I remember at one point last summer when a lot of us, front office and fans alike, were questionning why our Sox were being ignored nationally.
Well, I think October and this offseason took care of any of those concerns. You can’t open a magazine
or listen to Chicago radio without running into your Sox.
A picture of our team celebrating on the field after Game 4 runs as a full-page photo in the most recent Sports Business Journal with the headline, "Major League Baseball Owns October." The ad promotes the ratings numbers for baseball in October.
This week’s Sports Illustrated contains two full-page ads with Sox players. Scott Podsednik is advertised as making an appearance downtown (it was Friday) at a major store, and A.J. Pierzynski is shown selling MLB Authentic Nike Pro baseball underwear.
And you can’t turn on the radio without hearing Don Cooper or Ozzie Guillen selling hi-fi, automobiles, steak houses or Training Camps.
It’s all Sox, all the time.
