Unfortunately, I was in a meeting and missed the call, but Widger left me a voicemail thanking me for purchasing season and/or group tickets. No it wasn't a recorded message. I think Brooks should have these guys drunk dial you while they're out having a few pops, the voice mails would be better.

So a heads up to all you ticket holders to answer your phones today and report back on who gave you a buzz.

Haha, that would be hilarious.

Widger:"Dude, I'm coming by. I'm so wasted... and I'm bringing girls...brghg,g,hgr.rghr.gh...rghrh...season tickets...brghhghrr..."

or

AJ: "This guy's ****in' wasted! I'm cool though. WHERE ARE YOU DUDE?!?! WE'RE HANGING OUT!!!! Whatever, come meet us. Oh, uh... season tickets, or something..." <click>

Just think of it from Widger's end. He has to call someone he does not know and thank them for buying something that he was not selling, directly anyway. But it's better than some tape recorded message, that would be tacky, especially with the season we are coming off. Even so, I could see the headlines in the cubune:

Cubs purchase minor leaguer's contract He did pretty well actually. You can tell he was a bit unsure at the end before hanging up. I could feel him thinking, "uhm, ok, what the hell do I do now."

Oh sure, it was a great gesture on behalf of the team. Sure beats some tape of Eddie Einhorn thanking them for their support.

Steve Perry: Yeah baby! Let's sing it!
Just a small town girl, livin in a White Sox world!
She took the evening train going to Sox Park!
Just a city boy, born in raised in south Chicago,
He took the evening train going to Sox Park!

I'm a singer in a smokey room
The smell of wine and cheap perfume
Callin to thank you for buying tickets tonight
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers, I'm calling, up and down this sheet
Buehrle is phoning to my right
We're people, living just to call *insert name*
Hiding, somewhere in the night.


Working hard to do my fill,
everybody wants a call
Payin' anything to roll the dice,
just one more time
We will win, they will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the winning never ends
It goes on and on and on and on


(chorus)


Don't stop believin'
Hold on to the feelin'
Season ticket people


Hey, yeah, so this is Steve Perry! And as your official mascot of 2005, I just wanted to thank you for buying season tickets! This is unbelievable!"

IGUCHI: Dome ninguchi jinkoku michogu...that means "AMERICANS ARE DUMB HAHAHAHA". [Shingo in background, club music clearly playing]: "Ah ha, you punked they asses!" (I understand Shingo is not on the team anymore, but artistic license folks!) IGUCHI: Oh, ah, congratulations on purchasing your season tickets. Thank you.


On another note, notice how nobody has gotten a live call? Don't you think it's more convenient for them just to pre-record a message and send it to you telemarketer style? That's what I assume they're doing until someone on WSI says they actually got to talk to one of the guys.
