I made a deal with my old college roommate. He works as a handyman and agreed to help me re-route my cable wires in exchange for Cubs’ tickets. We went to the game with two of my coworkers. We got to the park an hour early and ate lunch at Yum-Yum Donuts.
The game was dull, memorable only because the Marlins were the 28th Major League team I have seen play in an official regular-season game. That’s every team currently in existence, for those of you who don’t pay close attention. The Cubs lost 2-0.
