Default *Official* WSI Preseason Gathering

It seems like I was just organizing the Christmas party, but spring training is in full swing and it's time to start thinking about the preseason gathering!

Since Opening Day is a little more than three weeks away (!) and my social calendar is filling up rather quickly for this month, the available dates are limited. So, I've decided to go with Friday, March 29 as the date for this year's preseason soiree. Please join us at:

Place: Rocky's, 234 W. 31st St., Chicago (FYI: There are some Lenten-friendly items on their menu for those of us who have those restrictions)
Date: Friday, March 29
Time: 7:00p.m.

Rocky's is solid (no pun intended) -- good food, nice ambiance, and near the 31st St. Dan Ryan exit & Sox-35th Red Line stop. Join us to analyze the ins and outs of White Sox baseball and toast not only the 2013 season, but Robin's second year as manager of our fine baseball team and Chris Sale's awesome contract extension.

I hope to see the usual suspects and any newcomers on March 29 at Rocky's!

Maybe Sale will pick up the tab now that he's rich.

Thanks for starting/organizing this. Should be a fun start to a fun season!

I wouldn't count out the White Sox toque just yet. Hell, I might be wearing my toque to Opening Day with this weather.

There was an odd bunch from a website
Who gather at Rocky's 'til midnight.
At tables they sit
Exchanging a bit
Of what passes for wisdom and insight.

Once again, a doff of the ol' chapeau to ChiSoxGirl for doing what she does so well. I plan to attend, maybe with son-of-tebman in tow (or I in tow with him ), and great thoughts will be discussed (at least for a few minutes until the real conversation begins).

Play ball, I say!

That poem is great! You're seriously awesome.

If tebman will be there, it's officially a party. I look forward to seeing you and hopefully son-of-tebman at Rocky's in a couple weeks.

I should add that I'll try very hard not to knock over liquids this time.

Good point. If necessary, the White Sox toque will be in use!

And hopefully our server won't spill anything, either. We don't need another ranch dressing incident!

The WSI Preseason Gathering is now just one week away and I am so bummed that I will miss another WSI event.

Thanks, ChiSoxGirl, for organizing this party; I am sorry that I cannot attend. Those of you who know me know that I cherish any time I get to spend with my WSI White Sox brothers and sisters. You are like family to me. Unfortunately, this event falls on a sacred day, one that I always spend with my biological family.

I know you will have a blast at Rocky's and remember to have a few for me. CHEERS! I hope to see you at a Sox game during the 2013 season. LET'S GO WHITE SOX! GO SOX!

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!

Can we get Bo Jackson to buy the first round to go with his first pitch on OD?

I don't know, is he worthy enough? Get McDowell to do a shot of Jack.
