The White Sox were a strong team during their first two decades, winning the 1906 World Series with a defense-oriented team dubbed "the Hitless Wonders", and the 1917 World Series led by Eddie Cicotte, Eddie Collins, and Shoeless Joe Jackson. The 1919 World Series, however, was marred by the Black Sox Scandal, in which several prominent members of the White Sox were accused of conspiring with gamblers to purposefully lose games. Another pennant winner did not come until their championship season of 2005, when the White Sox won their first World Series championship in 88 years, breaking their epochal drought only a year after the Boston Red Sox had broken their slightly shorter but more celebrated "curse."

Audience: Employee Appreciation Day
Location: Sydney, Nebraska
Cabela's was in search of a popular sports star who was also a well known outdoorsman. After several sports celebrity recommendations, Cabela's hired Direct Sportslink to secure Bo Jackson (White Sox 1991-1993) for their annual employee appreciation day. Bo was fantastic. He spent the entire afternoon with their employees and even gave a motivational speech to the local high school football team.
At Cabela's, we have extremely high standards of customer service with the vendors we work with. Direct Sportslink provided the quality we expect and the customer service we demand. Cabela's seeks to bring our employees something new and exciting every year at our company picnic and the feedback we received from bringing Bo Jackson to our event has been awesome. The energy at the office is at an all time high thanks to you. I would recommend Direct Sportslink to anyone looking for an expert in the sports celebrity marketplace.
