A White Sox fan?!  Jeeze, I thought better of you than that...

Who, me? Nope. I am just sick and tired of the cubs sucking it up this year.

However the White Sox (yes, I'm a fan) aren't sucking it up this year. Unfortunately where I live, we get more Cubs games on TV than Sox games.  I can get Bell's Oberon at US Cellular and usually do when I'm there.

While the Cell certainly isn't Comiskey, and most definitely isn't Wrigley, the few times I've been there I've been super impressed with the quality and variety (as far as stadiums go, anyway) of the food and drinks. Reminds me of new Yankee stadium.

True, it doesn't smell like a urinal. ;)  I guess for tourists it's a big deal, but to someone like me who used to live within walking distance of the park and went to several games, the "Wrigley experience" is highly overrated.  I did do a rooftop game once and that was... different. ::)

BAH!  There are things to like about the ball yard. Nothing to like about the team (and my MIL is a huge Bridgeport-native Sox fan). 

It's also the only place I've felt threatened by the fans.  But the fist-fight on the ramp may have something to do with that.

Of course, I've felt somewhat threatened wearing my Bears jersey in Wisconsin but I never actually thought a gang of Packers fans would try to beat me down.

As you can tell, I am not a Sox fan and it costs me money every year in my Sox/Cubs bet.

I love walking out of the tunnel at Wrigley and seeing the ivy and the scoreboard. There's nothing like it.
I also end up holding it for as long as I can, 'cause those mens rooms are nasty >:(
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.
