It's a beautiful day for a ballgame! At least it was on August 1st when we headed out to the Friendly Confines for Gannon's first official Cubs game.
"Hold on to your hat, little dude. This is gonna be fun!"
Isla, the seasoned veteran fan, attending her fourth game.
She was very excited to get a better view of one of her new favorite players, Anthony Rizzo. She's still trying to get over the whole Dempster debacle.
Our little cubby bear felt comfortable with the Cubs' 1-0 lead and decided to take a 3rd inning snooze.
"They're LOSING?! How long was I asleep?" (Not very long.)
Kiss the baby for good luck (and a few more runs).
The happiest little fan in the ballpark, win or lose.
Are we setting him up for a lifetime of disappointment in this team? Possibly.
Are we sharing an amazing tradition with him that makes it all worth it? Absolutely.
When we left, the Cubs were still losing (2-1) and it got even worse by the time we got home. I guess they missed the "you should win one for Gannon" memo.
The next Mr. Cub? If daddy has his way...
