My dad is at the Beverly road cycle race and texted me saying the security guard they have working is wearing a Sox security shirt and is acting like a *******. Obviously it's not 100% that the guy works for the Sox, and you can't hold one guy responsible for the whole organization, but it fits the mold.

I had a good experience with them sitting in the bleachers with them and talking NL East baseball a few years back. But yeah, we all know about Philly fans. I got lucky.

I am in Denver right now. I'll go in greater detail when I get home from Seattle (I don't feel like typing a long review using my iPhone). But, I went to Coors Field Saturday night. It kicks the crap out of Comiskey. I'm planning on emailing Brooks Boyer the differences.

Yep - that was my thoughts too after going out there in 2010 for Sox/Rox.

wish i had your experience. i had a beer taken from in from of me and went to drink by an approximately 16 year old girl who I did not know in front of a cop, harassing beyond a the good nature fun stuff and a girl (100 lbs) punched by a guy after the game on the way to the train (he ran away). I guess they did not like our Sox jerseys.

Gotta say, I think you could find similar things happening at pretty much any park at some time in a season.

Heather, Comiskey has changed a lot since you've last been there.

As for the thread, I saw another thing yesterday that can be improved upon. Guy walks up pushing his friend in a wheelchair and asked to sit behind the last row where they usually allow disabled guests to sit. An usher that was nowhere to be found for the first few innings came out of nowhere and told them they had to go to the box office. The guy had to physically pick his friend up out of the wheelchair and sit him at the very end of the last row, which was precarious at best. A few innings later the usher came back with a wristband and one folding chair. Come on, it's not like the guy was faking it and it wasn't exactly a sellout.

Unbelievable. Then you have the case where you have people sitting in that area that you are almost certain ARE faking it.

I always stand on the concourse and I really think the next thing the Sox need to address is an appropriate seating area for their disabled customers. Yeah it's nice they attempt do what they do, but really, sticking them between the last row of seats and the chain, with a few seats left over from the International Ampitheater isn't much. I swear the chair they brought out yesterday I sat in for a Dick the Bruiser/Ernie the Big Cat Ladd match.

I can make no sense out of this post. I've read it four times.

My boyfriend and I were at yesterday's game and astonished at the fact that the escalators off the ramp near Sec. 536 were inexplicably closed after the game. Because of that idiocy, nearly 28,000 people were forced to take the ramps down to street level, as opposed to spreading the crowd out on the escalators, ramps, and the stairs by Chicago Sports Depot.

One of the perks of the recent renovations to the ballpark are those escalators, so as not to jam the ramps. So, why the hell were they closed?! As far as I can see, there are exactly zero reasons as to why.
