SoxvsAs

White Sox 3, A’s 5

A friend of mine in the video business has season tickets for the Sox so whenever we get to work together we have a lot to talk about. Well, two weeks ago, he asked me if I wanted to join him and a few friends for a night at The Cell. You don’t have to ask me twice!

I met up with my friend at his condo in the South Loop. Check out his view! You can actually see The Cell from his balcony.

That’s it in the right hand corner. After eating steaks and potatoes (guy’s night out, huh?), we drove over to the ballpark. This was the first time I had experienced the parking lot of the stadium. For some reason, it looks strange to see tailgating at a baseball game. The game itself was a bit rough.

After a successful road trip (5 – 1), the Sox started a long home stand that was… well, let’s be honest, horrendous. Out of twelve games at The Cell, the Sox only came away with four wins. Forget about home advantage! That evening the Sox lost another one against a pitcher they hadn’t faced before. After the loss, the Sox were 6-1 against such pitchers. Ugh. Oh, and did I mention it was cold?

Yep, 47 degrees! Ah, a summer night at the ballpark.

Still, it was a lot of fun hanging out with the guys. And we did see an amazing line drive homer from Jermaine Dye. Check out the guys having a good time here.
