It was a fun day even though the Mariners did not win.
Here I am in the driveway on the beginning of my trip. First I had to walk to the metra (commuter train) to go downtown. After that I had to catch the red line (subway) to wrigleyville. I noticed an older couple and their granddaughter dressed in cubs shirts and hats when I got on the Metra. While walking to the subway I saw them again and asked if they were going to the cubs game. When they said yes, I kind of asked if it was ok if I just followed them to the red line. Upon talking, they mentioned that they just returned on Tuesday from a trip to the UK & Ireland. We determined that we were not on the same flight Tuesday, but while in England, Wales, and Ireland, we went to many of the same places.
One other thing of note, the Fray (a band I really like) played a show in Chicago yesterday so they happened to be the guest conductors for “take me out to the ballgame” in the seventh.
