All right. Cubs/Dbacks, Friday the 13th.

Just snagged a trio of 5th row seats just beyond 3rd base for 20% off face on Stub Hub. (The bleacher nation will have to do without me in the bleachers.) Hotel for that week is booked. Transportation is arranged. Beers have been scheduled (in Bloomington, IN, of all places). I'm almost looking forward to this trip.

Now, can someone do something about the weather? I walked to work in a hoodie and jeans this morning. It appears that I'd die of heatstroke pretty much instantaneously if I tried that back east these days. Today's high here in HMB is about 10° lower than Chicago's forecasted low.

It's supposed to cool off this weekend. Saturday's high is only supposed to be 92. Brrrrr!
Please don't feed the psychos.

Here in Bloomington the highs are fluctuating quite a bit this week. The lowest high is today at 95 with Wed, Thurs & Sat all with a high of 99. I wouldn't pack your hoodie for the trip.

I'm considering not even packing any pants.

Hippie. Actually, you may fit in fine around here.

Hey, Ace, once you wake up from your beachside nap: aren't you planning on making the 7/13 game? Or was it the next day's game... I can't remember what your schedule was.

I will be in Chicago the 13th, but not at the game. Going on the 14th. Will you have any free time?

Prolly. We've got nothing planned for after the game (AFAIK).
