I'd say pretty good. I can't ever remember Frank being scheduled to appear and not showing.

I'm hoping to hear good reports about Frank's condition....non-body builder I can deal with....300+ would be a problem though

I thought he was a no-show last year. I remember something about him wanting to spend time with his kids or family. I am guessing they waited to announce him so they would be sure he made it.

I believe he wasn't there last year because of his father, who was either sick or just died.

Damn you, Frank. I wanted SoxFext 2002 to be my coronation. JUST KIDDING!!!!

:shammy
That's right, Mágglio. You would never want a SoxFest to be your coronation because you are not an egotistical person like me.
