Just got back from an event tonight at St. Catherine Sports Night in Oak Lawn where Coop was one of the featured speakers. The guy is just a great guy. I saw him taking time to talk to an old Sox fan (90 year old) and a guy with MS. He truly gets it and is an asset to the organization.


Interesting points during Q & A. He thinks Masset is going to be a keeper-- very impressed with him.

The Sox got two amazing prospects for only one of ours in the McCarthy deal.

The fifth starter? He says maybe be Hager but may be too wild. But, he thinks that Cisco is the dark horse!

He loved Freddy-- said Freddy guaranteed a victory after game 3 of the WS.

And did mention that Kenny loves Mark B.

I could go on forever. The guy was worth the price of admission!

Yeah, my stock price. Bought at $73 and sold at $17. Don't remind me.

LOL.

Held onto mine. Where can it go for crissake? Plus it's in an IRA so I couldn't deduct the loss even if I did sell it.

Yeah, losing some market share and investing quite a bit into Linksys definitely doesn't help things.

On the baseball side though, Cisco the pitcher has a lot of talent. It'll be interested seeing how he, Haeger, and Floyd look during spring training.

For what it's worth, it was parked there so long I decided to go for the tax loss and park it in Berkshire-Hathaway, Legg Mason, Oakmark and Vanguard funds, which have all done quite well.

My worst, though, was JDS-Uniphase. Purchased at $110, didn't sell it at $140 when it was added to S&P 500, rode all the way down to under $5. Now that was a mistake I will carry to the grave, like the White Sox not adding a 5th starter and carrying Koch as closer too long in the 2003 season. Or even the N. Cotts start in Yankee Stadium, lol.

I believe his name is Sisco. Cisco, is a company that makes networking products.

Yes, I know the company Cisco very well. We've used their products for several years which is why I mentioned the market share thing and their investment into Linksys for the consumer side.

I just noticed my misspelling of Sisco the pitcher.

encouraging to hear that about KW - Buehrle's relationship. It may be hard to keep him at a reasonable price, but i guess that mention is a bright spot.
