Other than that, the game was lots of fun, even if the Tigers got routed. (As I was there on Jeff's tickets from his company, and he's a big Tigers fan, I was a Tigers fan tonight, too.) We had excellent seats in the 100 level on the first base side. I figure I've done pretty good this season. I set out at the beginning of May witha promise to myself to see more ballgames this summer as it is my last summer in this fair city of two ballparks, and I've done it. I've seen 8 Major League Teams play, and, of course, the Cubs and the Sox multiple times - Cubs, Sox, Braves, Tigers, Orioles, Reds, Dodgers, and Twins. And the vast majority of the games, I didn't have to pay for!! Even better!
[Later: In my general disgust over being puked on, I forgot to mention one of the neater things I've seen at a ball game. Three Roman nuns, in full habit, sat several rows in front of us. They bore a large sign that said, "Nuns love the White Sox!", and featured a picture of a nun hitting a homerun. In the 7th inning stretch these ladies, all of them in their sixties to my guessing, were dancing in the aisles and then were invited up on top of the dugout to continue their dance. That was awesome! Good for the nuns, for getting out and enjoying a ballgame!]

hahaha, your crappy football team is crappier than Vandy's crappy football team :-) Althought I think Duke takes the cake on that one....
I think you get THAT DRUNK on $5.50 beers the same way you get drunk on free beer - one glass too many at a time.
The Mayor of Chicago, signing off.

Three Roman nuns? I didn't think Italians knew the first thing about baseball.
