Cubs Are In Town

Baseball is boring but it's all we've got during the dog days of summer. I noticed the Cubs are in town for a very, very rare inter-league appearance. Almost enough to get me interested. Ranger fans (if there are any) have suffered for thirty something years. I think the Cubs have struggled for like sixty years or something like that.

But about 15 years ago I did get to see an afternoon game at Wrigley Field. It was all it was cracked up to be and more. Took the subway from downtown which dropped me right at the stadium, sat in the sun, looked at fans on nearby rooftops, and marveled at the ivy covered outfield walls. Good times.

Edit #1: This picture appeared on the Star-Telegram's front page today. I swear I pulled it out of Google Images before I knew that.

Edit #2: This is the FIRST visit by the Cubs to Arlington. I should have guessed that, but I didn't.
