Lunch Thread: Lackeytime In Chi-Town

When John Lackey faces his 7th batter tonight, it will be the 6,043rd regular season batter step into the box to face him in his career and he will surpass Mark Langston for sole possession of 5th place on the All Time Franchise rankings in Batters Faced. He will need to face more than 600 additional batters to best Frank Tanana's 4th place mark.

First pitch is at 5:11 PM Pacific Time... this is of course a promotion on the part of 7-11 stores in Chicago to have the Chisox games begin at the time matching their store name.

I regularly buy pints of ice cream at 7-11 - late night sweet tooth, only place open nearby, impulse purchase all the way. Ben and Jerrys, Haagen Dazs... but I swear almost ever pint they have has melted at some point and been refrozen. I am starting to wonder whether 7-11's actually buy all of their ice cream from some distressed sale. Anyway... don't buy your pint ice cream at 7-11.
