Today’s media session with manager Ozzie Guillen went very quickly.
"That’s what happens when you win," someone told Ozzie.
"Ha," he laughed. "I’ve been through all three … Good, OK and bad."
Today was maybe the hottest day of the year at U.S. Cellular Field. Drink fluids.
Yesterday was our annual Field of Greens golf outing at beautiful Harborside Golf Course. Players, coaches, staff and Chicago celebrties played a scramble along with 50-some foursomes of White Sox fans and Chicago White Sox Charities supporters. A good time was had by all and over $100,000 was raised to support pediatric cancer research at Comer Children’s Hospital and Children’s Memorial.
I won’t say what my team shot, but the winners came in at an impressive 20-under par.
It was great to run into former Sox like Al Weis, Donn Pall and James Baldwin, who flew in from North Carolina. Darryl Boston, Nick Capra and other roving instructors also were in town to join us.
A good friend was kind enough to take the photo of me here just before a tee shot on a par 3. No truth to the rumor that the shot landed wet.
