Not much of a vandalism job. I was expecting more.

Wow.it’s not the first time the bronze statue has been vandalized. Chicago police removed a dead goat carcass found hanging around it in October 2007.
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
It's just as likely that Harry had a few too many, passed out and got painted by a group of frat kids.
Next Reds manager, second shooter. --Confirmed on Redszone.
I hate the Cubs fans as much as the next guy [even though one of my friends at work is one ugh] but c'mon, leave it alone people.

Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90

I have never seen a White Sox home game in person. I know only one person who is a White Sox fan and he lives in the Des Plaines, IL area. He is an executive for my employer, makes a lot of money and is a well-to-do person. However...
I have heard from other people in that part of the world (people from Chicago and Wisconsin) that the overall picture of a White Sox fan is of a rough type of person who has seen their fair share of bar fights. I have been told that you do not feel safe around U.S. Cellular Field, nor do you feel safe inside U.S. Cellular Field. Of course most of us remember the father-son tag-team that attacked the Royals 1st-base-coach. And months later another Sox fan attacked the 1st-base-umpire. Cannot readily recall this happening too many times in my life... let alone at the same stadium.
Just wonderin' if anyone else has heard the same?
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
Other then the horribly slanted upper deck where you feel like you are going to fall backwards walking up the stairs, I tend to like the stadium.
