It’s always fun to be at Wrigley Field, but yesterday’s game didn’t quite go as enjoyably as it could have. Justin Germano didn’t have great stuff or location early, and the Cubs couldn’t do much with Big Time Timmy Jim. And, with a long drive after the game (and the attending late night arrival), it’s an early morning EBS.
I did get to see Jed Hoyer briefly, and the hat Jon Lovitz threw after singing the Seventh Inning Stretch landed at my feet. I did not see it, however, and it took a crowd of folks staring me down like my fly was open for me to realize the hat was just sitting there. Because I hadn’t even seen it, I didn’t feel like I had “earned” it, so I gave it to the first guy who pointed it out to me (there weren’t any kids immediately visible).
If you watched yesterday’s game from the second inning on, it would have looked like a great Cubs effort. Unfortunately …
