I was talking with a friend today who went down to see the Christmas around the world trees at the Museum of Science & industry. She mentioned an awsome SOX tree withthe Trophy as the treetop.

I'm looking for images but havent found any yet.

I assume you mean "holiday tree".
Sounds cool, I wanna see some pics!

You can see three pics of the tree here: http://dailysouthtown.mycapture.com/mycapture/folder.asp?event=77326

And if you click the "Watch the Video" link of this page (http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=local&id=3662125), you can see channel seven's coverage with a few brief images of the tree (before quickly moving on to a very important story about ginger bread).

Sure would be nice to have a holiday wallpaper of the tree.

It looks like it would be pretty simple to make. Just get a Styrofoam ring, 23 (I believe) straws cut in pairs at a sequential lengths, paint everything gold and attach triangular gold paper to the tops of the straws.

I was at Pro Jersey Sports (1510C 75th Street, Downers Grove http://www.projerseysports.com/) yesterday and they had an ornament with A. J., Iguchi and Contreras holding the trophy.

We have a tree at home that is all Sox ornaments. We use a lot of key rings on it. I'll be looking forward to what the MSI tree looks like.

Nuts! That means my trophy paperweight isn't authentic.

I was thinking the same thing when I started reading this thread

The mention of a Christmas tree, really offends me. It should now be called a holiday tree.

How the heck did they balance the trophy on top of the tree?
