I became a White Sox fan
Did not purchase the Cubs ticket package,
Instead, I purchased my first MLB Season Tickets
with the White Sox
We were there during the Season when the Cubs won the World Series
When your team is winning, it is such a delight to be a fan
Last year it ticket prices increased, my ticket agent didn’t answer the phone and the seats were not so good
This year, they asked for a $200 deposit for priority ordering
(I don’t remember them saying that it was not refundable)
They gave me one day notice to order priority tickets from some of the least desirable games.
These games tended to be early in the season, late in the season or concentrated around an undesirable series.
That’s how they treated a loyal fan
So, I became a White Sox fan
Rick Renteria managed the Cubs, before they hired Joe Maddon
It is a Bear Market for White Sox tickets
And I am dipping my toe in the pool or Season Ticket Ownership
I can not imagine attending 81 games
I like the idea of being a White Sox Fans.
They aren’t the national or down state fans on a pilgrimage to a Cubs game
We laughed at fans in the outfield, who we guessed had arrived with female escorts
but purely Chicago
(Barack is not a Cubs fan)
If they bring it around . . .
