March 31, 2008
It’s Opening Day at Wrigley Field. I am a Cubs fan — ever-suffering, ever-loyal. Okay, I have an occasional affair with the San Francisco Giants, but I am allowed because I was born in a beautiful town that has no Major League baseball team. Anyway, I am a Cubbie. I still contend that there is no better baseball experience than the bleachers at Wrigley and I have been to some great parks. Yes, Red Sox fans, even better than Fenway (though Fenway is a close 2nd).
In 1908, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. It’s 2008, I have a newborn son who’s sleeping on my chest (hopefully, he will be awake for the 7th inning stretch) while I watch WGN and I am a big fan of serendipity.
Take me out to the ballgame!
