Favorite Game That You Were At
Since I regretfully didn’t get a chance to see a game in the 2005 postseason, it’s June 20, 2006 – Sox beat the Cardinals 20-6. I love me a good rout. And they beat the eventual champs!
Favorite All Time Player That Doesn’t Have a Statue On the Concourse
Bo Jackson played 108 games in a White Sox uniform
What’s your greatest fear about the “rebuild”?
I fear that there won’t be enough depth. It’s easy to slot in a starting lineup, but I feel that the last few bench spots should be players who could easily start for another team.
Give us a #HotTake about the rebuild.
I’m not a #HotTake kinda guy
Favorite White Sox Twitter Account (Besides @fromthe108) and why?
Unsurprisingly, it’s the @SoxNerd. He’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and has an unsurpassed passion for what he does. He’s truly an inspiration, and great at what he does.
Person from White Sox Twitter that you’d most like to meet and why?
I’d like to get a chance to meet everyone from White Sox Twitter. It’s a great community and they help make being a Sox fan a great experience.
Favorite Non-White Sox Twitter Account and why?
My guy @theaceofspaeder because he does incredible, fascinating work.
What do you like best about @fromthe108 ?
They have fun and know their stuff. What’s better than that?
Gimme an “Uncle Rico” moment from your prior sports playing past.
I once hit three homers in a game in little league. Which is amazing since they didn’t have fences and I had to actually run.
Where would you take @ChiPartyAunt out on a date?
Guaranteed Rate Field. Where else?
Favorite performance enhancing drug?
The cream and the clear. Nobody likes needles.
Who do you hate more Jim Belushi or John Cusack?
Belushi. Cusack at least was in a few good movies – Con Air & Being John Malkovich.
What Other Chicago Teams Do You Enjoy
Bulls & Blackhawks
Favorite Chicago Sports History Moment
Obvious answer: Clinching the 2005 World Series. Otherwise: the Pudge Double Tag 8/2/1985.
Any Stories About Running Into or Meeting White Sox Players? Other Chicago Athletes?
Maybe not exactly what we’re going for here, but I once bought a book at a used book store that belonged to Rick Hahn. When I got to the checkout, they opened the book and a piece of his stationery fell out. I later showed it to Rick and he confirmed it was his.
Not necessarily a band, but MF Doom
