It's time to start thinking about that magical night when Gene Honda introduces the champs to the public in front of its real (not a bunch of corporate) fans. Can't wait.

Have the minds at WSI been tossing around any pre or post game festivities to celebrate the occasion? It would be awesome if we could all get a tailgate together or meet afterwards to soak in the glory of the banner ceremony!
Here's to 100 of :bandance: these this year!
Go SOX!

Hangar18's Trophy Tour will continue at Jimbo's pre-game. I'm gonna work on having a Puffers location in there somewhere. A bunch of us are also having a tailgate, but, the details haven't been worked out yet.

Think Honda will be there? He missed opening day last year to do PA for the Final Four. This year I suppose he could just bounce back and forth from Indy without missing a beat for either obligation, since the games are all on different days.

I would bet on him being there. I doubt he would miss the chance to introduce for the first time "YOUR 2005 WORLD CHAMPION CHICAGO WHITE SOX!"

Puffers is a GREAT place to have this gathering. Afterall, it's where we witnessed the Magic of October, so there's no better place to go back and toast another Championship season!

Can't wait to hear this speech you're penning, Mike! :wink:

Opening Day/Night. Trophy at Puffers 11am to 1pm. Jimbos 1:15pm to 3:30pm. Pacos Tailgate Extravaganza afterwards .......................

Although an exclusive party Saturday Nite Puffers, then on to Jimbos exclusively Sunday is a distinct possibility

Just tell me where I need to be. I can't believe you're going to start boozing at eleven on opening day.

I wonder if we're gonna all be exposed to a Hangar18 rant while we're there (SCFM #1 zillion)

I "should" be there for that shindig on the 1st. I never did grab a ticket for opening day (RATS!), but I'll probably "loiter" in the vicinity. MUST see the new and improved trophy! :redneck

You can always park east of State St. and come join us for the tailgate. The tailgate won't be the same without the cowbell!!!

For more motivation to come to both Puffers and the tailgate, Hangar18's Trophy will be there BOTH times. Who can pass up two times to be in the presence of THE trophy? :cool:

Did you say 11 a.m????? Wow. WSI is going to be a feisty bunch for the opening game. Got my tickets today!!! Whooo hooo!!!

So, let me get this right. Puffers on Saturday night...then a tailgater that kicks off at 11?? Wow.

Will there be a little WSI advertising to let the out of towners know where the tailgate is???

I probably won't be getting there until 3ish. I like to sleep in until at least noon on Sundays, and then I have a very lazy start. I could call you before leaving so that I know exactly where you're set up. I'm looking forward to seeing you, Robin, Jen, Cyndi, and everyone else there!!!

Good news/bad news. I got my parking passes and wound up with Green Coupons (lots F and L), so I won't be in C. I was joking about 11:00 a.m., it was an attempt to show how excited I am.

I might be at a friend's fundraiser before the parking opens up. She might have Robin Ventura and Jack McDowell there. I'll be with Jack and Robin before heading up to the park when the lots open up and start the grill!:D:

If Jack and Robin commit to her event and my friend says it is ok to publicize the event here, I'll post the 411 on this thread. If Jack and Robin say no, there will be no event.

BTW, this is the same friend who partied with Jack after Game 1 of the World Series and, as a result, he was with us in the Diamond Suite from the Second Inning through the Eighth for Game 2......

You're gonna make me walk completely around the ballpark from the street I park on Wells?

You really suck!!! :tongue:
