Ive gone on record before, saying how much I HATE IT UP THERE.
Way to far away from the action, hard to see the players and the
little white ball they play with. But last nite, during the national anthem, was the ONE TIME i'll say I was glad I was up there.
Sitting on the 1B side....with a clear view of Lake Michigan and Indiana from way high up there, I saw coming from the SouthEast, 6 US Navy Thunderbird jets......man, the anticipation
as they began roaring towards us, buzzing all the houses
in South Chicago and Hyde Park......... breathtaking...

Can you imagine what it might have been like if they had come in SUPERSONIC? With AFTERBURNERS GLOWING WHITE HOT?

That was probably my favorite moment of the night as well. Just seeing those jets in the background with the biggest American Flag I have even seen draped across the outfield and then the jets 'buzzing the tower' was quite a sight to see.

I was shocked that they were not letting people from the upper deck go down onto the concourse to walk around. I didn't really care as I have been there plenty of times before, but for someone who may have come from out of town and wanted to see the whole park and couldn't, was wrong. And looking down at the concourse during the game, it was dead. You could have drove a Mack truck through there.

I agree, that was awesome; I was on the 3B side, and I could see the jets coming in from Indiana right toward me. It made sitting 7 rows from the top a little more tolerable.

The flyover was way cool. I'll have pictures posted later today on my picture site.

And as for the lower deck..thanks to a little ingenuity, I got to watch BP from the 5th row of section 113 in spite of my upper deck seats...
