CUBS WIN! BEARS WIN!
What a great day for Chicago sports.
The Chicago Cubs have not won a playoff series since 1908 – that’s 95 years for those of you who are keeping track – until now. In an awesome game, the Cubs beat the Atlanta Braves 5 – 1 at Turner Field in Atlanta. This was one of the contributing factors to me having an awesome weekend.
Another main factor was that the Bears also won. I had given up on the Bears’ game after Cordell Stewart was intercepted and the Raiders had a run that ended on the Bears’ 20 yard line. At this point, I decided that I would go to bed for the afternoon to be at work. I wake up around 4:30 to go to dinner, and Mike tells me that the Bears won. I didn’t believe him at first because it seemed so impossible to me, but after confirming what he had said on espn.com, I was a believer. A lot of Bears fans have been very disappointed with their performances lately. Now they are 1 – 3 on the regular season and 1 -1 at the new Soldier Field (which I think is totally out of place on the Chicago Lakefront).
The last contributing factor was the trip to Hoosier Heights Saturday night. Beth, Neil, Steph and I all went out there for an evening of climbing. It was a well earned break from school and work stresses, for me. Everyone had a good time from what I can tell. I know that Beth and Steph had fun because they have asked me to take them again sometime. Of course, I don’t have a problem with that :).
After climbing, we went to Burger King and then headed back to the house. Dinner – if you could call it that – was soso. It was Burger King, what else do you expect… It’s not like it was a gourmet meal cooked by a master chef. When we finished eating, we chilled at the house for a while, then headed out to Beth’s place to hang out some more. We bought Bowling for Columbine to watch (bought meaning we bought it from OnDemand TV for a day). Most everyone ended up passing out at some point during the movie. I only missed about 5 minutes of it. The documentary was great. I throughly enjoyed watching this flick.
Anyway, that’s about all that’s happened to me recently. And now for the end of the blog rundown…
