Cubs vs Mariners Game

We drove to Seattle on June 23rd for a Cubs game.  They were playing the Mariners the next day so we thought we should take advantage of the fact that they were here in the Northwest.  We stayed with our friend Randy that night so we got to visit with Randy's Brother Robin & his wife Jane who were also visiting.  Dave went to college with Randy, Robin & Jane.  Here's a photo of them before we left for the game.

Here's Ted Lily pitching with Tracy at 3rd.

Here we are with our friends Matt & Becky, who unfortunately were cheering for Seattle.  It was interesting that there were just as many Cubs fans there as there were Mariners fans

Lou Piniella had to come out of the dugout to argue a call at 3rd.
