Baseball, there is no crying in baseball...just drinking

Here is a photo dump from the Cubs – Cardinals game. The gang got choice seats in the bleachers thanks to Jensen. We decided that 2009 would be the year of the silly straw. They were a mega hit and everyone kept asking where we got them. Thankfully the straws acted as a pacer because we would have gone through a lot more beer (then again, we stopped counting after five). You can see in the pictures the stacks of cups. Speaking of cups, it seemed like everyone in the bleachers was playing cups (where you add or take dollars based on the batter outcome). I understand now when they talk about Cubs fans just there for the drinking.

One funny note is the flock of seagulls in the outfield. I don’t know if someone threw a pretzel or what, but a dozen birds swarmed in and started prowling the outfield. The center and right fielders tried to shoo the birds away, but they would just come back.

After the game, we headed over to Casey Moran’s and their weird laser light show. Seriously, being so close to Wrigley Field, you would think they would be more sports bar. Nope, it was all techno and flashing lights. Of course I did participate in a lot of Lady GaGa dancing. Damn her and the infectious songs!

Oh did I mention Peeps! Yep the Peeps made another appearance. Long live sugar coated marshmallows!
