Don't let the pictures fool you - there's no cubbie blue running through my veins. South Side for life!! Haah. I am, however, lucky enough to be good friends with one the Cub's owners, Laura Ricketts. I knew she'd love to see me attend, but when I heard that the money made from the tickets and auction items benefited kids and I knew I had to attend. The event was a blast and helped raise a ton of money. Plus, in all fairness, the Cubs staff was incredibly nice. I don't think Kerry Wood got a bite in during dinner, all with a genuine smile.
Whether they're your team or not, the organization is something we as a city can be proud of.
That said... GO SOX!!
