2016 BASEBALL SEASON


COMING TOGETHER in the desert
by Mary Romano

It's very possible that the Chicago CUBS will win the 2016 World Series. So much so, that

Fox Sports is listing them as a 6 to 1 odds favorite. Could "wait till next year" actually be
THIS YEAR? A pivotal moment in Chicago's sports history could be upon us. Which got
me thinking. Is the City of Chicago ready? Are the citizens of the tri-state area ready?
Are WE (former Chicagoans) ready? How will we act/react to this emotional year of
baseball? Growing up Chicagoan, we were all given the same a road map. From the time
we were kids, our parents taught us: you're a North Sider, a South Sider or Suburbanite.
Then comes you're a CUBS fan or
WHITE SOX fan...and never shall
the two come together or agree on
anything! We did the same thing
when our kids and grand kids
were born. Yes, we are a proud
people passing along our favorite sports teams. But along with
our Chicago passions for baseball,
football, hockey, basketball etc. we
also passed along the rivalry and
Crosstown Classic Event at LaPiazza L to R: Jil-Marie
Bochers, Donna Augustine, Derek Delp, Igs Sessa, Joey
division. Even as adults, I witSiganore, Michele Roberts, Mary Romano & Jessica Robles ness this everyday on our FaceBook
page. There is ALWAYS a Cub fan who just has to make a snide comment on a White
Sox post...and vise vera! Look, now that we are former Chicagoans living in the warm
and sunny desert, let's begin to change the roads on the map when it comes to baseball?
First we'll start with the desire to meet other people from home. Sometimes, we miss
home so much that it really doesn't matter if that person in the grocery store wearing
a Sox or Cubs jersey is from Palos Hills, Morgan Park, Rogers Park or Glenview. We
want to talk to someone from "home"! And that my friends, is how we, at Chicagoans
In The Desert run our community. CITD works diligently bringing our community together with our events. There should be NOTHING that divides us...in the desert. This is
a WIN for our home city! This is an opportunity to be teaching our kids to drop the hate
and honor the athletic ability of the players on the team. For the love of God...we have
Kris Bryant...a native Las Vegan! Secondly, former Chicagoan Cub AND White Sox fans
love the same things! Deep dish pizza, beefs and hot dogs. So when you walk into Amore!
Taste of Chicago, Windy City Beefs N Dogs, Brando's Sports Bar, Capo's Restaurant
& Speakeasy, Omelet House Summerlin, Papa Pinny's Pizzeria, Sonio's Cafe or Windy
City Beefs N Pizza and you see a fan, say hello. Mention our community. Make a new
friend. That's the beauty of it! THE LINK TO ATTEND THE APRIL 1ST, 2016 CUBS
VS METS GAME AT CASHMAN FIELD IS SENT TO OFFICIAL SOCIAL MEMBERS...JOIN CITD TODAY!!

THEFT PROTECTION

Friends, as you may have

heard Las Vegas has experienced a huge spike in


home robberies. According to television reports,
the robbers are watching
the home to determine if
someone is there. And they don't appear to care about cameras. Please be diligent in making sure that you lock up your
home as you leave for the day. Leave some lights on and use
timers on the lights and televisions while away, so that it looks
like somebody is home. Talk to your neighbors. Watch out for
each other! There are things you can do now to protect your
valuables. First, take a moment to review your Homeowners or
Renters insurance policies to make sure that the coverages are
at the correct levels for what you need. While it is not required,
it is always a good idea to take an inventory, even photos and/
or video, of your belongings so that youll help to expedite the
claims process should something happen. Feel free to contact me
for a free review of your current insurance policies.
