Greetings from the Friendly Confines!
It was so cold when I got to Chicago on Wednesday that I bought me a coat. Guess what color? Dodger blue baby! We went to Numero Uno for dinner. Good pizza! We felt guilty after having the pizza so we went to work on the threadmill while watching our Lakers win!
Thursday, after having lunch at the hotel we went to John Hancock observatory. Wow 96th floor! My ears were popping! Beautiful view from there and I loved all the history.
We got to the friendly confines, Wrigley Field in time for BP. Before going in we walked around the park. Take a look at this picture from a local bar:
Too funny using Manny’s name! Z has been suspended for 6 games.
Entering this series, the Cubs and Dodgers franchises have split their 2,024 games against each other!
Two Randy’s on the mound for the first game: lefty Randy Wolf against righty Randy Wells.
I was on the edge on my seat in the 9th inning when the baby bears had the bases loaded with one out. Our closer was not on the mound as he had thrown 36 pitches the day before so Troncoso was on the mound. Tron pitched the 8 & the 9th. Dodgers win 2-1! El Lobo picked the win!
We met Dodger fans from Whittier, CA; The San Fernando valley; and ran into two Dodger Lady fans from the Booster Club! They recognized me from the meetings. I kept score but :-( I lost my program and not only that, I lost one of my Dodger earrings :-(( but we won the first game!!! :-).
Friday’s matchup: Lefty Ted Lilly against our righty Chad Billinsgley.
