My absolute favorite day of the year.
Went to my first one in 1984 when I was in college at Loyola and have made every one since. My bother has been with me at every one since the last year of Old Comiskey - 1990.
I enjoy the excitement of a new season, better weather ahead etc. It is a rite of spring no matter what happened the year before.
