Anyone living or visiting Lakeview on the north side of Chicago during the spring and summer, MUST keep an eye out for the baseball schedule.  The CUBS opening day is April 1, 2013.  It is an away game and they are playing Pittsburg at 12:35.  It will be broadcast on WGN. The HOME game opener is April 8, 2013 at 12:35. They will be facing Milwaukee.

Some north-siders eschew the Wrigley Field area during Cubs games.  Not me.  I get such a rush from the excitement of the crowd, the teeming energy on the street, the vendors hawking their goods.  There is no other place like it!  Raised as a Braves fan and still able to recit the line up when I went to my first MLB game, I now find myself addicted to the Cubs and joyfully join the chorus singing the oft heard refrain “Next year is here!”

The Cubs 2013 schedule is available here.

Happy Passover to everyone – especially Charlotte and her wonderful family!
