The rumors I’ve been hearing have been confirmed by ESPN.com. The Cubs will hold a special exhibition game on April 3 at the New Yankee Stadium. That’s right, my team gets to be the first team to destroy the Yankees at their new pad! I am going to do everything in my own power to attend this game. The logistics are still quite fuzzy on how I plan on pulling this off, but I will try. No, It’s do or do not there is no try. I WILL be there. This will involve a road trip like no other. Once I get past bat country it will be smooth sailing. Google Maps tells me it is a fourteen hour drive from Freeport to New York. If I leave right after work on Thursday I should make it by noon on Friday, watch the game and make it back to work on Monday. It’s a perfect plan. If anyone lives along the route I would be happy to pick you up in trade for a place to crash on the way home. How could I miss the first game at the New Yankee Stadium against the Cubs? One of the best games I ever went to was the Cubs against the Yankees. It was at Wrigley on Sunday Night Baseball. Pettite Vs. Prior. Prior won, I believe the final was 8 to 2. It was the same weekend the Cubs denied Clemens his 300th win. It was a good weekend to be a Cubs fan.
