Tonight, Carol & I went to the Schaumburg Flyers game with a whole bunch of "Penalty Box Police" friends from the Chicago Wolves games. We did this last year and had a good time.

It's not Minor League baseball - the Flyers are in the independent Northern League. Just like last year, the Flyers played the Joliet Jackhammers again. The game started slow - 3 innings in an hour. We were on the first base side and we could see lightning out in the distance to the north all during the game. Finally, in the 6th, it started to rain. You know that I just don't leave games, but tonight we did. I just wasn't into it. I was listening to the Sox-Royals game on the radio (I brought a color LCD TV with and watched a few innings, but with it being on a UHF station (26) and being far from downtown, the signal wasn't the greatest), and couldn't handle some of the bad fielding, pitching, running and hitting that I saw. I didn't feel too bad leaving early - we'll be here again in two weeks for Carol's company outing. We left when the Flyers were ahead 5-3. They went on to win 8-3.

Went to that Schaumburg Flyers game tonight with Carol's company. After this afternoon, I didn't expect to have a good time, but I did. My absolute best memories of when I was a kid was going to White Sox games with my dad. So sitting in a ballpark tonight was way more therapeutic than I thought.
They didn't start on the Tollway construction yet. They were putting out barrels along the inside shoulder, but that's about it. Traffic was normal inbound & outbound during my daily trip to the parents and taking Dad to Radiation Therapy at Loyola. The waiting room was really crowded - overflowing out into the hall. Things just felt slower. So did Dad - he's just slowing down. I think the radiation is getting to him. Hopefully he'll tough it out.
