Really nice guy, very polite. He had very complimentary things to say about White Sox fans, and said that when he first got here, he too was stunned at the "love" his team got from the Chicago Media and how the SOX were ignored. He said that hes good friends with Konerko and Rowand, and that theyve had that discussion time and again. He loved my Trophy and thought that was the coolest thing he ever saw. I decided not to name him, because of what he said about the Chicago Media. Very cool guy.

...wouldn't surprise me if it was Michael Barrett. Every time I hear that guy interviewed he's bashing someone deserving of being bashed, including the "flubsessed" media here in Chicago. He seems like a cool guy and would probably make for agood conversation over a few cold ones.

:gulp:

Hangar 18 and little Darren Baker as "dueling Darths" during "Cub-O-Ween 2006". Says Darren: "I'm glad this Hangar 18 guy came to the dark side, now our Ivy won't be dead after next year's Crosstown Classic".

Very cool guy.Yeah, really damning stuff. Better keep that name under your hat or he'd be traded immediately!

I heard that he also mentioned that newspapers were recyclable now, too! :D:

How dare you think that a member of that minor league ballclub on the northside is a cool guy! You MUST despise all things cub or you are not a true Sox fan!

You're not going to name him because of what he said about the Chicago media? :rolleyes: Never thought that you would go to the mat for a cub player.

Of course this is coming from the same girl who said she would trade D. Lee for Paulie in a heartbeat. How dare you look at stats?

It's not that I don't like Paulie(I am a reformed Konerko hater), but c'mon... :wink:

I like Henry a lot. He's a great guy. I have had good times with him in the past and look forward to more good times in the future. I just wish he would use his energy towards good and stop focusing on evil. :wink:

i will tease Henry, but he is absolutely the nicest person i have met from this site (granted, i haven't met most of you). I am a huge fan of his.

So, I see Scammy is back in town for this weekend's Cubfest and is trying to save his nice-guy image. Henry, I hope he did not hit you with a rum bottle.

Hangar18 is a good guy, but I hate these cliffhangar threads. Come on Hangar, spill the beans.

If it is Michael Barrett will you do me a favor Henry and tell him to get some sun or something. He's too damn pasty-looking to be playing in the sun all day. :D:

Barrett makes sense. His cousin is none other than Scott Fletcher.

My guess would be Jerry Hairston Jr. Local guy who played in AL several years, thus easily could have made friends with Konerko and Rowand.

Once you start down the dark path forever will it dominate your destiny.:smile:

Anyways, Hairston Jr. seems like a logical choice since his Dad and Grandpa both played for the Sox.

If it was him I'm sure Hangar would've mention that this Cub player is also a SOX fan.

"and said that when he first got here, he too was stunned at the "love" his team got from the Chicago Media and how the SOX were ignored"

Kinda rules out my thought, Hairston wouldn't be stunned.

Doesn't look like it's Barrett based on the other thread in this forum.

Okay, what did Henry do to get you to give him this endorsement, let you wear his tinfoil helmet?

Seriously, I've met Henry on several occasions, and he is a good guy. Funny, too.

I'm thinkin' no. In the thread that was started when he signed on the north side, there was a quote in there that had Howry taking shots at our organization, fans, etc. left & right.
