Fun at the Old Ballpark

sox.jpgBeing a lifelong, diehard Cubs fan, I’ve naturally had a complete aversion to all things – ANYTHING – White Sox. Can’t help it, that’s just the way it is. Both sides of town know what I mean. That said, I attended my 2nd Sox game yesterday…and I liked it.

It was a company-sponsored outing yesterday at Comiskey (always Comiskey), and we spent the afternoon watching the Sox-Tigers game from the Warning Track area underneath the bleachers (if they had that at Wrigley I’d be there in a *heartbeat*). It was a completely different experience than Wrigley. First, the place is huge. I’m-stuck-in-a-cave-and-can’t-get-out huge. Second, all the flashing lights and fireworks and t-shirt cannons gave me A.D.D. Though, to be honest, I’ve already been accused. Oh, and they also have parking. P A R K I N G. But it was all these differences that made it so much fun. Granted, the Sox having the best record in the majors certainly helped (be proud Chicago), but it was very exciting nonetheless.

Good job, White Sox.

ps Just to put all you Cubs fans at ease, while this was my 2nd Sox game, I didn’t pay for either one. Ka-ching.

pps I can’t wait to get back to Wrigley. Go Cubs.

    But you’re from the SW burbs. Traitor!

    True, but lucky for me my favorite aunt saved me. It’s her fault that I’m a Cubs fan.

    Your point raises a good question though. Does the north side/south side, Cubs/Sox division run all the way into the suburbs?
