Maybe Next Year ....Again....





I'm as guilty as they come. I think the Cubs were horrible this year. Disappointing nearly
every darn game,

bunch of bums,

with the exception of a very few,

looked like Little Leaguers most times

with the excuses abounding for 5 months...
and yet......

when friends offered to take us to the last game at Wrigley I went.
Guilty as charged.
I rooted for the Brewers to the shock of the folks who took us to the game.
They aren't really baseball people....
They are guilty too.
Just wanted an afternoon at Wrigley Field on a spectacular fall day.
I will say the Ivy looked thick and lush. It literally waved in the breezes.

I went with the knit goal of working on Zach's hat. I knitted until the 7th inning.
Then a Mai Tai was in order.....

The handsome dude in the winter Cubbie hat was just one of a sea of many hardened fans.

I think Neal Diamond was at the game....doesnt it look like him in the last frame???
Sporting a little stache?

Let's all sing it now: Money talks
but it don't sing and dance
and it don't walk.

....and it don't buy a World Series in Chicago either......

(Donna Booshay, I missed you and thought of you at the game yesterday!)

Don't count on next year. We go to the Cubs minor league games. They were terrible this year too. The best you can do is hope for some good trades.

That DOES look like Neil Diamond. Do you think it really is???

I'm looking forward to Brad Pitt's new baseball movie... not that it will change anything...

What's not to love about the Cubbies, good, bad or otherwise? No matter what I still prefer them to the Rangers!

I've been to Wrigley Field, very fun. I am watching my Rays self destruct, such a bummer. Looks like you had a fun day.

I went through a CubsLove phase when Briton was a baby --- I was home, and their games were on almost daily.

I got over it.
