My husband is a huge baseball fan. It's in his DNA; when his mom was alive, they would bet on who would win the World Series. I don't think the stakes were very high, it was just one of those special links between the two of them.
I'm an artist and don't totally 'get' the sport thing, but after 33 years of marriage, I have an allegiance to the Oregon Ducks. Also, since Portland has has the Hops Baseball Team, I've come to enjoy baseball games, as well, so when we were in Chicago and had the change to see a Cub's game at Wrigley Field, we took L train out to the game.
All in all, it was a fun night. We met tons of friendly Chicago natives,who were more than willing to tout the features of their amazing city.
Chicago is really fun place, with very friendly people, and I can't wait to return!
