[27 Apr 2011 | No Comment | ]

It was one of those days where nothing went as planned. First, the babysitter called me to cancel. That was fine since I could just bring the Ultimate Sports Baby to the Cubs game with me. Next, the Cubs postponed their game versus the Rockies after a 54 minute rain delay (game was finally postponed at 2:15 pm). Ugh!

Once again I received free tickets to Monday night’s game since Cubs tickets are worthless thus far this season.

Cheaper on the Outside: Rockies at Cubs

“Cheaper on the outside” – the famous quote heard from all peanut vendors as you walk from your car to the ballpark. And, if you have been to Wrigley Field before, you know there is no way you cannot avoid a peanut vendor on your way into the ballpark. I would argue that they are not actually cheaper. Yet, my friend, Frank Garrett, buys these peanuts every game as he enters the ballpark – until tonight when he will no longer buy them “on the outside.”

I-94 Doubleheader: Rockies at Brewers

Two weeks ago when I attended the NCAA Tournament with two guys I met at an Indiana Pacers game in January, one of the guys invited me to the Chicago White Sox game on Wednesday, April 7. I guess his weekend’s only season ticket plan comes with one weeknight game during the season – just another way for the White Sox to sell tickets to a crappy night game in April.
Before this invite, I was already planning to attend the Milwaukee Brewers afternoon game scheduled the same day. One of …
