    The wife and I are venturing south to take in a White Sox game on April 26. I'd rather not pay $20-something to park at the stadium. Any suggestions on a good place to park and walk or park and ride the train? We'd be coming into Chicago from Rockford.

    If it matters, the game is on a Sunday afternoon.

    Thanks for any help

    You could take the subway train thingy.

    That would be the el. And I definitely recommend it. One station is right on the Cumberland exit of I90. It's just after the 294 exit. That's on the north side though, so it would be a long el trip, but I think the parking's free and it's right on your route. Some other el stations have parking so you can look for another one closer to the park. Taking the el is also nice because you can get some dinner in the city on the way out.

    What Jake and Elwood said. Although parking is $4 for 12 hours. It's an easy in and out traffic wise.

    Buy the one day fun pass for $5.75, and you can go anywhere in the city after the game, too. Using buses sometimes can cut down a long train ride.

    You're definitely going to want to update your tetnus shots before you go.

    Don't you need a passport as well?

    Good parking can be found west of the stadium for $5-10.

    Easiest in/out, IMO, is to take the Stevenson Expressway (I-55) into Chicago. Take one of the last exits before the Dan Ryan/Kennedy merge and go a few blocks south to 35th Street, then cruise toward the stadium. You'll pass by lots of good eats along the way.

    Have a good time at the game, and Go Sox!

    I have heard that the White Sox do provide complimentary oxygen tanks now for those seated in the upper deck.

    Make sure to get a fanny pack for your meth and other valuables.

    Also, there is a two tattoo minimum required for admission. And at least one must be above the neck.
