The REAL Reason I Went to a White Sox Game

It wasn't because the weather was perfect for sitting out in the bleachers for several hours. It was cold and gray. Fleece, hoods and blankets kind of weather.
It wasn't to see the famous new White Sox player, Manny. (It did help, though, to see Wes in a uniform all "buffed" up!)
It's wasn't to see the fireworks exploding out of the scoreboard - but that might've been fun.
It wasn't to sit near some VIP's from NPU, although they are very, very nice.
It wasn't even for the melt-in-your-mouth funnel cake - although I might have to rethink that one as it was soooooo good.
It WAS to get my very own Nancy Faust bobble-head figurine! She was honored at the Ballpark for her 41 years of service as the official White Sox organist! She is a North Park alumni with a major in Psychology who actually started playing the organ as a wee lass. She joins the group of
famous North Parkers including Dr. G. Timothy Johnson, Kevin Leman, and Governor Jim Thompson.
You are hereby invited to the City Nest to make her acquaintance. The price of admitance is certainly more affordable than a game at the stadium - even with the reduced rate. She may not be able to play this organ, but her head can keep the beat going! Nah, nah, nah, nah - nah, nah, nah, nah, hey, hey now....Goodbye! Thanks for the memories, Nancy Faust!

Being a Cubs fan, I must say that Nancy is the ONLY legitimate reason to go to a game at New Comiskey.

I must agree with you, Sonia. My thoughts completely!

But the bobble head is sure fun.
