For the second straight season my Cubbies have come to town and delivered the hometown Nationals a series sweep. I want to thank the three people below for heading out to the ballpark with me and helping me enjoy three beautiful August nights:
All 3 games were played on unbelievably mild August nights that just made sitting in the ballpark about the best place to be in the area. For Games 1 and 2 our seats were almost in identical spots but on opposite sides of the field. But for Game 3 we were right up on the field…4 rows off the field right next to the Cubs dugout.
The games were Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday games and both teams being in last place in their division so the park was only about halfway filled with fans…but at least half of those were there to see their Cubbies. And we were surrounded by a sea of Cubs fans along that thirdbase line. Everyone was having a great time…except maybe this security guard (seriously, click the picture and check out the complete lack of enthusiasm on his face):
It was good to see Ivan back on the field as a Cub. Do you think that guy is gonna hate The Big Lebowski? I mean, how many asshats like me will be yelling, “Nobody fucks with Dejesus!” at him during a game?
The Cubs series every year always seems like such a blur and goes by so fast…especially when they win every game. Next year can’t get here soon enough.
Thanks for all the fun this week.
See you next year.
