Barn Owl (fantasy Baseball manager) picked me up at O'Hare and gave me a four-hour tour of Chicago:

I liked Miller Park.  The roof was open the entire five hours we were there.  And I liked the Brewer fans.  The attendance was only around 20,000 (mainly due to the Brewers' disastrous season), but the fans who did show up seemed to be having a good time.  There were dozens of tailgate parties in the parking lots when we arrived and when we left.

Final statistics:
Brewers 9, Reds 6
Air fare $5
Parking $15
Hotel $67
A day with Barn Owl?  Priceless
