Melancholy afternoon

Cubs lost 5-3, but it was an entertaining game. We were ahead at one point, and in the ninth we closed the gap. Our seats were so good that I was able to take this photo of Starlin Castro without even getting up.

But I was a little blue throughout. When the game was over, I didn't want to get up and leave because when this season ends, I feel like I will be losing something dear. Derrick Lee is gone. Lou has announced his retirement. Both Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot are gone.

This happens every 5 years or so. Management loads up the truck and hauls away players that I have come to care about. It bothers me more than the losing.

  1. I'm glad you had such terrific seats on such a beautiful day. No better way to spend a day in my opinion, win or lose.
