Mayor Daley Night

"The White Sox already have Mullet Night and Dog Day. Now add 'Mayor Daley Night' to the list," the Sun-Times reports.

"The South Side club announced Tuesday that it will honor one of the team's most prominent fans at the Aug. 3rd game against the New York Yankees."

The Beachwood has learned the following events are planned:

* Free uninvestigated punches on Rush Street to first 10,000 fans.

* Mass denial of the torture the Sox' low quality of play is putting its fans through.

* Bobbleheads of all City Council members who served under Daley; heads only swivel up and down.

* Daley family friend Megan McDonald will be named the team's new Director of Special Events.

* Just hours before the game, MLB will announce that the White Sox have lost out on the opportunity to play the Yankees. Instead, Derek Jeter and the gang will be pitted against a team from Rio de Janeiro.

Comments welcome.


1. From Spencer Maus:

* All union members working for the White Sox will get an 11 percent increase in salary, in spite of the attendance drop.

* Mayor Daley will sell all bleacher seats to the Milwaukee Brewers to cover the lost revenue from declining hot dog sales at the Cell. Starting next year, bleacher seats must be sold out before any other seats go on sale.
