The Winner: Chicago Sky and Little Italy

22 May 2008 No Comment

The Ultimate Sports Wife and I are attending the Chicago Sky’s home opener tonight. One might ask – why would you attend a WNBA game when the Chicago White Sox are playing tonight as well. The answer to that is easy – the neighborhood the Chicago Sky plays by (Little Italy) is much better than the area around US Cellular Field.

Which got me thinking – if one was to attend only one game to attend with their significant other during the week – how would you choose? Remember, if you are planning a “date” for the evening there needs to be activities for both parties.

This week a few of Chicago’s teams were home – the Chicago Rush Monday night, the White Sox all week, and the Chicago Fire vs. a Polish club team (Wisla Krawkow) last night.

If I was attending the game alone or with friends, I would rank the priority of attending the events as follows:
1) Chicago White Sox
2) Chicago Fire
3) Chicago Sky
4) Chicago Rush

However, since I am attending with Nicole, I would rank the venues (based on their proximity to where I work / live and the neighborhood that surrounds that venue) as follows:
1) UIC Pavilion
2) Allstate Arena
3) Toyota Park
4) US Cellular Field

By adding the totals, I determined the best fit is to attend the Chicago Sky game with a post game Italian dinner:
4: Chicago Sky and UIC Pavilion
5: Chicago Fire and Toyota Park
5: Chicago White Sox and US Cellular Field
6: Chicago Rush and Allstate Arena
