CHICAGO -- Chicago became the only city to have a title in each of the four major sports over the past 25 years when the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup championship this year. So, the White Sox decided to host a little pregame celebration on Friday to recognize the accomplishment.
The Stanley Cup, the Vince Lombardi Trophy given to the 1986 Super Bowl Champion Bears, the Larry O'Brien representing the Bulls' six NBA titles and the Commissioner's Trophy for the 2005 World Series champion White Sox all were on display at U.S. Cellular Field on Friday night. Mark Buehrle represented the White Sox, Richard Dent represented the Bears, Joel Quenneville represented the Blackhawks and Jerry Reinsdorf, the chairman of both the White Sox and Bulls, represented his NBA franchise.
Quenneville also threw out the first pitch.
"To me, I feel good about the Blackhawks, because that's the last one," White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. "To bring the trophies of the Bulls, they're going to need a truck. I think it's a great thing to see, a great thing to have. I've never seen an NBA trophy. I've seen it on TV, but I've never seen it in person. It's great."
