The ads where they're on the El and they turn into angels or something like that?

Oh yea, haha, I remember they had one where Buehrle threw a pitch so hard it broke the space time continuum.

Having said that, I just saw the new commercial. It makes the el commercials look great.

I don't expect top-line quality; these are ads that will run exclusively on local TV and only for a couple months. I do expect them to look professional. Middle-school quality ads might fly in Kansas City or Cleveland, but this is Chicago. Act like it.

On another note- someone might want to let the White Sox know that the term "blacklist" has a very negative history/connotation-

"Are you now, or have you ever been, a fan of the Chicago White Sox?"

Don't know if many would admit to that now...

One thing Brooks is good at is followup. I complained about how amaturish the "pie" ads looked to me.
Brooks thought they were a great inside look at the players having fun.

Once again IMHO the Sox organization is stale, with too many employees hanging on because of Jerry and his famous loyalty to employees.

The only answer is Jerry must go and take his posse with him.
