Awesome Sox Fans Tonight
Two impressive aspects to tonight’s win in Colorado … 1. it seems like it has been a long time since we have had a "comfortable" victory, and 2. tonight’s crowd was a SOX CROWD. Not sure if you could tell on television or on the radio, but Sox fans showed up in amazing numbers at tonight’s game. There were hand-painted signs, Venezuelan flags flying and standing ovations for Freddy Garcia and the Sox hitters. It truly was amazing, and the Sox fans who ventured out to Denver deserve all the credit. Everyone on the team noticed the support. It was tremendous.
In talking to Sox fans at the game, many took this opportunity to add Coors Field to their personal list of MLB ballparks visited. Many are heading on to San Diego with the team. Keep the bandwagon rolling. I don’t remember such a partisan White Sox crowd at a road game since the Sox swept the Cubs at Wrigley (remember that Mike Caruso HR?).
Speaking of Freddy, what an outstanding performance. The Colorado radio announcers spent the last few innings of the game praising Freddy’s performance, saying that it was among the best by a pitcher at Coors Field this season. With our bullpen on fumes tonight, this was just what the Sox needed.
We want your opinion … a new wave of television spots began airing today. What did you think? Paul Konerko, Mark Buehrle, Shingo Takatsu and Tadahito Iguchi star in the new spots. I showed Mark the spots before the game tonight … he seemed to think Konerko has a future as an actor.
In addition to these spots, there will be others later this summer more along the lines of our first wave of spots featuring grinder rules. Let us know what you think …
