Crosstown Classic

May 18th, 2007


A pic I took today at the Cubs/Sox series opener

The weather is getting really nice around here, and when that happens the ivy at Wrigley starts getting green. I biked over to Wrigley for the Cubs/Sox game today – the Cubbies won 6-3. It’s a rather insane rivalry, much more heated than the Cubs and the Cardinals, as it’s the northside vs. the southside. It has a bit of a Chelsea/Arsenal feel to it. Only two cities in the country can host a rivalry like this, and this is the only one that doesn’t require a trip to a different borough. There were quite a few drunk guys in the stands, and quite a few people using lots of colorful metaphors and coming very close to beating the hell out of each other. The Sox fans have their own version of “nice arch” – they just show the Cub fans the World Series patch on their sleeve. All we’ve got is Eamus Catuli, and AC036198.

    With the weather being so nice I would think that the blog activity would be going down but you’re keeping it up rather well. Don’t worry you’ll make it to the “geriatric” stage of the Zimmers and hey, I like the arch!

    Thanks man – I’ve become a bit more efficient at it so it doesn’t take as much time. And I like the arch too – I’ll have to explain the meaning of it sometime.
