How much do they pay the opposing team to allow access like that?

They get a tour of the ballpark??? How come the Sox don't make that available to their own fans?

Should be a very intresting weekend

No wonder there were so damn many of them at USCF last year (if they offered it last year).

Hopefully there aren't more here in August than last year. It was nauseating to sit through a home game with 50% Red Sox fans.

Not a bad deal.
The Jersey alone is $200 now.

Does this mean that there will be even MORE Bo-Sox fans at these game? Maybe this will motivate OUR Sox.

That's a very good deal. I'd love to see our Sox try a couple of these out.

I'd be willing to bet that it's a replica jersey, and probably a poor one at that.

I like the picture on the brochure of the jets flying over USCF before the 2003 All-Star game.

Would love to get a copy of that for my PC wallpaper.

There is a picture of an airplane, but no mention of airfare being included. :?:

Looks like you gotta find your own way from Boston to Chicago?

Looks like it, no mention of airfare is made on their main travel site:

The only way anyone will ever have a home game against the Red Sox without an inordinate number of their fans in attendance is during the playoffs. I was at ALDS game 2 and it wasn't anything like when they are here during the season. Tickets probably sold out to White Sox fans before we even knew we'd be playing Boston (especially since that situation came down to the final three games of the season).

Most of whom are Cubs fans with Boston hats on.

The Yankees series are just as bad. I was at that game in 2002 or whenever it was that Foulke served up the homer to Giambi in the 8th that cost the Sox the game. It sucked to hear the majority of the crowd actually cheer.

Red Sox Destinations is the only way to represent Red Sox Nation on the road.

:o: .................... :rolling: :rolling: :rolling:

This line must be missing from that ad....

Demanding to be traded at the beginning of every offseason/at the trade deadline and then a week after proclaiming Boston is where you want to end your career is the only way to represent Red Sox Nation in the media.

Get that **** out of my house! lol

As long as they're paying to get in and the White Sox are not scalping a majority of their tickets, who cares. I went to a "Clash of the Sox" game (lol) last year and it was fun. I had Red Sox fans all around me who actually spoke about the game and about both teams and did it with a lot of respect and insight. One of the guys was just too big of a Jonathen Papelbon fan, but who could blame him at the time (this was when he was 20 for first 20 saves or so with a ERA under 1.00). Overall, a very solid experience (except for the fact that we lost!! :angry:).
