It still shocks me, seeing all the empty seats at Wrigley. And last night, it was cool and grand and the Cubs played just a really nice, relaxed baseball game.
Why can't it be like this all the time?
Ted Lilly was fabulous, as always. In the 7th a couple Pirates got on and Ryan Church is up and he's got 2 strikes on him, and Ted has 100 pitches even and everybody got up on their feet yelling and it was kinda electric and Ted strikes him out.
That's what it's supposed to feel like, man.
Alfonso hit a couple out.
Marmol was on.
Just a great night at the ballpark, Cubs 3 and the Pirates 1.
You shoulda been there.
Here's a couple pictures.
