Kudos to the Sox fan on the Today Show

With our fair city facing one of it's more embarrassing days with the absurd ball destruction ceremony, I would like to thank the Sox fan who rightfully held up a sign outside of the Today Show that read, "Get Over It, Go To A Sox Game". It was in plain view for at least the last half hour of the show.

Too bad everyone will think it meant the Red Sox.

Nope, the guy who did it was smart enough to have 2 large White Sox logos on the sign as well.

LOL! Great sign. Thanks for relaying the story since I'm on Chicago and national sports media blackout today due to this incredibly stupid ball destruction BS.

I saw it too. It was a beautiful thing. Of course, they tried to pan away from him every chance they got.

here's the link to the Today Show website. You can see the whole video @
http://msnbc.msn.com/id/3032633/
look for...Latest Today show video, video 6 (Cubs' cursed ball to be destroyed). Plays in Windows Media player. About halfway thru you can see a good picture of the sign.

What nonsense

There is what looks to be a giant inflatable Steve Dahl in the background as well.
