    If not for the bad storms in Houston last year; they were giving away jerseys to the game I was supposed to go to.

    I thought Chae was being sarcastic. Jersey giveaways have been around forever.

    I was not. To be clear, teams actually give away free jerseys for the first 10k or whatever fans? Not some raffle bullshit where 5 fans win a jersey

    I'm surprised the Sox don't do this. I bet any jersey giveaway game draws a crowd

    The SOX have done them for kids in the past, this is the 1st I recall for adults though.

    I used to get all of my Sox shit this way. We'd scan the schedule for the promotional jersey, hat, and bat days, then buy a ticket that probably cost less than the item they were giving away and hope that the sponsor logo wasn't too obnoxious.

    Didn't try to get OD tickets yet. Am I fucked/relegated to deuce and mo status of tailgate only?


    That's half in jest.

    Jersey giveaways in the past were for 13 and under I believe. I remember getting one in 2006 because I just held my hand out and the guy gave it to me. I was 16. Gave it to my sister because it actually fit her.

    Project Mayhem.


    I like getting statues and bobble heads so I try to go to those games.

    Non-attendance day for students. Bullshit self directed "professional development" day.

    For a moment I freaked out because this is the first time that OD doesn't fall during spring break in CPS over the past few years. Good thing the union has my back this year.

    School will be closed OD because the CTU will go on strike.
    I remember going to a 13-and-under giveaway when I was 12. The item was being handed out by a group of 18-21 YO girls who essentially flirted with me for 5 minutes, joking that they weren't going to give it to me because I "looked older."

    It was pretty hot at the time, but probably wouldn't have gone over very well if the genders were reversed.

    The jerseys I have seen teams give away are not even close to the quality of even the cheapest ones they sell at the stadium or online. The Twins had one like a week before I was at a game so a ton of people had them on. It was really a polyester shirt with a Pepsi ad on one sleeve.

    With Zoso, that A's jersey is cool.

    In general, the giveaway jerseys are shit. My uncle has a couple from the 70s from Wrigley that look ok in the front but the back has a giant TOYOTA logo across it. No way in fuck anyone would ever wear this in public. I don't even like the giveaway hats with the LITE logo on the back. If I need a hat, I'll just spend 25 bucks and buy a real one.

    First shuttle leaves at 1:30pm supposedly, so I guess you could still hang out at the tailgate.

    If you like to hang out for like an hour, sure. I was in the lot at 11 last year.

    Sold my Opening Day tickets last night on Stub Hub for 100 bucks each. I probably should have put them out for more. Also had a season ticket gathering last night won a Konerko autographed ball and five bucks in Comiskey cash.

    Didn't make it to half the games last year on the ballpark pass and that was when I lived not too far from the park. Weeknight games were a real drag most of the time. Teacher tired + shitty weather + games taking three hours. Fuck all that.

    I'll just go when I feel up to it for $7 per instead of feeling obligated to go as much as possible on the pass.

    Just got this in an email:

    http://specials.restaurant.com/deal...cid=25652353&et_rid=1102187960&link=279871518


    The Sunday games are $9.99 +4.50 processing. So $14.49 for a ticket and $25 gift card.

    Restaurant.com is pretty much a scam though. There are so many restrictions and shit.

    Yeah, never understood how restaurant.com's numbers could actually work out for the restaurants participating.

    I like that it's Thursday now. They probably saw that Monday attendance didn't see that big of an increase. Thursdays are a better day to target, a night more young people do things.

    It'll be nice for all non-June and July games, when over half of the lower concourse concession stands are closed.
