Ultimate Sports Baby at Allstate Arena
I was on my own with the Ultimate Sports Baby today, so I decided to go to the Chicago Wolves game. First, it was the only game in town. Second, the Ultimate Sports Baby has not attended a game at Allstate Arena yet – the only remaining professional sports venue he has not attended a game in Chicagoland.
Beg, Borrow and Deal
Under normal circumstances I would have parked in the Target parking lot across from the arena for free. However, today I did not feel like lugging the stroller from the free parking lot to the arena so I chose to pay for parking – $11 for Chicago Wolves games.
As I approached the ticket office, I ran into Broker Ben who had a good seat in section 103 which has a box office face value of $26. I bought the ticket for $10 which saved me $1 off the cheapest seats of $11.
I ended up sitting in section 216 (a $16 seat) since it was the best place for me to sit and “store” the stroller near me.
Rockford IceHogs at Chicago Wolves
It’s a funny position to be put in. Cheer for the Chicago team or cheer for the Chicago Blackhawks minor league team. I found myself cheering for the Wolves as they lost 3-2 to the IceHogs.
