Once More To Wrigley

The girls' probably final game of the Fall softball season (itself a rescheduling due to a rainout) was rained out this morning. Once again and sadly, the rainout wasn't announced until we'd already gotten up early to get to the game on time. On the other hand, Katie may not have been able to play in any case due to a crick in her neck induced by roughhousing with her sister. It seems to be getting better, but we're keeping an eye on it.

The rain having passed, in a few minutes I will be on my way down to Wrigley Field to watch game 2 of the NLCS. I skipped game 1 and sold the tickets -- I trust that whoever bought them was a Cubs fan and enjoyed that game greatly. :)

Can I get into the dibs line should they get to the next round (phrasing deliberate) and you choose to skip a game? :D

The problem that I'm having is that my cash flow is absolutely execrable. I have been looking at my tickets for that round and going "That would just about pay off the home equity loan I took out for the renovations last summer."

This is something I would rather not be thinking... :)

Yeah, I understand. I will be facing the same dilemma should the Pacers get to the NBA finals in my lifetime.

I can pay face value :D

“Allergies bothering me,” I said to Sean when we got up for breakfast this morning.
Yes, it’s turning out to be a bad allergy season for lots of up; however, it’s incredible for the Cubbies.
So far, they’re on their way to taking the series against the Brewers. That should happen if we manage to win this afternoon’s game in the sunshine.
Though it may be a bit chilly, I don’t think that’s going to make a difference.
I’m sure that’s why my mom is wanting to drop off the groceries for us after lunch. She wants to return home in enough time to see the Cubs win again. I hope our ending lead is much larger than how things actually ended yesterday afternoon.
I hope it’s like Thursday night.
With a good-sized lead.
The good thing is, it’ll be amazing if the Cubs win again today
Another day of winning for the Cubs is what I see today.
