Thanks for the info. It didn't say anything about the banner. Any idea what time it will be raised.

03-31-2006, 03:22 PM
So, I take it that the banner will be raised after J. Kelley is done going his thing?

03-31-2006, 03:27 PM
The banner will be raised anywhere an hour before the game. They don't really specify.

Josh Kelley's appearance is a needless joke.

I think that the banners are being raised after Josh Kelley sings, First pitch isn't until 7:13pm so there is about an half hour for intro's etc.

Will the montage be the same (except for modifications in the pictures to accomodate the newest scenes from last year's Championship season)?

I honestly hope they don't change the music selections!

Josh Kelley's appearance is a needless joke.

Seriously. Someone on the board said they think this was a ESPN move. I tend to agree, why wouldn't the Sox have got someone from Chicago to help celebrate opening night??? Well...we did use up everyone in the playoffs I guess...except Buddy Guy.
