11 YEARS AGO TODAY: HAIL TO THE WHITE SOX

On this date in 2006, the World Champion White Sox were honored at the White House in a ceremony that included President Bush but not manager Ozzie Guillen, who said he was on vacation.
Many of the champs were at the ceremony and Jermaine Dye and Paul Konerko presented the Chief Executive with a White Sox jacket.

The President, a former rival of the Sox as owner of the Texas Rangers, recognized many members of the Sox party and touched on many subjects during his remarks, which lasted about 11 minutes.
