Take Me Out to the Ball Game

I don't pretend to understand baseball, so really the game was an anthropological experience for me. How, for example, can it be true that this many people don't have anything else to do on a Friday afternoon?

Batting practice was mildly interesting, but mostly I was reading grant narratives. (One great, one will be great, and one... well, let's draw a merciful veil. The PI doesn't really want to do that one, is what I think.) Minor amounts of mustard on the pages will have to be explained, but I can do that. .









Then the army precision parachuting team arrived. It was hard to get pictures, but pretty astonishing. I'll climb rocks, but my hat is off to anyone who will, short of his children's lives being in immediate jeopardy, jump out of a moving airplane.

Then, the game started and the Cubbies got to work. By the end of the second inning, they had scored 14 runs. This, I am told, is unusual.













Good friends. Good fun. Warm beer and Chicago hotdogs. There are certainly worse ways to spend a day!

Oh...my...goodness. Those pictures sure brought back great summer memories for me. I was SUCH a Cubbie fan in my younger days. We would take the Skokie Swift and the El out to the park, and pay our ONE DOLLAR to sit in the bleachers. Good times!
