Next week, I'll be off to Chicago for a quick visit. Quick or not, I have tickets for a Cubs game against the St. Louis Cardinals. I was surprised that the ticket price was so reasonable, The Cardinals, after all, are the Cubs long-time rivals and those games are packed, so I thought it would be one of the club's Premium-tier games. Then I realized…”Oh, it’s for April 18.” I was immediately sure that that was why, as an very early-season game in Chicago, it wasn’t Premium.
Now, mind you, I'm sure that many people may think, "Ohhh, okay, I get it. I might be cold then." No, you don't quite get it. Let's put it this way. Today is the home opener for the Cubs. That's a big deal for any ballclub. Jammed park. Lot's of hoopla ceremony. Turning on my MLB GameDay service to listen to the game, I saw that the game was postponed until tomorrow. Well, hopefully tomorrow.
This is why an April 18 game in Chicago, even against their historic rivals, is not “Premium”…
Next week, when I have my ticket, it's supposed to be a balmy 46-degrees. So, here's hoping. Today is a little nippier, at 38-degrees.
