We stayed at a hotel about 1/2 a mile south of Wrigley Field so we were able to walk to the game.
Our friend Randy Thompson was in town for his niece's graduation and he decided to join us for the game. The game started at 1:20, but we met Randy at 11:30 at Murphy's Bleachers, a bar across the street from Wrigley for a few pre-game beers. We went to Harry Caray's Tavern after the game for a post game pint.

We were happy that Reed Johnson was playing. He's one of our favorite players.
