OK, just like last time. I'm looking for a friend to come to the game with me next week, so, if you want to go, just tell me why I should pick you. The game is at 7:05 CT on May 17.

Because, being Mexican and bilingual, I can teach you cool Spanish words/phrases that we can use on Soriano and DeJesus. I would buy you a beer or 10 at the game, too. Beer, baseball, and Spanish, with your new Mexican friend. How can you say no to that?

I would love to go Brett! I’m in college and I finish up taking my finals Tuesday! And this would be a much needed break from school! I would really owe you. I’d buy you a beer and talk about all the stupid stuff you did in college and just chill out and drink a few to many oldstyles together and have a good time

Because when I attend games with you, 1) the Cubs win 2) We get on TV 3) We are surrounded by firefighters who hurl out hilarious insults to the opposing team and later brag at the after-bar about orgies they've participated in and 4) I've been working on my Hunter Pence insults: "Hey Hunter, keep your head in the game, stop looking so 'Pence-ive'."

Ok, so the insults will need some work. But, in all seriousness, even if I don't win the extra ticket, I'll still come out to Wednesday's or Thursday's game because I had a blast hanging out with you the last time.

Because the Cubs have an undefeated record (11-0) when I attend games. I trust that you'll make the right decision ;)

Woo! I would love to go with you Brett! I'm Meredith. I write about baseball culture as well as drinking culture in Wrigleyville. I can make a good
Marmol joke. I cuss a lot, like to put several beers away. Also, I'm half cute. So ya know theres that.

Because I have keys to the oldest bar in Wrigleyville. And will trade beverages for a ticket. Confident that's the best proposal you'll get.

But we'll also be pretty busy White Sox-proofing the bar that night, so we'll defer to the second best answer you get. But swing by with the eventual winner and I'll happily buy you both a round to facilitate the Cubs game blind date. 3439 North Sheffield, under the Old Style beer sign.

Cheers, safe travels to Chicago, and Go Cubs!

Brett lets see well I think you would want to meet your intern of the future, so this would be a great opportunity for us to meet. The cubs win most of the time when I go to the games. I would say LaDicuouls at least like 10 times. I will laugh at Juan Pierre's throwing arm. I will quote Total Cubs Move during the game. Plus legally on facebook my name is Rob TheBest Willer so you would be will someone that is sometimes callled the best. If you want I can keep score I can plus I even umpire in my local park district so if one of the umpires gets hurt I can sub in. Also if the cubs hit a homerun I will run around the whole stadium.

Why I should go:
1) My wife would be PISSED.
2) I have several meetings scheduled for that day I would have to either cancel, reschedule or find a fill in.
3) Money is currently tight so even just the gas and coffee to keep me awake driving home to Iowa the same night would be too much money.
4) I have been told I can, with some effort, actually smell quite fresh.
5) Old Lady would be SO PISSED.
6) I have to take a PT test Saturday so that would be pretty fun to exhaust myself Thursday night and use that as an excuse for failing rather than my sloth behavior since last October.
7) Not really a big fan of drinking sooooo you would not get that super fun experience.
8) Might just go all "Kissing Bandit" on David DeJesus. (Not gay, but I really don't think you have to be to notice how damn pretty the man is.)
9) You could earn a medal for supporting members of military.
10) Did I mention how angry my wife would be?
11) Throw the HR back? Dude, there are no phillie HRs.
12) I'm very interesting, even by Iowa standards.
13) Ah, shit! My wife is coming!

There you go. You just had to go and get all witty and smart about it didn't you?

My boss sucks and won't let me take time off next week. I guess I have to quit.



Or withdraw my name from consideration. Booooooo! I'm sad now and hate my job.
