Gone Fishing

The Cubs record improves to 18-23 with a 5-1 victory yesterday over the Marlins.  Today is the big day as the Cubs take on the Red Sox for the first time since 1918.  This is historic folks.  Babe Ruth beat us last time.  They’ve got retro jerseys for the series and with all the hype surrounding it, I’m going to miss it.  Probably one of the biggest series(over hyped maybe) in recent years and I’m going—fishing.  it’s ironic that the Cubs finish up with the Marlins and I go fishing.

We’re heading up north to Barry’s Bay which is a hop skip and a jump to Algonquin Park.  My brother and my dad and I are going to try our luck at some Pike fishing and Trout.  It should be fun, but I’m a little sad that I’ll miss the series.

Next month, the Yankees are coming to town.  I won’t miss that one.

    When I saw your title I figured you were talking about us beating the Marlins again, lol. Have a good trip. I plan on watching as much of this series as I can. I have family that are Red Sox fans and I expect to hear from them some time today before the series starts.

    Bring on the retro… anything to hide bad defense 😉

    Have a good trip. Hopefully the Cubs take care of business while you are gone.

    I was in Boston and the town was crazy with Cubs fans. Many of them on the Fenway and Freedom Trail tours with us (as well as at Cheers). They made special t-shirts, pennants, and pins just for this event. Like I said, it was crazy.
