My First MLB Game

I love the Cubs. Have I mentioned this before?

Well, Thursday marked my very first time at a big league game - it was awesome! The smell of hot dogs and popcorn, the sound of cracking bats and the ball hitting the catcher's glove, the green grass at the stadium, and perfect weather - who could ask for anything more?!

More exciting was the fact that Carlos Zambrano was pitching - my fave. Of course he pelted a few too many players on the Giants side (boo hoo) and was taken out of the game after about four innings. His first replacement came and went and then none other than the Iowa Cubs favorite alum, Kerry Wood, was brought in. It was fun to see him pitching again (in person) since the last time I saw him was about 10 years ago.... and every time I hear his name, I can't help but think about Star 102.5's Colleen saying 'Doing the Kerry Wood' when referring to....well, you know.

Kerry Wood

Anyway, Jason and I went to San Francisco the night before and walked down to AT&T Park around noon on game day. I received an awesome sunburn on my face and my hands looked like I was wearing red mittens since I had on a long sleeved shirt. Stylin'...

The Cubbies lost 4-1, but it was a great experience that I won't forget and it was so much fun to see some of my favorite players in action!

Oh man, I think of 102.5 every time they mention Kerry Wood, also. Looks & sounds like a great time. Glad you finally got to a game.

Love, Mom
