My Second Baseball Game

Today, we had our second game. We woke up about 10:30 and began to shower and get ready. We made it out of the hotel by about 11:45 and began the search for some lunch. While we were driving around, Drew remembered that there was a Rock Bottom Brewery in Milwaukee, so we searched for that. We found it and had a fantastic lunch.

Our waiter was super cool. He was a Brewers fan, so all of us in our Cubs gear had a great time taking some jabs at him. At the end of lunch, he brought us out a dessert that had "Go Brewers" written in chocolate on the rim of the plate. We forgave him for making a bad team choice and ate the fantastic dessert anyways.

After lunch, Drew really, really wanted to go to Potawatomi. We all gave in, but only under some conditions. We could only take $50 in. Once we lost it, we were done. But as soon as we doubled up, we'd leave. Drew sat down at a blackjack table (his game of choice at the casino) and played with $80. After a half an hour, we walked away from the table with $380!! I was a happy camper!!!

After we left the casino, we drove around for a little bit before we headed to the park to tailgate again. Tailgating was absolutely horrible. It was very windy and very cold. We didn't tailgate for too long before we headed inside. We were able to catch a little bit of the Cubs' batting practice.

The group of us had to take a picture together. (We're missing Chris and Jen.) We stopped at Autograph Alley.Yes, I'm short! I'm very short!!

This game was the Sunday night baseball game, so we were on ESPN. And it was such a great game!! The first pitch, Soriano knocked it out of the park. It was such a great way to start the game. The rest of the game was pretty great, but I'm not going to put it all here, because frankly, I don't remember it all.

The Cubs did win again, with a score of 8-5. Go Cubbies!!!

Honestly, I had no idea that I would have had so much this weekend. I was not stoked about going to the games. I was totally excited to hang out with our friends, but not about the games. I really had a great time though. Dare I say that I'd love to go to another game.
