Don't get me wrong - I had tickets and I was kind of dreading sitting in that foggy random spit. But we've seen baseball played in worse, and the headlines about bathrooms and running out of hot dogs from the Opener almost outweighed the headlines about the lackluster loss to the Cards.
So I'm guessing it was at least semi-convenient to call the game early and figure out how to arrange the porta-potties.
Man, the angst in the hallway already...
These early games always seem to be figured out by what pitcher is more "on", and that didn't turn out to be Jon Lester. But it was only game uno, so don't panic about that.
If there's anything to worry about, it's Jason Heyward.
The Cards got a good one, and I bet that guy's a thorn in our side for a long time.
Looking out my window, it appears to be the exact same day as yesterday.
Hope it clears so Jake Arrieta can take the mound and even the series.
Meanwhile here at DDB yesterday, we celebrated the Beginning of Baseball with a free hot dog lunch for the whole agency.
Plus our CEO Paul Gunning said something like: "I am a Cub fan so... sorry to you Sox people but you'll have to wait for another CEO for that to change."
You know what that's called?
Okay gotta run GO CUBS!
