Back In The Saddle - Cubs Win! Cubs Win! Holy Cow!

Can you say extra innings? Oh yeah!

Well, I just got back in town this afternoon. I have been in Chicago since Thursday morning. I went to watch my beloved Cubbies play and of course bring some Texas mojo to Wrigley Field. I'm excited to say that I was 3-0 at Wrigley Field. Every game was a walk off win. Two of the games went into extra innings......free baseball in my book. It was the last time since 1946 that the Cubs had won 3 walk off games consecutively. It was also one of only 6 times in the last 60 years that any team had won consecutive games after trailing by 4 or more runs going into the eighth inning. Losing 5-1 in the 8th to the Sox, won 6-5. Losing 7-0 to the Indians, won 8-7 in 10. These were some of the most exciting Cubs games back to back ever and I feel lucky to have witnessed them live. Above are a few pics from the ballgames. I'll talk about the food and drinks later on this week.....needless to say I need to run tomorrow. This was probably the best sports trip I've ever taken.
