Opening Day Euphoria

12 April 2009 No Comment
The Chicago Cubs’ Home Opener is finally here. ¬† Finally….
I say, ‘finally’ because it is torturous to have a week’s worth of baseball without opening Wrigley Field. ¬† The bars are empty. ¬†The tourists have, yet, to arrive, and there is a general hush over the¬†neighborhood- a freakish silence that is just wrong during the regular season.¬†
Thankfully, the real opening day is only hours away.  It is like the anticipation of Christmas, birthdays and summers all packed into one day of playing hooky from work and heading to the bleachers. 
By 10am, we will be making our way to Yak-Zie’s on Clark¬†and then, heading to our bleacher seats by 12:30pm. ¬†Given the anticipated rain and cold weather, we have already laid out the winter rain gear which looks strangely likes our Bears gear but whose going to judge?¬†
If you are ambitious, ESPN’s Mike and Mike is kicking the morning off by broadcasting from Murphy’s starting at 5am. ¬†But, its a long season; I have to pace myself. ¬†¬†
