Given the state of the Sox now, how many Sox games (home or away) do you plan on attending this year?

Mods, can you add one more choice: "It depends on what moves the Sox make between now and Opening Day."?

Thanks!

Over 20 for me.

All-Star game.

Might go and see Sox at Comerica

Every home game in October :)

I want to break my record of 55 games at Comiskey I set last year. (I'm a season ticketholder so that's not hard). Also plan on seeing them at the Jake, Comerica and the HumpDome.

wish i could get to more but it's tough when you live a ways away, don't really have a car, and don't really have any money or time. I'll probably end up the same as the last few years--their first saturday game in april (day after opening day) and maybe a game in the july and maybe one in detroit.

I was looking at the schedule a couple of weeks ago with some buddies trying to figure out a good weekend this summer to take a roadtrip and try to catch the Sox in 2 or 3 different parks. Anyone else have anything like this planned? Ideally, it would be a central division swing from Detroit to Cleveland or vice versa. I thought it would be cool, if timed right, to catch a game in Cincy too.

Comerica has been ripped in the Detroit press and by their fans. Anyone been there that could offer a description? I'd still rather see a game there than in Minnesota.

Like every year, 1-5. I wish I could go to more but seeing as I'm 15 its hard. It annoys me when people deside to boycot Comiskey just because the Sox make bonehead moves or are losing terribly. We are fans and are supposed to support the team no matter what.

Do not go and see any sporting event at the Rollerdome,that place is a dump.

The way they're looking like playin' now, probably 6-10 (I may try and do that Sox 7 thingy), however, if they start to play well, I could easily see me spending more time and money there. I have a day job this summer, so I'll be able to make it to Comiskey more often than the last two years when I worked primarily at night.

Depends on how long the money holds out! :)

I don't want to waste my money on the Sox if they suck. I'd much rather just save it and bring it back to Peoria next September.

I wish I could see more than just a couple games a year in person. I usually drive the 280 miles twice a summer with a couple buddies, It makes a nice weekend getaway.

Well definately 3, when the Sox play the Dodgers, thank god, I don't have to go to Anaheim, and Dodger Stadium is so much closer to me. Though depending on how the Sox are doing, I may make the trek out to tha O.C.

Well although I live in north Western Michigan now that I have my own car (FINALLY) hopefully I'll get to about 4-5 games this year. I would always go to at least one game with my Dad (cubs/sox last 2 years) but now I have some of that oh so wonderful independence I'll be hopefully heading down quite a bit this year. Although that Dan Ryan is one intimidating monster, It's worth it!

Brian, let's talk about this as the season draws closer...PM me. My girlfriend and I have been talking about taking a week off and doing the same thing.

Comerica is a sweet park. Any seat anywhere is good. Reminds me a lot of Miller Park or Camden Yards with the big overhang over the lower bowl.

You could always use Lake Shore Drive and cut over on 31st st if you hate the Dan Ryan. (or better yet, park the car and take the CTA) How long does it take you to drive from NW Michigan?

about comerica, i think it's pretty stinking nice. i don't know why the press was complaining about it. actually espn rated it as one of their favorites on their tour of stadiums. it would have to be a heck of a lot better place to watch a game than the metrodome.

I answered with the usual "1-5". I'm getting the weekend package from Soxfest and that comes with 4 tickets good for any home game. I usually go to at least one Cubs/Sox game and both my wife and friend want to go on their b-days this year.

Considering my b-day is October 21st, I usually don't hold out much hope for going to a game on my b-day... :(:

1-5, like normal. If I had a little bit more money, and time, I would go a lot more often. I'm dragging a few of my un-sports inclined friends to a game this summer, just they don't know it yet... heh.

- Pete, who might take them to Chewing Gum Park for a Sox game, for added protection.

You might have to go with the NASCAR to get to Comiskey, could be some bumping on the Dan Ryan

I usually hit about 11-20. Last year with the crappy deal with being out of work i was only able to make about 7 games. I'd like to hit 20 if all goes well. I'm a weekend warrior. i never plan it. usually one of my buddy's call me up on friday or saturday morning and ask if i want to go that day or the next day. We're so organized!

Hey thanks for the heads up. My dad always told me it would be my "driving right of passage" to drive on the Dan Ryan so to show him the man that I know I am :D: , I'll prolly take that. Or just take Lake Shore drive and lie to him, eh eiter way I'll be at Comiskey and that'll make him proud either way. :smile:

As far as where I am. I live in Twin Lake (just moved here from Grand Rapids) it would be about a 4-4.5 hour drive I think, not horribly bad.

If I only had a little money in my pocket. I'll most likely be going to around 8 this year like usual. I can't wait till I get that raise then get those oh so valuable season tickets!

Here I come half price mondays and tuesdays!

The Ryan is no big deal,just drive a full size 4WD pickup truck with a 4" lift on it and lean on the horn,people in little cars will get the hell out of your way.

It works twice a day for me anyway........

A 26ft sterling with an air horn carrying 50,000 lbs helps too. :redneck
