My husband once thought it would be fun to take his full-term pregnant wife to a White Sox baseball game. It was 90 degrees outside. The game went into extra innings. Worried White Sox staffers checked on me repeatedly, convinced I was about to deliver right there on the upper deck.
I had a ball.
Subsequent to that day, Joe and I began shuttling our kids to White Sox baseball while still in their newborn carriers. We were those parents you see mixing formula bottles and changing diapers between innings. Indoctrination, we knew, needed to start young. While writing this, my son Jack just ran in to tell me the first two Sox batters got triples and the third batter got a double, Sox up 2.
I'd say mission accomplished.
Some of my favorite days have been spent at The Cell with my boys.
|I think my husband was burping Joey here which is why they aren't in the picture.
Some of my other favorite days have been spent at The Cell without my boys.
One visit involved my sister and a mutual friend. A few innings (and beers) into the game, you would have found three harried housewives frantically waving around their homemade sign:
OUR HUSBANDS THINK WE ARE AT A PTA MEETING.
Totally made it on the scoreboard.

The White Sox organization has never let my family or my friends down in providing a great time, great food, and great fun.
They are also the only baseball team in Chicago who has won a World Series in the last 100 years.
Sorry. Couldn't help it.
