Play Ball! and wear your woolies
The Cub home opener is traditionally a day to wear wool. It is cold out there and the wind is blowing in. Off the Lake. Many years ago, my dad would take us out of school to attend the Cub opener. It was a day for blankets and thermos' full of hot chocolate. Today it is a day to wear my purple wool slippers in the house. A day to watch the game inside and believe that spring will come again.
It is a sell-out crowd. There is never any doubt about the fans. I recommend a day at Wrigley field in the summer if you've never been. It is all about the little park in the big City.
A life of being a Cub fan makes me a more patient knitter.
Always optimistic, knowing more likely than not, I will drop some stitches, even frog a few times. Knowing of course, there's always next project.
Please leave me your email or blog so I can thank you for your comment.
