Been waaaaayyy too long since we got to see a baseball game. I think it’s been over a year, and that’s just sad. So we drove down to San Diego on Sunday to watch the Padres and Cubs play. Field level seat, $8 beers and all. Such a good time… even if the Cubs did get spanked 6-3.
Desipte that, one of the best things about being a Cubs fan is that, no matter where in the country you go, it seems the Cubs fans at any given game nearly outnumber fans of the home team. You don’t go to see the Astros play, for instance, and notice tons of people decked out in Red… unless you’re in Houston. Not so with the Cubs. Even though they always break your heart. Probably the only team in sports that commands that kind of loyalty without ever winning anything. Gotta love it.
Pano of the field – never been to Petco Park, but it’s actually not a bad place to see a ball game – they tried to make it feel quaint, and mostly succeeded.
My beer, my nuts, my mess, and us looking like big dorks.
