Continuing on with the FanPost(TM) travel theme, anyone up for a RR gathering on Friday, July 2 in Chi-town USA to watch the Reds beat up the Zambranoless Chub$?
I'm going to the July 3 and 4 games but will be in Chicago from Friday (flying to Dayton, driving with family to Chicago, stopping some time to watch the USA team at 2:30pm insha'allah they get revenge on Ghana tomorrow) to Monday.
I haven't been to Chicago since...since...since...college. That was a freaking decade ago. Eleven years actually! Gasp! Used to drive up from Miami to see the Reds play. Back then, Chub$ fans weren't so annoying, and it was pleasant to go to Wrigley Field even if you were dressed up in the other team's gear. It also didn't cost fifty freaking dollars for freaking bleacher seats. I don't know if there was even such thing as MLB.com back then, but there definitely was not MLB.TV. People still watched the Chub$ on WGN even if they didn't live in Chicago. And E$PN was still watchable.
I don't know Chicago very well, and since it's been so long since I've been there, I don't have any idea where a good place to watch the game would be, so I would be open to any suggestions.
It's been a decade since I've been there, a decade since the Reds have won, a long, long, long, long decade, but 2010 is a new decade, and our farm is ready for harvest. All things grow, all things grow.
