I have heard from other people in that part of the world (people from Chicago and Wisconsin) that the overall picture of a White Sox fan is of a rough type of person who has seen their fair share of bar fights. I have been told that you do not feel safe around U.S. Cellular Field, nor do you feel safe inside U.S. Cellular Field. Of course most of us remember the father-son tag-team that attacked the Royals 1st-base-coach. And months later another Sox fan attacked the 1st-base-umpire. Cannot readily recall this happening too many times in my life... let alone at the same stadium.
Just wonderin' if anyone else has heard the same?
It has been a while but I have been to US Cellular about 5 times and yes the surrounding area is pretty rough. However you really don't have the bar or fan friendly type atmosphere there like you do at Wrigley. You pretty much drive through slums and then an area they call "China Town", park and go to the game. There are really no pregame or past game activities.
Other then the horribly slanted upper deck where you feel like you are going to fall backwards walking up the stairs, I tend to like the stadium.
