Four weeks ago I had the same predicament. Attend the Friday afternoon Cubs game, the Milwaukee Brewers night game or the Chicago Sky game. Most people would never consider attending a WNBA game over a Major League Baseball game but that is what I ended up deciding today for obvious reasons. First, I had to work – meaning the afternoon baseball game was out. Second, even though I am working in the northwest suburbs, I would get home too late from Milwaukee – probably around midnight.
Thus, the Chicago Sky was …

Last year the Chicago Sky hosted camp day at the UIC Pavilion – a Wednesday afternoon game in July. That day I received a free ticket outside of the arena and my seat was in the row behind the New York Liberty bench.

Last night, we went to the The Chicago Sky’s home opener at the UIC Pavilion. Now, you may wonder…with the Chicago Fire, the White Sox, the Chicago Rush in town, why would chose to go to the WNBA game? Well, the best feature of the UIC Pavilion is its proximity to Little Italy. You can stay for the game and then, walk to an amazing Italian meal after.
Our favorite place, Tufano’s, is within walking distance from the stadium on the eastern …
