I was just going to put this out for discussion, and am1000 decided to make this a hot topic also. Carmen & Silvy are saying that the other team gets the most unnecessary coverage of this, and that the SOX legitimately will be the hotter ticket in town, and will the media cover this accordingly?

Once again, the anticipation for Gary Coleman is palpable!

There will probably be some token stories here or there but it will generally be ignored up to the sale. Then you will see all kinds of stories talking about how "shocking" it is that the Sox are selling tickets so quickly.

Sox Tickets dont go on sale until Jan 27.

The media will probably be all over the fact the Cubs have sold out all their games for the 06 season, and there is a waiting list for season tickets blah blah blah. Who cares.

Trib Sox beat reporter Mark Gonzales has a small story about the club level and scout seats being sold out for the remainder of the season and the Sox selling full-season plans beyond the dugouts this season.

Happy now?

Let the Cubs with that other award that starts with an "a." Like you said, "who cares?!" We won THE ULTIMATE AWARD on October 26, 2005. :cool:

What if the unthinkable happened, and every single game sold out a day after tickets went on sale. Everyone would be shocked and the news would be all over it. Anything can happen! No one expected 1.75 million people to crowd the loop for the victory parade.

What I think will happen is the hot games will sell out first right away. I wouldn't be surprised if over a dozen games sold out immediately. Then people will realize most games aren't sold out, and they have options on which game, and when, to purchase tickets. Then the KC, TB, and Detroit games will go ignored while everyone picks up the bigger games. I wouldn't be surprised if the KC games draw less than 18K, which will inevitably make the news.

The Gist of this topic on the radio, was that though the other team will get the hype for no real reason, the SOX will prove they deserve the hype, having actually WON something, and be the hottest ticket in town. The fact this is being discussed and brought up is good news in itself ............ The SOX are on the radar. The SOX will be the hotter ticket and this is the earliest the Ticket Sale of SOX has been a topic on the radio. How things change here huh?

Wouldn't make much news.....until during a heavily rainy, 38 degree Wednesday in April, the Sox draw 21k for the Royals. Then the front page sports will show empty blue seats (an old picture since they'll have made them green by then) and a column bemoaning the lack of Sox fans coming out to see a championship team.

Hangar,

You know you're my friend. But what the media says these days is as irrelevant as what Cubs fans say. The answer is the same: The White Sox Won The World Series. That is all we need to know.
