I realize I’m a couple of weeks late with these, but unfortunately, my life isn’t as much about baseball as I’d like it to be.
We had pretty sweet seats in right field over the Cubs bullpen. The only problem was the sun didn’t go down until some time in the 7th, so we roasted for most of the game. So much for the rain we were actually worried about.
It was pretty neat being so close to the players, particularly since I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting one. Edgar Tovar smiled and waved at me! No, I’m not going to get over that. It’s not every day an athlete of some kind pays me positive attention. Or any attention for that matter. And because of that little gesture, I will now defend Edgar Tovar to the death and mourn his loss should he ever leave the Cubs.
But enough about that. You’re not here for my questionable sanity. You’re here for the pictures. On with the show!
