I have to say right off that the Cubs lost, 2-1.
But we had a great time!
For starters, when we decided to stay in the hotel we are in, we had no idea that the express bus that goes to the game stops right across the street from our hotel, so we didn't have to worry about parking! We had fantastic seats (front row, right behind and just to the left of home plate), so we were nice and close.
James said this one guy about 15 seats from us was Mark Cuban, and it could have been, but he looked a little different to me.
Before the game started, the Rev. Jesse Jackson walked behind us, put his arm around James's shoulders and said hi, then proceeded to go have his picture taken with Lou Piniella and a few other people.
I had to take a picture of James drinking his $6.75 beer (At that price, we had to make it last! LOL). We each had a hotdog and Pepsi, and I had cotton candy (a no-no for me, but I did it anyway), and a bottle of water. I can't wait to see the game (Michelemarie and her husband recorded it for us) to see if we got any TV air time. One of the ladies who worked there (showing people to their seats) said that where we were, we would be on TV a lot.
The only thing that would have made it more perfect is if the Cubs had won, but we had a great time nonetheless!
