A week or so of sporting events is on the agenda for me starting tonight on the south-side of Chicago. I have tickets to see the Chicago White Sox
host the Los Angeles Angels
in a crucial game if the 'world champions' are to extend their season into the play-off's. Sox have lost 7 of their last 9 home games and tonight begins a run of 11 consecutive games in Chicago.
I will be back there on Thursday as a guest to greet the team everyone outside of the Bronx loves to hate, the New York Yankees
. The Yankees have the largest professional baseball payroll in the country
, a sick $194m, and lead the Eastern Division of the American League
. Interestingly the 14th highest payers, Detroit Tigers
, are by far the best team in the country at the moment. Wouldn't it be refreshing if the Premiership was like that?
On Wednesday I will be at Arlington Park
race track to watch the gees gees and probably lose a bit of weight in the wallet area. And then in a wonderful lesson of how to throw good money after bad I am back there on Saturday to watch one of the countries premier races The Arlington Million
Tis is the season for jollies, so I wrap up next Tuesday with a day at the PGA Championship
, which is about 30 miles west of here.
Right, back to my expenses....
