Keep voting, Sox fans. A record number of votes have already been cast, which throws the whole race up in the air heading into tomorrow. Check out this story from MLB.com.
We were able to find a plane to fly over Kauffman Stadium before today’s game (4:30 to 6 pm) with a sign reading, “Vote for JD – whitesox.com.” We also have a request in to the downtown buildings to see if any want to light up “Vote 4 JD” tonight. Later today, we are going to send out a press release listing all the things we’ve tried to do to help our fans vote and vote again.
Word on the street, true or not, is that Longoria is picking up support from Chicago National League fans who just can’t stomach the idea of yet another White Sox fan winning the vote, while Jason Giambi earned the endorsement of some goofy national mustache group. I also just heard that some Boston fans are voting — many for Longoria — in an anti Giambi move.
Keep plugging away, Sox fans, this is something we know we can win for JD.
As For the Game
We tried to lose that every which way and yet won. I choose to take that as a good omen.
