The Most Interesting White Sox In The World…

Chuck Garfien of CSNChicago.com put together a pretty entertaining “investigative report” on Wednesday afternoon concerning the recent, and suddenly more frequent, appearance of a certain cardboard cutout in the White Sox clubhouse.

The Most Interesting Man In The World, a popular character created by the beer company Dos Equis, has begun showing his face around the locker rooms of U.S Cellular Field after White Sox victories. In the form of six-foot tall cardboard poster.

Perhaps Garfien should explain:

It’s a life-size cardboard cut-out of the man, who has quickly become the team’s unofficial mascot, carefully placed in the player of the night’s locker after every Sox victory. You’ll often find him repeatedly leering over the shoulders of Paul Konerko, Jake Peavy, Juan Pierre, etc., staring eerily into every TV camera pointed in his direction.

….

He is the life of parties he’s never attended.
He’s won trophies for his game face alone.
He can speak French, in Russian.

And as reliever Sergio Santos so eloquently put it, “He doesn’t always drink beer, but when he does, he drinks Dos Equis.”

The White Sox have gone 32-24 since opening the season with a dreadful 11-21 record and currently sit only 4 1/2 games back of the Indians for first place in the American League Central. It’s almost as if the Pale Hose opened the season 10 games under .500 … just to see what it would be like.

Anybody? Anybody? Stay thirsty, my friends.

    I wonder what the official beer of the Chicago White Sox is (likely Bud or Miller) and how happy they are with this.

      That would be Miller. I’m sure they’re thrilled, buy hey, it’s one of the smartest marketing campaigns ever created if you ask me.

    Mmmm…. I think I prefer the Rachel Phelps cut out board that must be in the Indian’s locker room right now.

    I wonder why MLB suspends minor leaguers for 50 games because they smoke pot while at the same time promoting an overused, overaged spokesman for somewhat cheap beer.

      Money, and the laws of the United States of America, but you knew that.

    • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Jul 7, 2011 at 10:01 AM

      overused? overaged? nonsense. also, how does this campaign and the use of the cut-out have any relation to MLB suspension for smoking the sheeba sheeba? you must have been high at 9:34am eastern time this morning. wake and bake huh?

    For being so interesting he sure enjoys a mass produced beer that doesn’t even rate in my top 20 flavors. It is of my opinion that any man who only drinks Dos Equis all the time must be bland, as well as have something misfiring somewhere between his taste buds and brain. Boooo to the old man with bad taste! Boooo!!

      “We know!”

      “We piss in it…and that’s not all.”

      No matter what he drinks, he pisses excellence.

    I don’t always root for a crappy team, but when I do, it’s the White Sox.

    Also, like Ozzzie, He once had an akward moment, just to see how it feels.

    He once mentored a great baseball slugger into the ground… He is, the most interesting man in the world.

    I don’t understand why everyone loves THIS guy. All they did here folks is take Chuck Norris and true stories from his life and make him Spanish. It wasn’t that difficult. Chuck’s Beard does not approve….

    • Andrew - Jul 7, 2011 at 12:52 PM

      I don’t believe The Most Interesting Man In The World is Spanish….

      • Jonny 5 - Jul 7, 2011 at 2:53 PM

        No, he’s American. He IS Chuck Norris. This character though is a fraud and Spanish.

      The Most Interesting Hitter in The World is from Santo Domingo, Distrito Nacional, Dominican Republic. He’s six foot, 195 lbs and he could hit that Dos Equis guy 400 feet, more than 50 times per year, without breaking a sweat. He has hit home runs from the on deck circle. Also his beard is way better and he is a cake man.

    I read an article about a month or so ago about “the most interesting man in sports” and it had a bunch of quips like the commercials such as

    “He only needs three at-bats to hit for the cycle”

    and

    “He never misspells Coach Kryzyewski”

    It made me happy.
