Hi. I know this was probably talked about before, but I haven't had the chance to go online in a while. I just wanted to say that I had a great time at Sox Fest. It was great seeing the flying sock in the air, and very nice meeting Palehose George & Ihatethecubs. I hope to see you guys all there next year!

51 days til baseball's opening day!!!

Oh, I'm sorry Far West. I thought FarWest meant Western suburbs. Silly me.

This was my 8th year in a row to go to Sox Fest...except for 1995 when SoxFest was canceled due to the Baseball Strike.

Waiting in line for autographs is no problem for us Die-Hard Sox Fans. Getting to have a few words with the players & pictures & autographs make it well worth the wait. Plus getting to chat with other Sox Fans.

After seeing & hearing Kelly Wunsch play guitar & singing with the Beatles Tribute Band "Twist & Shout" at the Sox Fest Family Party, it would be an awesome idea for the Sox players to put on a variety show for us Sox Fans next year.

Jim Parque is a pretty good comedian too. I think I have some video tape of from when some of the Sox players performed at a Comedy Club a couple of years ago.

I haven't been able to be online in a week. Ditto to what everybody else said. I had a great time and met two White Sox legends, Pale Hose George and Jerry Manuel!
