OK...so I made it through the rain delay and waited out just long enough to see Thome's massive 430 ft :bandance: . Soaked and cold, my girlfriend (who is a cubs fan) decided she had had enough cold and rain for the evening so we headed down to the train station and were waiting on the platform. An older portly gentelman in a suit and tie walks up to me and says 'here, you take this...your a sox fan'....he hands me a corked/sealed bottle of red wine...etched on the glass 'Congratulations 2005 world series champions Chicago White Sox'. The bottle is a 2003 merlot and even has a serial number. A guy offered me $500 for the bottle later that night. Best souvenir ever!

Sweet deal...even if that guy isn't a Sox fan, he is deserving of honorary Sox fan status!

"If anybody drinks merlot, I'm LEAVING!"

Ha, just kidding. That's a really cool souvenir. Kinda makes me want to crack open a bottle of wine right now, but I have to go to work instead.

They should get one that says "HE GONE" and "You Can Put It On The Boarddddddd YES!".

Although it could never replace my Homer Simpson one "MMM.... beer <sound of beer opening> <sound of Homer chugging> WOO HOO! YES, OH YES!"

They do have one of those. It's the call Hawk made when Jose Valentin had the walkoff against the Cubs

They have a bottle opener that says Jose Valentine. However, they do have a pizza cutter that has Rooney's call for the last out of the world series. They are available at Dominicks for $10

Just an update on the World Series "talking" items. There are now 4 items that have the Rooney call of the last out: the aforementioned pizza cutter($10), a bottle opener($8), a keychain($7) and a can holder($8). I know because my store sells them! :wink:

I have one of those. It is cool, but they need a new one with a current player.
