    We moved our baseball game to Wednesday night to avoid panel conflict on Sat. We paid $50 for decent seats and it’s still the Cubs at Wrigley

    We’ll have to plan for a pic when it gets closer to the game!

    @star_wars_is_good: Hah! You're on your own with that. Just don't off anybody when you finish the job.

    I was actually thinking of joining up with that Flying Solo group for the game, was going to see if you might be interested as well. But since you'll be robbing @Padme501st, maybe not.

    I was relying on you to be the bus driver!

    Me and the group I'm going with are sticking with Saturday's game. I'm betting on that Saturday will have a focus on animation, and that's not really my big interest.

    Little does @star_wars_is_good know that I’ll be wearing it underneath my 501st racing shirt at the game for safekeeping

    The more I thought about getting there on Wed, the more I realized there wasn't a whole lot to do, which is why I thought of going to the game instead of sitting at my hotel waiting impatiently for Celebration to start. So that would be a good time for it since it seems like a lot of us are figuring the same thing.

    But doesn't that basically mean you'll miss the entire day at Celebration?

    I know I'm going to sound lame, but...

    1) I'm driving into Chicago, so I'm not sure what time I'll get in Wednesday.

    2) I'm going to want to take it easy Wednesday night with the long week and the potential for overnights ahead

    Don’t think that will let me lower my guard around the VIP pass

    What if I had plans for dinner with Hayden on Wednesday and he said I could bring a friend?

    3PO - Sir, the possibility of successfully having Haydn for dinner is approximately 3,720 to 1...

    Game is at 1, runs about 3 hours, and Wrigley's about a 15 min drive from McCormick. Very possible to pop in during the morning or evening or both!
