Unable to miss work on Friday, I opted to snag tickets to game #2 of the season. The baseball gods clearly agreed because that's the only game of the series against the Pittsburgh Pirates the Cubbies won. A noon start - weather.com told us it would be 51* with 20% of rain. At 11:40, it started raining/drizzling, which made no sense, since the weather radar map showed nary a cloud. The best part was the crowd cheered every time the sun came out and Lord knows, we needed something to cheer about.
Then the bottom of the 8th inning happened: the Cubbies rallied and score 5 runs. It felt like late September in the Friendly Confines.
Of course a Cubs' victory only means one thing:
Go Cubs Go.

Gosh, I just love baseball.
