Cub Family…

Cub Family

We went to Wrigley Field for the first time this year (hopefully not the last). It was Mia’s first trip there.

It was Cubs vs Pirates. Unfortunately, they lost 4-3 but they almost rallied at the end. We had a good time anyway. Mia was very good and so was Diego. Of course by the 7th inning, they started: Diego was like “when is it over?” and Mia was missing her nap so she started to get cranky. But we all survived the game and we all left happy. It did help that it was Build-A-Bear Day. The bears were adorable as always.


And yeah, Mia took her nap. About two hours worth. 🙂


I was just waiting for a few days to pass before writing this post. The bad news: Cubs lost. They just collapsed. So, so sad! The good news: I’ll be getting a refund for my tickets. 😆 It is just so heart wrenching that the team couldn’t even win ONE, just one. That is all. Make us Cub fans a little happy. But no, they just collapsed. At least the Sox didn’t make it either (at least they won ONE game) so we don’t have hear it from anyone.

Well, at least we still have the Bears. GO BEARS!


Better win the next three games so they can go to the NLCS series. Why you ask? Because are a team that is capable of doing such a thing. And because I scored some tickets for game one of the NLCS at Wrigley.

Go Cubs go! And begging that you win the next three games to win the division and we are going to party like it is 1908!!!

Season Is Done…

The tournament has been canceled for the year. Due to a mishap with the Chicago Park District, there were no fields available to play on. So that is that. No 2007 CACSL tournament champion this year. Well, there is always next year. 😆

But the party continues, the end of the year party is this coming Friday. Excellent!

Softball Continues…

I know I haven’t update anything but there really hasn’t been much playing for the last few weeks.  Lots of rain postponed a few games, one make up game was forfeit by the other team and more rain happened.

Finally, the playoffs started.  Should have happened last Tuesday (postponed due to rain).  Should have been done on Saturday (again, postponed due to rain).  So here we are Tuesday night.  Traffic was horrible.  Took me 45 minutes to get up to Waveland Park.  There is a Cubs game (go Cubs!) tonight so that just messes everybody up.

We get there.  I only see three guys and one girl from our team warming up.  It is already 6:35.  The game start at 6:30.  So the guys are frantically calling the other guys and gals to see were they were.  They were stuck in traffic.  The minutes are ticking by.  Of course, the Beavers don’t want to concede.  Finally, at 7 the rest of the team show up.

And now we have a new problem:  we are short a girl.  Guess who they ask to play: me!  I was not prepared at all.  I am wearing my capri pants, sandals and a tank top.  No sports bra and no cleats.  But I played anyway.  I took off my sandals, grabbed a glove and played catcher.  I went up three times.  I popped up twice and was walked once.  Somebody pinched run for me.  She scored!!!  At least I did something right.

The problem with not wearing shoes:  I was stepped on twice by people wearing cleats.  Granted they were plastic but it still caused pain.  Just sucked it up.

The game was intense.  They were tied 11 by the end of the sixth.  By then, it was 8 and dark.  So they stopped playing and vowed to finish the last inning some other time.  Not everyone was happy with that decision but majority rules.  Let’s hope the outcome is in our favor.  Go Beavers!!!!

Softball – Week 7

No game tonight. Called due to the weather. Huge thunderstorm rolled in and out. Even though the rain is done, the fields are probably flooded. As you may recall week 4, they played in really bad fields and no one felt comfortable playing that day.

They now have two make up games to play later in the season. Go Beavers!!!
