Mets Split with Sox

July 2, 2013

I’m not a recap blog, so click here for a recap of the June 25 Zack Wheeler game against the White Sox and here for the June 26 Shaun Marcum game. That said, it was great to finally see the Mets play on the South Side. It’s the first time they’ve played in Chicago since […]


A Visiting Fan’s Guide to U.S. Cellular Field

June 24, 2013

U.S. Cellular Field aerial picture taken by me on June 26, 2011 from a helicopter ride. On the heels of my “Visiting Fan’s Guide to Wrigley Field” post, I wanted to create something similar for U.S. Cellular Field since the Mets will be making their first appearance there on June 25 and 26. The basics: Photo […]


I Witnessed a No-hitter

May 4, 2011

While the Mets have yet to have a pitcher throw a no-hitter, the Twins have tossed several of them, and I was witness to the most recent: May 3, 2011. (Depending where you look, the number of Twins no-hitters ranges from 5-7.) The game was the first White Sox game of our 2011 7-pack that […]


A Light at the End of the Tunnel

February 9, 2011

It’s a busy time for me at work with college basketball. The season is flying which is nice, but I’m ready for some baseball. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel. There’s a lot of news regarding Mets ownership lately, but, I’m not spending time talking about it one way or another. It […]


White Sox vs. Cubs + Blackhawks = Heaven?

June 14, 2010

I had never been to a Sox/Cubs game and when I saw a YouSwoop deal for $79 rooftop tickets, I thought it was a good opportunity to go. It also ended up being a night where the Cubs honored the Blackhawks for winning the Stanley Cup. The team, including coaches and other staff all walked […]


Blackhawks Night at U.S. Cellular Field

September 5, 2009

Friday night was Blackhawks Night at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. As a Blackhawks season ticket holder, Nik and I had the opportunity to buy tickets for the event which also got us into the White Sox/Red Sox game. The whole ticket package was a great deal: special event t-shirt, admission […]


Robin Ventura's

August 9, 2009

Since I know not many people will care about the White Sox/Indians game I was at on Saturday, I’ll leave with you a few pictures: On our way out we passed the above concession stand. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a closer look to see what food items it sold. This is a great view of […]


That's How You Do It?!?

October 1, 2008

Due to a schedule change this week I had off Tuesday and had secured tickets to that nights White Sox/Twins tiebreak game at U.S. Cellular Field. The winner would be crowned the AL Central Champions and head to the postseason. After a speedy game that saw about 6 hits total, Jim Thome went deep in […]


I Thought I Was Watching a Mets Game

June 15, 2008

That was what I was thinking while at the White Sox game Sunday afternoon with a few friends: Top of the 1st inning: The Rockies score 2 runs…with the help of a White Sox error. 2-0. Bottom of the 4th inning: The White Sox get a run back, 2-1. Top of the 5th: The Rockies […]
