Chicago White Sox

10 Reasons I’m thankful for the Chicago White Sox

10.  Comiskey Park.  The park is nice and roomy, wide concourses and public transportation drops you almost right at the door.  Lots of good food, cold beer and great to see from anywhere.  Name it whatever you want, it’s always Comiskey to me.

9.  Avisail Garcia.  This young kid has potential to be a star.  All reports on him have a huge upside, praying 4 of the 5 tools come through to give Chris Sale a bookend on offense.  Right now the offense has zero excitement, save us Avisail!

8.  Opening day.  Is there a better day in baseball?

7.  Opening day 2006.  Another landmark game, fighter plane flyover, banner unveiling.  Amazing day.

6.  World Series Plaza.  My dad bought a brick with all the dudes in our family on it….and then he spelled one of my kids name wrong.  It will live for eternity at Comiskey Park.

5.  Ozzie Guillen.  He stayed 2 years too long he needed to leave earlier but the first couple years he was here, he was very entertaining.

4.  Frank Thomas.  The best hitter of the 90’s that was clean.  A 2 time MVP that should have been 3 but robbed by a roided up Jason Giambi.  Led the league in walks and OBP 4 times in the 90’s.

3.  Paul Konerko.  The Captain has always been a steady sight for all fans.  If he was hot or cold he always  looked the same.  Quietly performed and said little, came to work every day I could see him coaching one day.

2.  Chris Sale.  The Sox guessed right on that pick, he has given fans a must see pitcher.  When he is pitching you have to watch.  Here’s to praying the frail frame holds up!

1.  2005 World Series championship.  My dad hadn’t seen a championship in the city and said he might not see one in his lifetime.  Thankfully for both of us he was wrong.  I was lucky enough to see 3 games in person, it was amazing.  Game 2 of the World Series where Paul Konerko hit a granny and Scott Podsednik walked it off was a top 5 moment in my life, so lucky I was there.
