But the real reason that I want to go is this:
I'm telling you right now, you haven't lived if you haven't seen the Zooperstars. They are the cream of the crop when it comes to halftime or between innings entertainment and I should know, I spent an entire season working for a minor league baseball team (and before that spent more summer nights over various seasons than I can count at games with my friend Sally's family). And if you know about minor league baseball, teams are the king of gimmics between innings. I remember laughing my ass off when the Zooperstars came. I might even have shed some tears from laughing so hard. They put all other inflatable mascots to shame.

Needless to say, I won't be working so I have no idea how much MORE funny they'll be after a couple of beers. I can't wait!! There is also a pizza place on the way to Wrigley that does an all you can eat Sunday morning beer and pizza brunch that we've been wanting to try. That might be more interesting (and cost-effective) than ballpark food.
P.S. I am so mad at myself that I didn't take my camera on my bike ride yesterday because I want to show everyone the lakefront path that I am totally blessed to run on almost every day. If the weather is nice tomorrow, I will do my best to remember to take some photos!
