Rays at White Sox GDT 1: Sweet home Chicago

USA TODAY Sports

Blues music!

So, despite the popularity of this song with Chicago, IL, I'm pretty sure Robert Johnson is singing about Chicago, CA.

Up until last fall, I lived about 10 blocks from the White Sox stadium, down in the Bridgeport neighborhood. I really love Chicago. And I really like the Bridgeport neighborhood. I miss it.

But I don't miss the weather. It's in the mid-70s here on the panhandle. Tonight's game is going to be in the 50s. My friends were recently shoveling snow. No thanks.

Moreover, White Sox fans. Eh. I got to see Dan Johnson's 9th inning dinger in 2011, that late-inning homer that snapped the 0-6 start. First win of the season. I was there.

But you'd think we'd shoved someone from the upper deck by the way we got booed leaving the stadium. I knew the White Sox roster better than the bros sitting behind me, but on the merit of Dan Johnson's heroics, suddenly I'm a second-class citizen. Whatever.

Side note: Chicago is the most racist city I've ever been to.
