Doubleheader Day: Columbus Crew at Chicago Fire

13 October 2008 No Comment

In my second sporting event of the day, I attended the Chicago Fire match at Toyota Park yesterday. It was also the second MLS match I have attended this season.

Obtaining Tickets
From the parking lot, I walked to the main box office at Toyota Park. I noticed a man leaving Will Call with more tickets in his hand than people around him. So I asked him if he had extra tickets. He said he did and wanted $10 per ticket. I offered him $20 for 3 tickets (face value was $20 per ticket) and he accepted the offer.

The Game
The Chicago Fire clinched an MLS playoff berth by playing to a 2-2 draw with the Columbus Crew. Brian McBride scored 2 goals and just missed a third when his header shot went over the goal by a few inches in the 83rd minute.

Toyota Park
I made a new discovery at Toyota Park yesterday – the Ice Cream Nachos for $5. My mom mentioned she wanted ice cream at some point during the game, so while walking by BV’s Zone behind section 113, we read “Ice Cream Nachos.” Not sure what this meant, we asked the concessionaire. It was cinnamon chips covered with soft serve ice cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream – by far one of the best desserts I have had at a sporting event. Next time you are at Toyota Park and have an ice cream craving try the Ice Cream Nachos rather than Dippin’ Dots at $4.50.
