    Lucky Charms

    I think this is my second post using the title of a cereal, but what the hay. Let's get to the good stuff.

    Sugar Daddy and myself at the game. Notice his new hat. Yes, they make one in his size.

    The old skool scoreboard. This think is awesome. I had no idea that there were people in there updating all the stats and such. This is baseball purism. I also found out there is no "bull pen", which is strange I guess, and that if you sit in the bleachers below this sign, you shouldn't take kids or those sensitive to the party crowd. 'Nuff said.

    And we were there to see the Cubbies break the sweep against the Brewers. I guess we really are their lucky charms. Hence the title, get it?

    And the perennial sign shot. I wish I could take credit for this shot, but I think the fact that I already told you they beat the Brewers, and this sign clearly says Pirates, you would catch me in a lie. So I give credit to this guy. You don't need to click the link because I don't know him, but I don't want to steal his work. You know, the whole copyright thing, yadda yadda yadda.

    I have to give a special shout out to ESPLeeAnn for her immense knowledge of both the sport and the field. It's always good to have a true fan along for the ride.

    So there you have it. The blog fodder I promised. I hope you weren't disappointed. Later.

    I don't think anyone would have even caught the sign wasn't yours. I even read Pirates, and didn't pick up on it. That pic of you and Sean is cute. How fun.

    How fun to see in person and not just on TV. However, Troy and I would go and watch the people not the game. As Troy would say, we are not stick and ball sports people.

    Stick and ball, that's hilare.

    Yeah, the people watching was priceless, that's for sure. Especially the hoochie mamas who had then entire song YMCA choreographed, and did it with a beer in their hands. Sweet.

    Hey, I didn't know you were already going to the game. Sounds like it was really fun!! We haven't been avoiding you today (Friday). We had to go out to Vernal today and check on a few things so we have been gone all day and just got home. 5:00.
    Anyway, have a good time in Chicago. Where are your kids? I wish I was there to tend them.

    Congrats to the Cubs for winning. It sounds like you guys had a great time and it is a plus that it was free for you guys.

    Ken is jealous that you got to go to a Cubs game.
