Sports Are Much Better In Person

I am a big fan of sports. I watch them all of the time. I definitely prefer seeing them live in person instead of just on TV. There is something about being at the stadium or arena. The atmosphere is really cool. I follow all of the Chicago teams and I try to go see them all at least once a year.

Minor League Sports Are So Much Fun

Do not get me wrong, I love going to see all the major teams like the Bears but for an overall fun family night out, minor league sports rule. Plus, it is a lot cheaper. In the minors, of course, the product on the field is important but there is a lot more involved. It is all about the show and the whole experience. There are a bunch of other activities and promotions going on too. They are usually outrageous and entertaining.
