Take Me Home From the Ballgame

Due to a bad scheduling confluence, I ended up planning to go to both tonight's Cubs/Tigers game and tomorrow's Cubs/Braves game. Sadly, I couldn't find anyone to go to the game with tonight. This turned out to be just as well, as I left with the Cubs trailing by four runs in the bottom of the fifth when the Tigers starter went down with an injury. The replacement pitcher was going to be given as long as he needed to warm up and it was already nearly 9 PM.

I was really tired and I figured that it would be just as well to go home and put the girls to bed and try again tomorrow night.

Given that the Cubs lost 15-8, I think this was a good decision.

However, I did score 50K AP in Ingress on the way to and from the ballpark. And I created the largest field that I'd ever created linking off Ernie's statue. And I upgraded my first portal to P8.

That last means that I finally made it to Level 8 a couple of days ago. :)
