The Longest Day

Today was the longest day of the year, as the calendar flipped over into summer. It was also the first appearance of the Cardinals at Wrigley Field for the year, so it was a fine day to go down there and watch a baseball game.

Happily, the Cardinals won. This makes very little difference in the current standings, but it was nice to see them win at Wrigley for a change. :)

Sadly, the free shuttle bus to the remote parking is worth every penny that I paid for it. It took me fifty minutes after the game to advance to the corner of Addison and Sheffield; it was over an hour after the game ended when I finally got on a bus. Many people were behind me. (I suspect that many people joined the line nearer the front after I finally managed to make my way to the end of the line. They need much more line control than they actually deploy, given the space that they're trying to line us up in.)

And, of course, it's always pleasant to spend an hour or so ten feet away from a couple of fellows who were making up for not being able to smoke in Wrigley Field. *sigh*

But the Cardinals won, so...
