I just got surprised with this as an early bday gift, ozzie and crede will be at harrahs casino tomorrow from 5-8 for a meet and greet\autograph signing and free gift while supplies last, no pix allowed to be taken

Before them is andre dawson and some other cub player, i forget his name. Its being billed as "cross town classic", i cannot find any links on the harrahs site that is promoting it but you have to be there to buy tickets

I'll be there in my un named sox jersey

correct, sorry for not clarifying that

Im not sure what the guidelines are, id suggest calling before actually going. Only way i know im goin us cuz my mum is a diamond card member and got an offer for her plus guest to attend

Im having issues tho, do i want them to sign the world series sun times pic, or do i want them to sign a pic from a magazine of the trophy that says "88 years, and worth the wait" then i can hope to get the whole team to sign

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I called and they said it's for invites only.
You have to be a VIP. Doh.

Have a good time.

Here's something I found very interesting. I just spent the morning at Harrahs/Joliet. The Sox event is tonight and is for invited guests only. They have reached their maximum amount of invited guests. No one else will be allowed in. However, they are having a similar event for Cub's fans this afternoon with Andre dawson, etc. While I was at the total rewards center at Harrahs they were trying to give away tickets for the Cub's event. The girl said " they don't have enough invitees to fill the room yet. Oh how times are changing!

If u were a diamond member or above(my mum is diamond) u were invited to get tix

For dawson and ray cey, they were givin tickets away at the front to fill, i admit i am a dawson fan so i got them, was hilarious bein in my sox gear and goin in

you got a banner, for cubs was just a cub one, for sox it was a banner proclaiming the world series. Ozzie looked like he had just woken up or somethin. Crede was very quiet and didnt talk much, i tried to have a brief convo, like how his newborn is doin and such

With ozzie, i thanked him and asked "i dont wanna sound weird or somethin but can i get a hug from you" he laughed, stood up and gave me a hug...im so glad i was able to hug a world champion....glorious....they also ran sox pride on the projection screens. Free hotdogs and pop corn was served. I believe the cap for each event was 300 tickets

I was there in my "famous" un lettered sox jersey, next to my tall lenky friend in a black sox jersey. We were the 3rd or 4th group to meet ozzie\crede, and again, if people saw, i hugged ozzie

I was there and it wasnt as crowded as they expected. they ended up letting you go thru line more then once. I got my tickets from the world series signed and also the pennant that they gave away. Harrahs started giving tickets away to anyone that wanted them. I called my buddy and he drove over and got in also for autographs:D:
