Game 2 at Wrigley

April 10th, 2007

The girls and I went over to Wrigley today to watch the second home game of the year. We were going to go yesterday for the home opener, but didn’t as there were snow flurries and pretty cold temps. Today was tolerable, at 47f or so. We’ll try it again tomorrow if the rain and snow stay away. We of course lost to the Astros. On the way to Wrigley the El train conductor, when making the announcement to the train packed with Cub fans that Addison was approaching said: “Addison is the next stop. Addison is the next stop. If you want to see your beloved Cubbies lose again, get off at Addison.” Damn Sox fan. Here are a few photos I took today –

Then it got a bit cold in the 4th inning, and they took shelter –

    Given the looks on their faces, I’m not sure “enjoying” was the right word to use regarding the hot dogs.  The girls are terribly cute, though, and it looks like y’all had fun.

    I think by the time they got the hot dogs they were a bit starving, and were shoving them down the pie holes pretty quickly. After downing the first dog (which was the first time they ate a hot dog in this manner – with the bun as opposed to one of us cutting the thing into little pieces for them) they both wanted a second, which they downed as well. In their defense (and mine) it was a pretty late lunch .
