When rooting for the Kansas City T-Bones
, a little creative jeering can add beaucoup excitement to your Northern League experience. Take, for instance, the Joliet Jackhammers
, who play the T-Bones tonight. When the Jackhammers take the field, consider a chant of Wheres the bacon? (Clap! Clap! Clap-clap-clap!
) in honor of Kevin Bacon, who filmed parts of Stir of Echoes in the Chicago exurb. Sing a round of All Night Long (All Night) for notable Joliet native Lionel Richie, or Jail House Blues as an ode to the Joliet Prison. You might not sabotage their game, but youll sure amuse your neighbors. If not, you can always buy them a round of $1 hot dogs in honor of hot-doggin drummer and Joliet resident Jimmy Chamberlin. Or you can simply marvel at the big bat of beefy Royals alum Calvin Pickering and the hustle of scrappy athletes playing for passion and peanuts. Tickets start at $8.50 for tonights brouhaha at CommunityAmerica Ballpark (1800 Village West Parkway, Kansas City, Kansas, 913-328-2255). Dont fret if it looks like rain its free-umbrella night.
