Cubs Game

The game last night was a lot of fun. Got there around 5:30 and managed to find a decent seat for $28 dollars. Then just watched batting practice and what not til' the game started at 7:05. Cubs blew the game open in the first inning and continued crushing the ball the whole night.

In the 8th inning, after Dunn hit a solo shot for the Reds, everybody was expecting the ball to be thrown back onto the field as is Wrigley tradition, but I guess the dude that caught it decided to keep it. So then out of nowhere 30 different balls got thrown onto the field from every single direction, lol. Game had to be halted so all the balls could be picked up.

Anyway, should have taken the Over on the game because it was a slug fest all around. Zambrano himself went 3-4 with an RBI and received a standing ovation when he was taken out. I cashed on my play, as well as an extra $40 from this dude from work. Took a few pictures and a video of the 7th inning stretch. Dates on pictures is wrong cause I'm too lazy to change the date on my camera.
