All of the proceeds from the White Sox Garage Sale have always gone to White Sox Charities, which is a proven, non-profit organization that has been donating money to hospitals and community programs for years.

Where did the Cubs profits go? I haven't heard anything about it.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Chicago Cubs Charities.

Reminds me of a Simpsons quote:
"And a percentage of all the profits go to help children." (or something like that)
"Really? What percent?"
"Zero. Zero's a percent!"

Ha, great stuff. But you can't fault the Cubs here. How else would they pay for rent and staffing costs with their Premium Tickets self scalping operation???

I busted out laughing when I heard the newscast that a PORTION of the proceeds were going to Cubs Charities. Thats just a complete joke of a franchise.

...and that's another thing. The Sox have been doing this for years and I never heard any coverage of it in the media. The Cubs do it and they get an article in their newspaper and newscast coverage. Typical.

It wasn't just on WGN, I saw a newclip on at least 3 other TV stations.

I'm sure Hangar has already logged this obvious miscarriage of journalistic objectivity...

et us not forget that this is the same team that included as an item at a silent auction a used toilet seat from the locker room which was autographed by various Cub personnel. http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=61714&highlight=Toilet+seat

The WGN coverage on the day before the sale was so excessive that their "reporter" Juan Carlos Fanjul remarked that "he hoped this doesn't sound too much like a commercial." Duh.

He was probably "re-educated" before his next broadcast...
