Baseball, BASEBALL

It’s a transition year.

I’ve said it before.  As a matter of fact, I’ve said it enough times that I actually think it’s unintentionally becoming my mantra.

But you guys know I love the Cubs, and regardless of our less-than-perfect record (and the promise of plenty more losses to come this season…I’m a realist, I won’t deny that fact) I will still go to as many games as humanly possible.

Especially when this one hooks us up with seats that can be accessed through this tunnel:

Oh, no big deal. The seats weren’t THAT close.

Oh, wait. Yes they were.

When we walked up to take our seats I almost peed myself. THIRD ROW.

For a diehard Cubs fan like me who doesn’t have a lot of disposable income to devote to tickets, this was almost as good as Christmas morning.  So thank you, Molly.

The insanely rainy weather Chicago has been having over the last week or so even dispersed for a few innings and warmed things up at the field.  If you know Wrigley, you know that the field temp (without any sun) almost always feels a good 5-10° colder than anywhere else.  So the sun helped.

And the Cubs won!

And I got a hot dog!

As if there was any doubt.

Oh, and by the way, if you let your friends look at the photos on your camera and you are a food blogger and have recently photographed your hand holding a hot dog, your friends will absolutely think that you’re weird.

And maybe even a little pervy.

The things I do to document my life, I tell ya.

  1. First of all, your last comment made me laugh out loud. Before everyone in my life knew I was a food blogger, I’d go out with friends, take pictures and then they’d go to play them back on the camera and say, “Why do you have a picture of an egg?”

    But the hot dog just makes me giggle. Still am as I type this, actually. 🙂

    Secondly, I love your devotion to the Cubs. I know that feeling of being with a team through thick and thin (ah, Packers) and am glad you got such good seats thanks to Molly!

  2. Those seats are awesome. I don’t love baseball, but even I would have been excited about that. And the hot dog, of course.

  3. I’m jealous. I’d love to see the Dodgers plays the Cubs in Chicago. I’d actually love to just go to Wrigley, but it’s never worked out during a summer/spring trip.

    Also, the Cubs sure have had a lot transition years lately. I kid…

  4. Um those seats are amazing. How tempted were you to smack one of their asses?
    Brandon and I got offered tix to the Phil’s game last night but sadly had to decline. (Good thing bc there’s nothing worse than a 2 hour drive home after a loss.) Glad you had such a great time!

  5. I am so happy we got to actually stay for the whole game – unlike Opening Day. Why didn’t you get a picture of your boyfriend Mather’s butt? Or did you and you’re keeping that one all to yourself? Don’t be selfish! 🙂

  6. Happy to oblige! And I’m glad we got to actually stay for the whole game – unlike Opening Day. Why didn’t you get a picture of your boyfriend Mather’s butt? Or did you and you’re keeping that one all to yourself? Don’t be selfish! 🙂
