    Yeah, I'm not attending a game because of the owner of the team...lol.  I just assume that most of the billionaire owners are Trump supporters...even if they try to deny it, I do not believe them.
    I agree

    It's a pretty easy assumption, considering they are the benefactors from Trump's tax cuts...

    Any athlete not taking the possibility to protest Trump by not showing up sucks.

    Would you boycott a PJ concert in Wrigley because of this?  (side question:  are you insane?)

    do Chicagoites still refer to it as Comiskey?  I do, but every time I call it that I wonder if that's proper given that Comiskey is gone and was actually next to the new park.

    Just curious

    I was wondering same thing and did read it was called Comiskey when it was first opened. So it makes sense and who wants to call it by the sponsers name? I still call Comerica Park Tiger Stadium, lol.

    Exactly. I go to watch the players on the field, enjoy the game of baseball, and check out the eye candy in the stands. Ricketts is a billionaire prick, that’s no secret.  This is why I’ve kinda shifted my views on free agency and big contracts. The more money that goes in the players pockets, the less I am supporting the owner’s pocket. I grew up watching the Cubs and old episodes of Home Run Derby on WGN with my grandfather - the most important man and biggest father figure I had in my life. That’s what Cubs baseball means to me.  Donald Trump holding a convention at Wrigley Field isn't going to change that.

    wiki says that the new park was originally called Comiskey Park until renamed US Cellular Field in 2003.  There we go...

    I still call it Comiskey or US Cellular.  I'm not saying "Guaranteed Rate Field" because that sounds fucking DUUUUUUUUUUUMB!!!  It's the White Sux tho so what do you expect?

    it's like the Sears Tower....no way I'm calling it Willets

    We visited Comiskey last year for a game.  Really cool place.  I loved how they have the home plate and base lines for the old park laid out next door.

    I remember going to the old park, and along one side of the stadium, they had the player's parking in the remnants of the old old Comiskey.

    There's a car wash on Grand Ave that has photos of all the old baseball parks in Chicago.  They used to play at Grant Park, and at the horse race track.  Between the Sox & Cubs they have had something like 8 different ballparks in the city.

    People usually call it “The Cell” or Comiskey.  I’m yet to hear anyone call it G Rate Field, but who the hell knows.  Only time I’ll go there is when they play the Cubs and even then I prefer not to. 
  • Hi!Hi! Posts: 1,054
    Comiskey, I think is just ok. I like the bar they have under right field-stands , level with the playing field. Thought that was pretty cool. Other than that, meh. The pizza they serve in the concessions makes Little Ceasers seem appetizing. The area around the Stadium is pretty lame as well. No night life it seems. Just ride in for the game and ride out.
    Wrigley is way better experience imo. Plus they have plastic helmets filled with nachos.

    I thought new Comiskey was nothing but a concrete jungle filled with lollipops or pinwheels scattered around the outfield. Wrigley is pretty bad ass.

    As long as there isn’t a giant I-beam blocking your view Wrigley is OK ... And you don’t mistake the sinks for urinals.  

    I prefer the newer stadiums for attending games and the old stadiums for watching on TV.  I think Comisky was built just prior to the stadium evolution set by Baltimore’s new (now kinda old) Camden Yards.   
  • mcgruff10mcgruff10 New JerseyPosts: 18,974
    Camden Yards is my favorite but the secret gem out there is PNC in pittsburgh.  Oh my god that stadium is gorgeous (been to 15 stadiums).

    Top 3 Parks I would want to visit:
    1.)Oracle-Love the Bay
    2.)Minute Maid -sad they leveled Tals Hill
    3.)PNC-Love the overhead shots with the river and bridge

    of course Fenway, but that goes without saying.

    I’ve been to 30 MLB parks...includes defunct parks, so I am missing a dozen or so current parks. I missed Tiger Stadium and original Comisky.

    I have a clear top-4...
    1. Fenway.
    2. Wrigley 
    I love these monuments to urban history.  I might prefer a modern park for a home park because of comfort and amenities but I just love these places for a visit.

    3. Pittsburgh.  The skyline view is amazing and the atmosphere around the stadium was better than expected.

    4. San Francisco.  Love the look at the bay.

    Most of the other modern ballparks are nice but hard to distinguish in terms of ranking.

    As for the current White Sox park, it was the last MLB ballpark opened before Camden.  It was functional but sterile.  A number of years ago, the reduced the giant upper deck and replaced the sterile blue seats with darker green.  This remodel was a nice improvement.

    Yeah I still call it The Cell or Comiskey.  Can't see myself ever calling it "The Rate".  The park gets a ton of hate, but has gotten so much better the past few years with all of the improvements that they made.  Fantastic beer and food options as well.  And another great part is I don't have to drop a whole paycheck to take my family to a game...a buddy told me how much it cost him to take his family to a Cubs game recently and it was just absurd.

    To keep thread integrity, it has never been a secret that The Ricketts are huge Trumpsters and highly involved with the RNC so I don't see that having any impact on them playing Wrigley again.

    I remember calling it "New Comiskey" when the new one opened.  It was terrible timing as they went modern with the design and then Camden Yards and Jacobs Field came after it and Comiskey had no soul in it.  I think the improvements they have made to it were great though and a nice place to see a game. 
  • bootlegger10bootlegger10 Posts: 11,551
    Saw the Yankees beat the Red Sox in July 2003 at the old Yankees stadium with my dad and then we hopped the train to get back to Philly to see Pearl Jam that evening.  What an awesome day.

    Fuck those nachos! Took my nephew and he got that. But had them take off everything by the chips and cheese!?!?! WTF, kid??? Could have just bought a clean helmet and regular nachos for cheaper.

    I got extra guacamole in mine. I felt like I really earned that helmet when I was finished.
    I went to opening week in 2014. It was brutal cold and I didn’t dress properly, so I was forced to shell out like $100+ for a blanket and winter hat. I still where the hat in the winter and I’m not even a fan and get shit for it all the time. I don’t care though. I’m getting my motherfucking $50 out of that shit. Most times I just turn it inside out.
