Cross-town Classic Brawl

10:00 am - Wake up. Search Craigslist for tickets to Cubs vs. Sox game.
11:00 am - Give ticket broker credit card number and hope he's telling the truth about your tickets waiting at will call.
11:30 am - Head to the Red Line to catch a train down to the south side for the 12:20 game time.
12:30 - Walk into the game in the bottom of 2nd inning. Grab a beer and rush to your seats in the upper deck.
12:35 - Turn around in the aisle as you're walking to your seats because there is going to be a play at the plate. Sox score the first run after a huge collision!
12:36 - Enjoy watching A.J. Pierzynski get jacked in the face and the bench clearing brawl that follows!
1 - 3pm - Be glad that you got to witness a clash between the blue collar, Bon Jovi loving, South Side representing Chicago White Sox and the yuppie, Bartman hating, goat cursed, North Side representing Chicago Cubs!


  1. Priceless! That's a sweet pic too. If I don't like Bon Jovi, does that automatically make me a cubs fan?

  2. Yes. Unless you like Warrant or REO Speedwagon. That would also make you a Sox fan.

  3. Nate Dogg! How's life? You could probably add Journey and ACDC to that list - and Konerko comes out to Harvester.. two side notes:

    1. AJ took it square in the jaw, and *didn't go down* (not to mention that he hit Barrett a heckuva lot harder than Barrett hit him)

    2. The Sox are to be referred to as: "The World Champion Chicago White Sox" or (where appropriate) "Your World Champion Chicago White Sox"

    Don't stop rockin.

  4. Pat, you are a White Sox fan, not a cubbie correct? Nate, how the hell are you?
