I was the dork with the transistor radio walking through that Bucktown craft fair on Sunday. With all these hipsters walking around - haltered women with blonde dreads and hand-made miniskirts, young guys still sporting that Johnny Knoxville look, and me letting out the joyful “WOOO!” when young Matty Murton hits the 3 run dinger and puts the early dagger in the heart of the Cardinals.
My daughter Emily, thankfully, was not horrified at my antics.
Mother-in-law Donna was eye-deep in a booth selling home made milk-soap.
Anyway, fabulous afternoon, beautiful day.
Cubs 4 Cards 2, Brewers 5 Reds 2, Cubs still in front by one game.
Then I got home and watched football with Garry the Cop.
I’ve already lost my patience with the Bears allowing Rex to drive the Caddy…this is a good team.
Okay, Reds tonight.
I’ll be there with Sutter and Olson.
