I think us Illinoisans should start harassing Wrigley to do the same! Im suggesting Wrigley instead of Comiskey because Im imagining there might be more knitters on the North side…we could always harass BOTH!
This reminds me of a funny story…did everyone roll their eyes and leave the room? Okay…here it goes:
My Exec Director (Dennis, my boss) and Director of Development (Kevin) are like big brothers to me. Not in a “constanly-watched-and-communicated-with-through-my-television” kind of way…more like a “c’mon-kid-let’s-go-down-to-the-creek-and-catch-frogs-together” way. They are both big baseball fans, and were DISGUSTED that I know nothing about baseball and hadnt been to a game since high school.
SO - Dennis and I took Kevin to a White Sox game for his birthday. We had total nose-bleed seats, I mean in the VERY LAST row…there was a WALL behind our seats. BUT, they were on the first base line, so we could still see everything.
I sat in between them, and they started infusing me with all kinds of baseball jargon, lingo and general vocabulary. I tried to be a good student! REALLY I did! My boss even bought me an ice cream! :mrgreen:
It wasnt long before I noticed there were several American Kestrels (“Sparrow Hawks”) flying around the open top of Comiskey. Kestrels are BEAUTIFUL small falcons. SO, I excitedly pointed this out to my friends!
The LOOK that I got! :?eyebrow: :? And, if you can imagine Tom Hanks from “A League of Their Own”…

I shut up about the Kestrels and watched the game. :shifty:
