White Sox Hotel Only Two Blocks From Car Bomb

Terez, I saw the Hurt Locker..I'm not going anywhere near that thing..

The Chicago White Sox were in town facing the Yankees..Their Times Square hotel was two blocks from where a car with explosive devices was found Saturday night. When Paul Konerko returned from dinner he was told there was a suspicious car parked that caused the area to be blocked off. Two hours later, Konerko said he received a text message from trainer Brian Ball that there was a bomb threat. Paul Konerko said he stayed in his room watching the news until he felt safe..Reliever Matt Thornton didn’t hear about it until the next day.. “I heard sirens last night,” Thornton said. “I didn’t think anything of it. I just thought it was a normal Saturday night in New York.” Pretty scary stuff..-TO
