The Friendly Confines
The Cubs Casket - was prominently displayed in the front window of a funeral home we walked by on the way to Wrigley (photo by my buddy KJK)
Returned to the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Chicago still rocks, the Cubs fans still rock, Left Field Bleacher Bums rock and Right Field sucks, and the Cubs...well...the Cubs are being the Cubs right now. There's always next year. It was hot as blazes. Had the best intentions of getting in some SUP time on Lake Michigan (was going to rent a SUP board/paddle from Kayak Chicago at Montrose Beach) but didn't make it out there.
Remember the old SNL skit with Mike Myers and George Wendt playing the Chicago Bears/Mike Ditka loving, sausage eating fanatics? Yeah, we sat next to those guys at the game. Hilarious. Da Bearshs, Da Boollss.
Here's to the Cubs...there is always hope.
