Hi all,
I'm in Chicago to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. Her children are taking her to the game and renting a diamond suite (suite 340) so that her friends can all come as well. I've also called in a bunch of favors and will try to get a former Sox player or two to visit. My mom founded the Nellie Fox fan club. We'll have a banner up and it being an ESPN game it'd be really nice if I can show here birthday wishes from all across the country here (or world.) Particularly, if people can say, "Saw your sign." Three generations of Sox fans are celebrating, my mom's 70th, my sister's 40th and my nephew's 8th.


Please post if you can here.

PS: If I've offended you with a comment or two in the past or we've disagreed on something, then I apologize and I ask you to take it up with me later, not today.

PPS: Joe Morgan, also a Nellie Fox fan, has been contacted about the event, I'm hoping he mentions something about it.

My mom founded the Nellie Fox fan club. Your mother is obviously a woman of taste and refinement.

I saw your banner draped out between innings. Too bad they couldn't get the win.

I was sitting down the line under your banner. At least she got to a thrilling end, despite the outcome.

Did anybody see the banner on TV or just in attendance?

The suites are really nice. A great place to take a party. We will do this again next year. :gulp:
