All in the family

My sister is a Chicago Cubs' fan, I'm a St. Louis Cardinals' fan. When the two play each other, it's time for a family reunion.

I traveled to Chicago Friday to watch. Unfortunately, the temperature was in the 60s and rainy. Even worse, the Cards lost after going into the bottom of the ninth inning with a 4-2 lead, ouch.

Above: Wrigley Field is an icon, the second-oldest stadium in baseball (after Fenway Park in Boston).

Above: Umbrellas at the ball park? Yep, it was a constant drizzle.

Above: Ernie Banks was always one of my favorite players. He was a shortstop who was a slugger before that was so common.

Photos taken with my P&S. Because of the rain, I left my good camera in the car.


  1. Your p&s does a great job. These are very fine photos. Sorry about your team but you know what does happen! :-)

  2. Sorry about your loss. An uncle of mine used to have a t-shirt that read, "I'm a fan of the Cardinals... and any other team playing the Cubs."

  3. More proof that women are smarter than men.

    (I thought I'd beat the females post.)

  4. Personally, I liked the game and the results ...

  5. Chicago is such a cool city. Funny to see people with jackets on; I forget that it's fall now since it's still in the 90s here in Vegas.

  6. Like your new header. But I hope you don't get in dutch!

  7. I'll hand it to you. I couldn't sit through a baseball game in fair weather much less this!!! I love the Cards because Bob Crowe does. That's the extent of my knowledge. :)
