Had a fun weekend in Illinois, what with meeting 36 dozen new people and watching Capuano crush the Cubbies to the tune of a complete game shutout. It was my first time at Wrigley Field, and I’m sure it was the best of all worlds in that I wasn’t molested at all by the Cubs Fans. It may have been because I had a small army at my beck and call in the Blue and Yellow, or maybe it was because my companion was a pretty girl wearing a Mark Prior jersey, or maybe it was because Carlos Zambrano sucks duck eggs and they were fairly disheartened. Whatever it was, it made for a delightful time of trying to keep warm and dry while yelling “wooo!” every time Carlos Lee, Prince Fielder, Goeff Jenkins, or Bill Hall hit a double (or triple, in Hall’s case). Hey Cal, why no triples in The Dinger League? Because no one ever hits triples? Uhh, WWhazz woulda got one right there. Pfffffffft.
After the game I was introduced to Murphy’s and The Cubbie Bear. Both places are so uniquely Midwest that I find it difficult to esplain them to California Folks. I’ll try: the need to shimmy and shake to AC/DC one minute, 50 Cent the next while clutching a $5.75 Bud Light overrides all. See also The Big Ten Pub after a Badger game. There were many jokes about going to Hi-Tops for a casual beer and a crotch-grab, but I never got to see the inside.
Note to Kristi– Sorry no call, but almost every minute of my trip was scripted, and we were under time crunches to get everywhere. In fact, we had to plan down to the minute how long dinner was going to take after the game so I could get whisked away to fair o’hare aeropuerto so that I could immediately have my flight delayed 3 hours.
I ate quiche for the first time. I don’t even know if that’s how you spell it, but it’s a word I don’t care enough about to look up. Take it or leave it. How was it? It was cheese and bacon so it was Delish, that’s how it was.
I noticed that besides Maddddddddd’s fevered ranting not much happened while I was gone. Good, I was afraid I’d miss the next K-car Manifesto that is never ever forthcoming BECAUSE NO ONE POSTS ANYMORE.
That was harsh, you guys are a great bunch of pals and I’m glad I can share my life with you over Teh Interweb, VIRTUALLY. I hope youre days are filled with black bean salsa and Chili’s Queso dip. And Electric Lemonade. That stuff rules. I’ve got a bunch more pics up from the game and other stuff. Remember you need to have a Flickr account and be one of my “friends” to get access to the pictures that I don’t want everyone and their momma’s to see, so do that if you want, I guess.
