promised update --
the ball game was fantastic as always. -grins- anyone who tells you that baseball is boring has clearly never been to a game in a ballpark as amazing as wrigley field. when you've been to a ballgame and heard the crowd baying its support for the home team: the screams of 'go! go! go!!!' as we watch a potential home run soar out toward the stands beyond second base; the collective moan of disappointment as it falls short; the chanting and booing and just the incredible atmosphere of Being There and supporting your team -the Cubbies-; the final pitch of the game when everyone is insanely on edge and the stands erupting with the umpire's declaring of a third strike that seals the Cubbies' victory over the Mets...who could call this game boring? and there's the additional bonus of how the field is even more green under the lights of the ballpark, the evening light fading into darkness, the sheer intensity of the closeness of the diamond -- and who could forget the wonderful taste of a hot dog smothered in everything yummy, and a soda, and a frozen smoothie on a roasting hot night?
