White Sox Parade

Published:

I hope all of you White Sox fans out there got a chance to see the victory parade in Chicago yesterday.

It was the most impressive ticker tape parade I've ever seen with probably a half million spectators and over 13 tons of ticker tape...looked like a blizzard out there; and F-14's from the IL National Guard participating.

The ceremony was very moving...this is coming from a life-long fan who saw them defeated in the '59 series against the L.A. Dodgers as an avid 8 year old baseball fan. I have to admit, there were tears in my eyes yesterday just like Jerry Reinsdorf.

The irony is that this World Series had the lowest TV ratings of all previous modern day World Series, but anyone who watched it will wonder why.

I'm very proud of our team for showing that 25 regular guys and a great owner/staff/manager and zero superstars can come together and accomplish what they did this year. I'm mostly proud of the City of Chicago for throwing the best damned parade I've ever seen.

I love this city.
