The Royals road trip to Minneapolis and Chicago did not go well on the field, but we always manage to enjoy our travels. Minneapolis had beautiful September weather, and three Target Field sellout crowds. Chicago is such a great city, no one ever tires of travelling there.
… This is the worlds number one Notre Dame fan, White Sox broadcaster Ed Farmer. Ed lost a bet with Chicago reliever J.J. Putz, a Michigan alum. Ed had to wear Michigan gear Sunday, and walk through the clubhouse for all to see, since Michigan had beaten Notre Dame on the football field.
