My boy, Doug is a die hard Chicago White Sox nutcase...err fan. This was our third trip to Chicago in a span of a year. The first two trips completely revolved around baseball and autograph seeking (see here
). This trip was divided a lot more evenly between the two of us. But of course, I knew a game or two would make its way into the itinerary regardless. Heh!

Doug bought a pair of tickets in the cushy United Scout Seats section, seven rows behind home plate. These tickets included premium reserved parking, all-inclusive Levy Restaurant buffet in a private lounge, access to private United Scout Seat Lounge with flat screen televisions throughout, and most importantly in-seat wait service during the game. Picture it...all the ballpark food at your beck and call. Muhahaha!
During the game my boy had nachos, an Italian Beef sandwich, and a polish sausage. But, I only remembered to take a picture of the nachos. It was a quick snapshot and not very well angled . I was trying to take the picture without the couple next to me noticing. I still get a little embarrassed when people catch me taking pictures of my food.

Around the end of the 5th inning, we went walking around the stadium. Doug got a huge kick out of all the names on the food stalls.

Looking back I think this might have been the funniest baseball game I've been to so far.
To top the night off.... Sox won and a nice fireworks show afterwards.
