A guy I went to high school with has been after me for years and years to get down to St. Louis and go to a game with him.
It's finally that time.
I'm about to drive into that heat with the top down and number 30 all over my face and neck and suffer all the way downstate.
Pretty sure we'll watch tonight's game on tv somewhere, then on Sunday we'll go to the park for the 2:15 start.
I haven't been to Busch Stadium since it used to be the old Busch Stadium, and it was with our little league team which was called A.R.A. Bi-State Mobile Refrigeration since that was our sponsor.
Bi-State for short.
It was a day they took all the City League teams to the game (Khoury League was the league with all the really good players), and we rode in big yellow school busses, and I vaguely remember Dave Kingman hitting a homer or a grand slam or something.
That was about a hundred years ago.
Sunday's going to have 4 game winner Travis Wood throwing against 11 game winner Lance Lynn.
When I finally accepted the invite, I told him that I always wear my 1989 vintage Shawon Dunston uniform (complete with pants and everything except spikes) to any away game I go to.
Of course I don't even own that, but I think he's nervous that I'm serious.
Anyway, I think I understand how to post from my iPhone.
Yep, I just posted "Test" with an eyeball in a tree root.
So, you know...Go Cubs!
