It was one of our cheapest dates in awhile ~ my ticket (which included a $10 lunch voucher) was $15 and Andy got in for free. We got to enjoy two brats (after all this time swearing I don't like them, turns out I do!) and a large diet Pepsi all for the bargain price of $20.
We decided to switch from our initial seats because as we sat cheering all the rows and seats around us started to fill up quickly ~ turns out there were 300 elementary school kids there on a field trip, ugh. I'm glad that these days the only kid I have to worry about chaperoning is my own!
Sadly for Addie, this what not the best game to see. As soon as we sat down the Reds hit 3 homers, after being in the park for just a few minutes the score was 5-0, Reds. Boo! At the start of the fifth inning it started to rain and we took off for home. A quick check of ESPN.com confirms that it still is looking tough for the Cubbies...now the Reds lead 9-0.
It may not have been the Cubs victory that we wanted Addison to experience, but nonetheless she loved everything about the game, the noise, the smells, the cheers, the people.
