Chicago Cubs: A dominant doubleheader and so much more

The Cubs cruised – and Zach, Gretchen and I were riding the wave of beer and vodka lemonades. We headed across the street to Murphy’s in between games to continue our escapades – and felt like calling my then-fiance would be a fantastic idea. Keep in mind that we’re mere weeks from our wedding at this point. She was at work that day – a fact she still laments. But we called her nonetheless, proposing we should order Luke Bryan tickets.

Bryan was set to play at Wrigley a week before our wedding and in the true spirit of the day, my wife actually agreed to this. I’m still not sure how – but she said yes and we ordered the tickets right then and there.

A few weeks later, on Aug. 27, the four of us enjoyed the show – and, to this day, hang out all the time. So… drinking beer and vodka lemonades and making impulse buys should always be the plan of action, right?

Next. What if these five things never happened in Cubs history?. dark

The night game brought more of the same – another Cubs win, even more beer and drinks – and good times. I can’t say the photos we took were good. But the memories, to this day, outshine going to postseason games and even being on the field itself. I’ve sat everywhere in Wrigley – but nothing will ever top that Tuesday afternoon four years ago where we spent the day in the bleachers screaming ,”You go, we go,” at the top of our lungs.
