Poll: LOHO Get-Together

Thumbnail image for simpsons.jpg

As the day for buying single season tickets draws near, it's time to get serious about this year's LOHO get-together. In the past, we've simply picked a game and had everyone buy bleacher tickets, met up at Murphy's beforehand, and then all gone over to the bleachers to sit together. And sometimes two LOHO readers do the most awesome version of the National Anthem EVER. And sometimes we construct elaborate ball-retrieval systems from chewing gum and hot dog carriers, successfully retrieving a homerun ball from the junipers in center field. And then sometimes we go out afterwards. And sometimes horrible things happen that cause me not to be able to get out of bed the next day. But I digress.

This year, I'm adding another option to the poll: a rooftop game.  Rather than paying for a bleacher ticket, beer, food, etc., we would just pick a game and pay one price for admission, food, and drinks. It would probably wind up being cheaper than actually being at Wrigley.

Follow me below the jump to vote.

Here are the dates and prices listed by one of the rooftops, as an example:

75 dollar dates are
april  14,15,18,26-29
may 2, 10-12
 
100 dollar dates are
april 30
may 1,25-27
 
125 dollar dates are
may 14
august 30,31
sept 5-8,21-23,26
 
SPECIAL PRICES   HOME OPENER ON BRIXEN IVY AS SKYBOX IS SOLD OUT IS JUST 135 PER PERSON
 
FOURTH OF JULY SERIES, JULY 2-5TH REDS, ANY GAME JUST 99 DOLLARS

With that in mind, let's vote:

Let's play two: an inside-the-park June date, and another rooftop date.

Just let me know the date. It will be a 6 hour drive, but it would be worth it. Are junior LOHO readers allowed to attend?

How junior? We usually start at a bar, and I'm not sure the bleachers is the best case to take minors. LOL

I agree a March date would be great. How about March 12 & 13 in Vegas? ChicagoNOw would pick up the costs, right? What if we all promised to comment a lot and therefore make it the best blog site ever?

I thought this already WAS the best blog site ever?

Not according to those who value a site's worth by number of comments.

JulieDiCaro said:

Oh right. Or by which sportswriters "approve" of them.

Since we are starting at a bar, they are waaay to junior. I don't want to scar my kids. I've already caused them enough trauma by making them lil cubbies.

All I ask is that we don't sit so close to Al this year. It was a little creepy last year.

I want to sit in RF so I can throw things at Marlon Byrd.
