On the Score today, I heard a tease several times today along the lines of:

"Tune in to the Mike North Morning Show this Tuesday morning at 7:05 for a major White Sox announcement...sponsored by Walgreen's"

I bet it's some promotional thing either with North's show or Walgreen's.

if it has anything to do with mr. north, i am not in the least bit intrested. and why would this "major" announcement happen the day after opening day?

Is the announcement that 'Aaron Rowand will not be in a White Sox uniform this year after all?':smile:

If it is sponsored, it is contrived and not some breaking news. They are probably giving away beach towels again this year.

No way is JR that generous. A voucher for 25 cents off a hotdog with the purchase of an Ozzie Plan:tongue:

If its not being announced until Tuesday its nothing major anyway. Who announces breaking news 5 days beforehand.

Good point - I didn't read "Tuesday" the first time ... thought it said tomorrow.

:dtroll: The "BIG" announcement on Tuesday is that Mike North has reached an agreement with Walgreens to sell "DA MINI PUPS"..:)

Maybe he is retiring from broadcasting to go run a Walgreen's. :praying:

A "major" announcement five days from now? Doesn't sound too important if they're waiting that long to announce it.

Hint: If it's sponsored, it's commercial. It's some kind of promo involving Walgreen's and probably North. Yee-haw....

It probably involves someone from the organization as a regular guest or a ticket giveaway.

North is changing his meds and Walgreens is donating the new ones......:tongue:

Funny, earlier today I was just wondering if they had been giving away any tickets and saw this on their site. I guess he gives the cue to call to win

Actually possible. End of his ARod like contract creeping closer and closer, and it's gotten good with public stories of them wanting a buy out earlier, him talking against management on the air, doing a lot of games from home lately, him threatening to sue a bunch of sports radio message board posters, and
'insider' people on that board saying he might not last another month.

Don't like to make fun of someone losing their job, but he's already a millionaire and he regularly shows that he's classless, so this has been better than Days of our Lives.

North is famous for pulling off dumb, brainless, stupid, insipid, uninspired, moronic, idiotic, pointless, jackassed, dumb, stupid devoid of all intelligence and thought April Fool's Day jokes. I'll bet that's what this is. Something dumb, brainless and stupid.

No, it's a ticket giveaway sponsored by Walgreen's.

I think Walgreen's is re-issuing their 2005 baseballs - they find some undiscovered inventory that they have to get rid of at "back to 2005 prices". Only $ 2.19 each and you don't have to buy the Sun-Times to get them.

WOO HOO !

He's making the jump from Acyclovir to Valacyclovir.:bandance:

He probably bought a brick for Licorice and had Walgreens pay for it.:D:

I bet I won't listen to it because it's on North's show.

Singleton is getting better. Give him time. Remember how bad DJ was when he started?

And IMO, DJ still isn't very good. Singleton is improving, but hypothetically if Steve Stone wants the job, bye bye Slow Swing.

I want Mags back

Maybe they are going to announce that yesterday's game did not count and that the real opening day is tomorrow.

Hmmm, I guess I was right, minus one game.
