I went through the cupboard the other day and I've found that I accumulated several items from the various local teams and ballparks. Yes, I'm one of those who saves those 'souvenir' mugs and glasses. Not that they have any great value, but they're a good size to drink from if you want something that will last half a day.
I'd bet any of you who frequent local sports venues have a stack of these stashed away somewhere.
Got one from the local nines, the River Bandits, emblazoned with the logo of Modern Woodmen Park and the team logo and mascot, Rascal the Raccoon.
Yes, that's a can of WD-40 on the left. It works perfectly as a non-caloric cooking spray.
A glass from the Peoria Chiefs. This has been around a while-I don't think I've been to O'Brien Field since 2005.
I may have to work on collecting glasses from every team in the Midwest League. That'd be a noble goal, wouldn't it? Sure it would!
A Cubs cup from two or three years ago. Although its volume is about 2/3 the size of the first two, that Major League beverage probably cost $2-$3 more. Go figure.
Finally, the travel mug available at the refreshment stands at Soldier Field. When on the Chicago lakefront during the fall and winter, a lot of hot chocolate gets sold in these mugs at the Bears games.
Anyone else got some glasses from their local teams?
