As a die hard Cubs fan, it goes against my Northwest side sensibilities to go to US Cellular field when the Cubs aren’t playing or if a friend is not visiting from out of town. Having not seen an old friend in awhile, I was more than happy to head down to the South Side! Inside the stadium we got craft beers and headed to my friend’s season ticket seats. High above the stands we watched John Danks pitch masterfully only to have Yadier Molina ruin the day with a bases clearing triple that went along with with choruses of, “Yadi! Yadi! Yadi”
After this, we marched down to the outfield to meet another friend and finish off the game. Sox lost, Cardinals won but then the lights went out! Much to my surprise a fireworks show started and it was something I had meant to see but never got a chance to!
