Anyone know if the Sox are planning anything for Rooney's return tomorrow. I have to admit it will be a little strange seeing him in the visitor's radio booth.

do you squint into the radio booths a lot during games?:?:

I usually carry binoculars with me and look up into the booths to see the out of town announcers.

In an amazing moment, Kenny Williams will announce he has reaquired Rooney, Aaron Rowand AND Frank Thomas and only had to give up Brian Anderson and Jon Garland

I had heard that he Rowand was going to appear by riding his motorcycle through the centerfield wall while wearing his DVD leather jacket, but now his wife is saying otherwise? :dunno:

This will be bittersweet for me, cool that Rooney gets to come back and call some games at the Cell, but it just makes me hate the Score even more

How many innings of play-by-play does Rooney do during a Cardinals game? I think No. 1 voice Mike Shannon does the early innings plus the ninth (like Jack Buck did in his latter seasons).

Hi all:

Don't know if the White Sox will do anything for Rooney's return, but I'm going to the game tonight and I'm sure they'll be at least one "We Miss You John" sign floating around the stands.

Might try to pull him in on my radio at the park too.

Mike Shannon?

Saw Rooney at a bar last night and my friend asked if he missed working here, Rooney responded "I miss the city." Also the first time I saw a 2005 World Series ring up close, very impressive.

I miss Rooney. Listening to him was a ritual for me driving as a child until last year. Best moment is his announcing in the world series last year. I tried to turn off Joe Buck(who is anti - white sox) and put on Rooney, but with pause in time I couldnt. But he is one of the best.

From what I've heard over the years on KMOX, Shannon never had any best days as a broadcaster.

I was wondering how Rooney handled tonight's game. He had to sound contrite and frustrated at the Card's performance, but inside was he going nuts?

Maybe he excused himself many times for a trip to the head......
