What a great day for baseball. I don’t remember being able to attend a game that was that nice in April. With the wind blowing out, I was SURE it was going to be a great Cubs day. Well, it was exciting, but so far this season I’m 0-3 for games I’ve attended. I’m hoping for better luck tomorrow (Tuesday 4/24).
My friend Denise and her son Jake joined us for the game. At the end of last year, Jake knew baseball stats for all the players & teams. When a couple of the guys behind us were wondering how many home runs Cliff Floyd had last year, he was very quick with the (correct) answer. Who needs the internet when you have a 9 year old! Of course, he doesn’t have this year’s stats down yet (I guess that comes after school is out!)
One of my future posts is going to be about the Miller Light sign on the rooftops over right field. They are always very clever and I loved the one for this series. Too bad we didn’t do what the sign suggested.
Putting aside the outcome, it was a great afternoon at Wrigley – a long game, but at least the Cubs started hitting (I’ll ignore the fact that the other team was hitting also).
I’m hoping for much better things tomorrow night against my former team, the Brewers.
