Love it!

This entire thread is a fantastic read...all of these posts remind me of the old Cubune Headline Threads which I also loved.

October26 - Twenty-SEVEN years ago, I married my husband on October 26. Since that day, we have been blessed with a wonderful family. Then, on October 26, 2005, when the baseball gods bestowed their good fortunes upon us, we saw the White Sox win the World Series. An incredibly talented team of grinders made every Sox fan's dream come true. My family and I celebrated with reckless abandon. And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!

All the covers from the paper towel holders in the bathrooms will be gone after Sox Fest leaves.

Ray Olmedo gets halfway to the Palmer House and then stops for no reason and then lollygags the rest of the way there and is late.

Those sitting in the last two rows at Sox fest will be confined to the last two rows and not allowed anywhere else at Sox Fest (mimic Upper Deck policy).

Hawk says Yaz is the best he's ever seen at giving a clutch-hitting seminar.

Ozzie Guillen helps an elderly woman across the street outside the Palmer House.
People curse him out and heap scorn on him.
Robin Ventura knocks the old woman down and takes her purse.
People talk about how bad of a job Ozzie did and point out how much fun Robin appeared to be having.

Wedema:

I disagree. They've always had a half dozen or so former players including guys from back in the 50's and 60's every year.

Your'e right. The Sox do have a half dozen or so former players attend each year. But, in comparison, the Cubs had the following former players (not including current coaches and broadcasters) attend their convention in 2012: Ernie Banks, Glenn Beckert, Mike Bielecki, Bill Buckner, Jose Cardenal, Andre Dawson, Bob Dernier, Shawon Dunston, Jeff Fassero, Randy Hundley, Fergie Jenkins, Vance Law, Jon Leiber, Bill Madlock, Gary Matthews, Sr., Rick Monday, Milt Pappas, Scott Sanderson, Dwight Smith, Lee Smith, Tim Stoddard, Rick Sutcliffe, Steve Trout, Todd Walker, Billy Williams, and Eric Young.

There's a difference on how the Sox and Cubs run their conventions though.

The Sox put a feature spotlight on the guys that come in. The Cubs convention seems more like a meat grinder where you don't get to hear the past players talk or see them every day. The Sox are able to do more with the guys they bring in.
