for the people (fools) who come downtown this Friday to do Christmas shopping.

Anybody who heads out there today, please post something about what it's like there (any lines, where to go etc.) I'm going to be heading out at lunch tomorrow. I'll let everybody know what the situation is like.

There are no lines. It's roped off in the middle of the lobby and there are maybe 6-12 people at any time snapping pictures. Not a mob scene by any means.

That's what I saw too. When I went to see it there was a slightly larger crowd, but everybody passing through there stops to check it out.

It's still extremely cool to see that trophy and know it belongs to the White Sox. :thumbsup:

Ask Brooks if it's coming to the U.S. Capitol. Sometimes senators host some gathering for winning teams with the trophies (which explains my picture - next to the Stanley Cup - that I own)

Ask the same question for the minor league affiliates in NC (Charlotte, Winston-Salem, Kannapolis).

Gotta see that trophy!

I am going to take a gander at the trophy today during my lunch break. I will take and post pics for everyone.

The trophy IS indeed at City Hall. It's right in the middle, so whatever entrance you use you should walk right into it. It's there the rest of today, tomorrow, and Friday. 8 am to 6 pm. I just walked past it 10 minutes ago.

I stopped by on my way into work this morning. My hands were shaking as I took my camera out of my backpack -- I can't believe I was standing right next to the World Series Trophy!

Can you touch it, can you get that close?

It's in a big case, and it's kind of roped off so you can walk around it in a circle.

YESSIR!

Just got back and saw it for myself and took 3 pictures of it.
There's never enough people around it where you can't be right up against the ropes. Most people are on one side of it though, the side that says "World Series Champions"

Gotta see that trophy!Not sure if the plan still stands, but I heard shortly after the Series that the trophy would be on display "in a place of prominence" at the Cell during the 2006 season.

I want to know if the pics come out good, if the trophy is in a box. I have been trying to get a REALLY GOOD pic of the trophy by itself to put up on a wall.

Sigh, guess I gotta go to a game at the Cell next season (would be my first game there in 12 years).

Yes, they come out GREAT!
Stopped by after work and snapped a few pics.
Not many people around the trophy at all - maybe they should put a boombox there playing "Don't Stop Believing".

I went at lunchtime earlier today, too, but I don't have my pictures yet. I'm still using film, no digital camera yet. As many times as I have seen that trophy on TV already, seeing it there right in front of me convinced me more than ever that it's true-THE WHITE SOX ARE THE 2005 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!

SMO
:D:

Edit: And what a subject for my post # 2,500!
