Opening Day 2009! Cubs v. Astros TONIGHT at 7:05 EST. Luckily, it is on ESPN2 so we can watch it from the comforts of our own home -- another drawback of not living in Chicago is that unless we go to a bar, we won't get to see half the games as they are broadcasted on Comcast Sports Network -- and not only will I not get the Chicago feed of that station living in DC, but I won't get the channel at all because we have Cox cable. Boo. Luckily, we can still watch all the WGN games! But thankfully ESPN saved us tonight -- from having to be surrounded by people watching the NCAA Finals game -- MSU v. North Carolina (Go Michigan State!)
However, back to tonights game. It is fabuluos that baseball is here, and even better that Shane's team and my team get to kick off the season against each other. Since we can't be at the game, we are going to pretend -- tonight's dinner is hot dogs, peanuts, and beer! Fingers crossed for a Cubs win!
