Chicago Sports Spring 2008

With the Bulls and Blackhawks not in the playoffs, everyone is excited about the upcoming baseball season. As I write this both the White Sox and Cubs are in first place. Not a surprising start for the Cubs by the start of the White Sox is a pleasant surprise.

I went to the White Sox opener and tailgated in the parking lot. They won the game on Joe Crede’s grand slam. I also went to the Yankees game in Chicago with an ardent Yankees fan.

The White Sox erected a monument outside the front gate to the 2005 World Series Champions. My mother bought me a brick for Christmas that will be part of it with the inscription “2005 White Sox, Dreams Come True, Frank Ochal”. Look for it when you go to the park.
