    The entire scam is premised on the retarded notion that no hardcore Sox fan possibly could commute to downtown Chicago a few days in a row.

    It was better when it was accessible to the average fan who could only afford to pay for a one day admission and the CTA train fare to and from the State & Lake subway or el station.

    I liked it better when the weekend passes were included in the price of the hotel room. :angry:

    Fuck SoxFest.

    It got really shitty when they moved it to the Palmer House, jacked up prices, then made you either get a room and buy a weekend pass or buy a two day pass.

    SoxFest isn't worth what they're charging.

    Getting loaded afterwards is always good, though.

    People would bitch if it was free, you got free drinks and everyone got piggy back rides from Jenks and Thome. Who gives a shit. If you really went all you would do was bitch about how much it sucked. So leave it alone.

    If they brought it back to the Hyatt and had more vendors, it would be worth it.

    Palmer House is just not a good place for it.

    The first few years that we went it was a blast. Got some autographs, got to meet a bunch of fellow message board posters and a few players and got a weekend away from the kids.

    2006 was the last year we went and that's when it started getting bad. Mostly because they doubled the amount of people they let in from the previous year. Then they doubled the prices in 2007 and we haven't been since.

    06 Soxfest was a total clusterfuck. People were waiting in long ass lines, some which seemed to go noplace at all. There was no orginization and I saw some lady yelling at :gene: Honda as if he had any say.

    I saw Jason Benetti getting out of a cab on Thanksgiving at Midway. I said hello; we chatted for a bit about where we were going. I said Vegas he said South Carolina to announce a game; he told me I win that one. Really nice dude. Shook his hand and we went on our separate ways. My wife told me I was a nerd for talking to him.

    Everyone I've heard who interacts with Benetti says he's an awesome guy. Pretty nice life just traveling the country and announcing sports. probably is a virgin, though

    I remember getting John Rauch's autograph there probably the year after he was drafted.

    Also wouldn't be surprised if he runs train on unspeakable amounts of major and minor-league clingers-on, leaving you with literally nothing else to feel good about in life.
