I can't belive it took me this long to get to Wrigley this year.
But it was kind of a great day to finally make it with the Cubs shutting out the first place Brewers 3-zip.
The first thing, of course, was seeing the green Wrigley sign.
Hey! Someone got married! That's CRAZY!
I remember reading there was a big deal about Old Style still being served, but the real drag was no Red Stripe.
And inside, there were no banners or anything at all featuring the players. (I didn't see the mural)
Outside, well there weren't alot of people there. (edit: the official attendance on the box score says 36,671? Really?)
The guy in front of me wore this.
When Ryan Braun came up, he was treated appropriately.
Then he hit a single.
But then the Cubs came up and scored all the runs we'd see all day.
Bonifacio led off with a bunt which was cool.
Coghlin moved him over, then Starlin Castro dang near hit one out, but it still scored Bonifacio.
Then Welington Castillo hit a double and it knocked in the rest of the runs and I said...
(My wife likes the weird radioacive relish).
Matt Garza ended up pitching his way out of Chicago.
I can't believe it, but I never got a shot of Edwin Jackson, who was really good with the 7 innings of 4 hit, 11 strikeout, shutout ball.
But I did get this shot of Neil Ramirez.
Don't you love this guy?
Struck out 2 in his one inning.
My main man Mike Olt didn't look so hot, so no photos of him today, but I guess no post featuring photos at Wrigley is complete without something about the ivy, so... here.
Today it's gorgeous out, and my buddy Oif is going with his kids.
Hope they see a win.
