Take me out the…mall

What is up with this city and its obsession with baseball?  I think all those years living on Los Angeles spoiled me– not a word about sports the entire time.  People are too busy there running around trying to “make it big” to run around after a ball, I guess.

Frankly, I can’t think of a worse way to spend a day– sitting in a hard seat under the blistering sun and humidity (another great element of Chicago of which I was unprepared) with a bunch of screaming drunks all around me?  It sounds like my own personal nightmare.

At least hockey is in a climate controlled environment.  And it has fights.

    At least the hockey fans don’t shoot people on the stereet after the game. At least, not that much.

    I somewhat agree, but I do enjoy the occasional hot dog while I watch a group of millionaires throw a ball around.

    Wait…is this supposed to be a Chicago blog or an “LA is cooler than Chicago” blog? Cuz I’m sure that if you change “outside” to “inside” you’re describing pretty much every concert…unless you think standing for 4 hours is better than an uncomfy chair.

    really? because I hear more about sports in LA than I did in Chicago. Dodgers anyone? And common, Chicago has the Blackhawks and Wrigley Field, what do you expect? Remember the SuperBowl Shuffle?
