Stace and I broke rank and joined Stef and John for the half-priced, Tueday night Sox-Phillies game. The Sox game we went to last year sucked — in a word. Last night was the opposite outcome: The seats were far better, the teams combined to score 25 runs (9 homeruns), the food vendors were snappy (but inexplicably give you just one beer at a time), and we didn't struggle with the insane parking lot.
Critics often compare Comiskey/U.S. Cellular to Baltimore's Camden Yards as examples of “how not to” and “how to” build a ballpark in the early 90s. We enjoyed Camden, but the comparison is unfair. The White Sox organization has worked hard to improve their park and the overall experience is as good or better than any of the newer parks I've been to. I'm glad we gave it another chance.
I haven't gone all Sox on you. I am plenty hungry to sweep them and the Cub-hating attitude out of Wrigley on the July 4th weekend.
