Although it was a chilly day in Chicago, it was very comfortable (even hot at times) in the bleachers, where I sat, thanks to Cubs tickets that Billy Dec was giving away via Facebook and Twitter.
The team has a 1-5 record this season, which is the worst start since 1997, when the Cubs set a National League record with an 0-14 mark. Let's hope the Cubs can get a win tomorrow so that they aren't swept by the Brew Crew!
Here are some photos I took during today's game:
