This is It
I think tonight’s crowd is going to be vocal and passionate. Because of the way tickets were sold on such short notice for tonight’s contest, fans who are here are going to be devout White Sox fans, and I think they’ll let the Twins hear it.
During the World Series in 2005 you could literally sense all the fans at home watching and rooting for the Sox. I hope it’s the same tonight. Think of the millions of Sox fans watching, cheering and rooting in front of their televisions at home, on the computer or watching in a bar or restaurant.
Wear black. Show your pride.
Sad to learn this afternoon that Ed Brinkman, former shortstop, White Sox coach and scout, passed away today in his native Cincinnati. Brinky was part of three Sox division champions: 1983, 1993 and 2000. He won a Gold Glove, finished in the Top 10 in MVP voting, was an All-Star and served the White Sox from 1983 through 2000.
Many of his friends will miss him.
Help us out tonight, Brinky.
As Ozzie said today before the game …
“Tomorrow, I will be in Florida. I hope central Florida. If not, then Miami.”
I hope I am in central Florida come tomorrow.
Go Sox Fans!
