    That is a horrible suggestion. The Great American Ball Park dwarfs anything U.S. Cellular Field can offer.
    Reds? Psh...

    Sox win series 2-1.

    Some big country music star is coming to town soon and he has a mullet. You can't come to Indiana and not enjoy a country concert.

    You need to read what I say a little clearer...

    I said ballparks. And it doesn't matter, the Reds are a young and developing team.

    Yeah I know exactly what you said. I think Great American Ballpark looks like a nice stadium, but I'm trying to say that I would rather see the Sox because I'm a fan and I saw he's going to visit Chicago so I made that suggestion.

    Oh well, the Sox and Reds aren't a rivalry. The Reds are one of my top 5 favorites don't get me wrong about me not liking them.

    Butler players normally don't make it into the league, but they are one hell of a NCAA team. A great mid-major program.

    Since Duke is being so difficult.....

    The one and only George Strait will be performing at Verizon Wireless Music Center on July 24th. He is one of the all time great country singers. He's had 52 #1 country hits. All without a mullet, or atleast doesn't rock one currently. He actually just christened the new Dallas Cowboys stadium (I dunno the name), a few days ago.

    I don't know if you're into country music, but Verizon is one of the nations best outdoor music venues. (It was either the last or next to last place Jerry Garcia ever played, then known as DeerCreek. You can find youtube vids showing people tearing down/going over the wooden fence in the back trying to get in without tickets.)

    Anyways.....I will be there in person July 24th, beer in hand to watch Mr. Strait perform and I will have one hell of a time, I'm sure of that.

    EDIT: The weather is fine for the most part. Hot and humid in the midwest. Hot and not so humid farther south. Might run into a few thunderstorms, but June-July is usually the best part of the summer IMHO.

    I didn't realize that was George Strait. I'm sure it will be a great show.

    You can hit up Mass Ave for cool shops and great restaurants/bars. Bazbeux Pizza is great.

    Also, you can check out Crackers Comedy Club downtown or in Broad Ripple.

    They can really be a powerful team in the NL Central.

    nice information. i know for sure that while traveling around the god blessed mother nature of the states, you have to listen to the country music. though i only know few of the musicians. John Denver(Country Roads! i could picture me traveling listening to this song), Kris Kristofferson(Silver Tongued Devil and I) and recent add to my ipod was Ray LaMontagne(his album is great). i know the old country singers because of my father and we also listened to them when we traveled around in the states when i was young. i don't know musicians above
    would represent the taste i have for the country music, i do like them very much.(oh, i also added Johnny Cash's The man comes around after i watched the Dawn of the Dead. not a pleasant one to hear though)

    i'll hear some of the strait's music and talk with my friend and let you know if i'll go there. (i checked the tickets and the only tickets left are 'Lawn'

    thanks for the weather information. i was worried if there could be a big storm or tornado.

    Man, that's some old stuff right there. Denver, Cash, KK, and Mont haven't put out a record for quite some time. Johnny did do a remake of 'Hurt' right before he died, but that's still been 6+yrs ago.

    Strait is a country legend, I have no doubt you would enjoy is work.

    Also, lawn seats are the best place to be. You aren't confined to just your seat. I've never gotten any tickets other than lawn, and never plan too. I have been to many indoor venues to see shows, and they just don't compare to the atmosphere that is in the lawn and Verizon.

    They're the cheapest, and the best in the house. They have huge flatscreens set up around the concourse, that are zoomed in on the singers, so you really don't miss anything visually either.

    History???
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Isn't the observation deck closed?

    http://visitindy.com/indianapolis/we...17473:showhide

    There will be a temporary closure of the observation level of the Indiana Soldiers and Sailors Monument to allow for needed upgrades and repairs. The closure of the observation level will begin Monday, April 6, 2009. The observation level is expected to re-open at the end of September.
