Illinois' 200th, 20 Sporting Events-- Part 9: Da Bears Training and Crosstown Double Headers
16. CHICAGO BEARS TRAINING CAMP, Olivet Nazarene University, Bourbonnais
A sixty mile trip south of Chicago to watch da Bears train for a few weeks before the start of the football season. Free tickets. Lots of family activities, and, of course, Bear warching. But, sadly, no more sulking Jays anymore.
17. CROSSTOWN DOUBLEHEADERS, Wrigley Field and Comiskey Park (I don't call it by the other name), Chicago.
Usually at least once during the season, there is a Cubs home day game and a White Sox night game, or vice versa.
See the one play then the other. Liz and I have done this several times.
One time we did this with the Cubs in the afternoon then drove to Milwaukee for the Sox game versus the Brewers.
Hey, with the interleague play in MLB now, the two teams play each other in-town for two series, one at Wrigley and one at Comiskey. As a matter of fact, they just had one this past weekend.
