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. :)
