Judging by the title, I thought this thread was going to be completely different. Not so literal, that's for sure. :smile:

Yeah, but it doesn't exactly wind up being free when you have to pay to park and then pay to enter the zoo.

The way this team is going right now, a Lion will probably eat one of his legs.

Let's hope he's still a member of the 2006 White Sox by then.

I'm pretty sure the Zoo is free on Tuesday, you only have to pay to park.

Perhaps he can get the fire back to steal bases by pretending the lion that tried to eat him at the zoo is chasing him from first to second.

Yes. I was just letting people know an adult is going to have to shell out $18 to get inside the zoo to get an autograph.

As far as Lincoln Park Zoo goes, there's nothing on the zoo site or the Sox site about this. I've been watching as last year I was able to get Uribe and Perez there.

LINKY (http://www.brookfieldzoo.org/0.asp?nSection=2&pageid=167&nLinkID=4)

It does say that Riske and Podsednik are both a MAYBE though. Does anybody have official word?

Yeah, I couldn't find a link either but I did see it onthe computer. My co-worker had it up on her computer and I couldn't find the site after that. The trophy is there today I know but the site she had up did say current players.

The Brookfield Zoo Link said Podsednik and Riske, I could care less about Riske (though I think he is good), I just want S-POD for my wife...she loves that guy...and I have no idea why.

How early should I get there? I could care less about the zoo itself, I just want those damn autographs!!

Check out the Brookfield piggy litter, they are cute and all the names are from the 2005 Sox. Never thought I'd meet a piglet named Tadahito.

Just watch out for those detroit Tigers at the zoo. Hide your women and children. Mean SOB's, they should be put down. The Cubs at the zoo.....very passive. OK, I'll stop.

What Podsednik are you watching? His AVE is .273 and his OBP is .350. He's second on the team with 40 BB.

Maybe he'll stop by your house to give you autographs so you don't have to use any of your gas!

I am going to get there about 10:30, I figure a half and hour beforehand and then an hour and a half to get an auto will be more than enough time.

Chill out, dude. I'm just letting everyone an autograph will run you $18 instead of being "free." I thought some people might like to know that.

The WHite Sox website now lists both Pods and Riske as attending.
