First of all, I bought some new colors for my Log cabin shawl blanket. I flew in and out of Needles N Pins without saying hello to the group at all. I had to get back for my Cub online ticket purchase. Spoiler alert: I did not go to the game last night and they WON!!!!! This is my flag at the game. I sent it with my pal Mary Ellen when she told me she was going to last night’s game. I’m overjoyed.
Did I buy tickets for tonight? Well, I took all your advice , truly, and threw the answers up in the air and the one that fell down said, “Stay home”
What really happened was I went on line. Fireman had already put the kabash on the whole idea. Not that I couldn’t overrule. But when I got online, and the whole system really worked well, here’s the deal:
the ticket prices were : 121 dollars each seat for upper deck so 250 with ticket fees. Not to mention, a tank of gas, 50 bucks, and I have to have food at the game and fireman has to have beer. So 50 bucks more. Oh and parking at least 25 dollars. Those were the cheapest available with a seat.
So I moved on to tonights possible game: Even higher prices. I Believe we calculated 356 for two tickets to tonights game. add 125 for above.
And…………….what did it do?
If it was a WORLD Series game I may have considered it. NO, I would have bought them. But it is still the playoffs.
Fireman’s ribs are very very sore. We are seeing the doc today. Because the nurse wife insists. He can feel one rib popping. He looks flushed to me.
AND Miss Pie needs a dental under anesthesia and xrays. So Pie comes first. Not that I couldnt buy the tickets and work it out. Not that I couldnt call it my Christmas, anniversary, National Crazy cat lady day, present.
All of you Dodger haters made me laugh. We think the same about the Cardinals here. Hate is a strong word, but we are talking baseball here!
But, I do have this whole cozy routine about watching the games, texting my kids and Karen all during the game, knitting and falling into bed exhausted from the emotion of it all. SO HOME it is, and lets play two! CMON CUbbies.
