My First Cubs Game!

Last year I made a Chicago summer bucket list and getting to a Cubs game was on it. No, I'm not a diehard baseball fan, not much of a baseball fan at all, truth be told. But I had heard it was an experience that had to be done at least once. I never made it. Then they won the World Series! Which was seriously cool and exciting and crazy while living here! I've always considered baseball to be a snoozefest but the end of the season games that I watched last year made me start to think that I'd been wrong about baseball my.entire.life. 

Alas, I didn't think I'd make it to a game this year either since I expected ticket prices to be insane due to their championship title. But when I was gifted tickets to go a few weeks ago, I couldn't turn them down. It was a beautiful night for a baseball game and I got to hang out with some of my favorite people on the planet. Win for me! Plus, the Cubs ended up kicking NY Met butt and it was pretty exciting. Wins all around!

I only had my phone to grab some photos, and wished I had my camera, but here's what my first Cubs game looked like.

 Most beautiful night for baseball! Flags everywhere while walking in my neighborhood to Wrigley.

 My favorite part was singing the Cubs song at the end of the game!

I started this post earlier in the day and I just got in from walking home from the gym. The Cubs were winning against St. Louis while I was there. On my way home, though, after a few people said "Go Cubs Go" to me, I walked by a bar and saw the Cubs had won the National League Central Division Championship! How fitting for this post to go live tonight :)
