Just curious; what do the faithful of WSI think about 2:05 starts on Sunday??
I know it was done because of construction on the Ryan this year,but I hope that in 2005,the start time at least moves up to 1:35 or 1:45.I'd like to say 1:05,but I know some people go to later Mass services.The 2:05 starts screw up my body clock.My partner and I arrive at the park around 11:00,set up,grill and tailgate for a while.Just when we'd like to go in,the game doesn't start for another hour and a half.Bummer,Brooks.Move up those Sunday start times!!:angry:

They're too late because they kill Sunday afternoons. That one extra hour does wonders.

I like the 2:05 starts, especially late in the season, it gives me a chance to clean either the fish, or birds, that I harvested in the morning before the game starts.

I like the late start. This is the one game time I can count on being at the park before the game starts.

I'm pretty impartial on them since I'm so close to the ballpark, but to me, a 1 PM Sunday start just seems so much more "traditional."

I'd like to say 1:05,but I know some people go to later Mass services.I go to 5pm mass on Sunday evenings usually, so the 2:05 start actually interferes with that. I don't mind the 2:05 starts though.

I usually stay out late on Saturday nights, so it gives me an extra hour of sleep. I like the 2:05 starts. :gulp:

I liked the 1:05 starts better. The traffic seemed worse on the way home after the Sunday games this year. Perhaps that hour makes a difference in that regard.

I'm an early riser so I much preferred the 1:05 starts. The 2:05 starts kill the whole day.

It's nice to know i'm not alone in this category.2:05 starts kill any thought of a Sunday BBQ with my family.By the time i'd get to my relative's house,it could be nearly 7:00.:(: :(:

i know with the whole church bit and all,this might not sound great

but I wish that sunday games in the summer should start at 12:30

and in spring/fall[football season] start at 2:05

As someone who is usually hung over from teh night before and who would probably spontaneously combust if he stepped foot in a house of worship, I say the start time is great....maybe even still too early! :smile:

I remember when I was younger at Old Comickey the Sunday day games started at 1:15. I like the earlier start over the 2:05. I also wouldn't mind if night games started at 7:30 or 8:00 like they use to.

I liked the 1:05 starts better. I enjoy my post-game BBQs and neighbor's margarita pool parites when I get home and now have one less hour to :gulp: before calling it a night.

The later start is for season ticket holders. It's hard going to a day game right after a night game, especially since the night before is fireworks night and lasts longer.

Honestly, I'd prefer a 3:05 start time.
