But, I’m still going to Wrigleyville tomorrow, of course, just to cheer on the Crew!
I’ve never been to the historic Wrigley Field. Now that I think of it, I’ve never actually been to a stadium outside of Wisconsin. And I call myself a sports fan! Needless to say, I jumped at the chance to cheer on the Brewers at Wrigley, and maybe see a win, or at least have the opportunity to heckle some Cubs fans. *grin*
My new friend Johnny has a mini season ticket package for bleacher seats at Wrigley Field. As it turns out, he has some games in his package that he and his family can't make, including four bleacher seats for Wednesday’s game. Since he can't use them, Johnny kindly offered all four tickets to me and my friends before selling them on eBay. See, although he’s a Cubs fan, he’s a pretty decent guy because it’s an extremely generous offer, one that I couldn’t resist!
So, tomorrow, Eric, Justin, my sister and I are taking a holiday to spend the whole day bumming around Chicago, and then watching the game later that night. We will be crashing their stadium this time, of course, decked out in Brewers gear and ready to rumble with any smug Cubs fan. Knowing that they’re cocky down there, and frankly, because I’m getting sick of all of the bogus Cubs adoration, I might have to bring my knuckle dusters to put them in their place. I’m kidding. I have knucks, but I won’t bring them.
I just hope we (the Brewers) can pull off a win! Fans watched the Brewers make minced meat out of the Cubs on Opening Day. But, considering our pitching has been subpar and we’ve had an appalling inability to make runs recently, I might have to do a silent prayer before the game for a win, better yet, for a series win!
We will see what tonight’s game brings with Sheets pitching, hopefully a victory. A win might instill some confidence when we face the #1 team in the NL-Central and it may presage the outcome of tomorrow’s game as well.
I’m extremely excited and so, so grateful for the opportunity! I don’t know what’s more thrilling: taking an entire day off of work, going on a mini excursion, watching baseball in a different city, seeing a game at Wrigley Field, the prospect of fighting a Cubs fan, or witnessing the Brewers cream the Cubs (I’m keeping my spirits high). Either way, the day will be fantastic!
Thanks again for the tickets, Johnny! Sorry that I refuse to show even the slightest amount of love for the Cubs in your honor. I hope you can forgive me.
