Chicago Cubs on Memorial Day

27 May 2008 No Comment

For the first time in 4 years, I attended a sporting event on Memorial Day (and saw the Dodgers play a road game). The Cubs beat the Dodgers 3-1 at Wrigley Field as Derrek Lee hit his 250th career home run. The game included The National Moment of Remembrance at 3 PM local time on Memorial Day after Alfonso Soriano walked to lead off the 6th inning.

Tonight, for the 4th time, I am attempting to complete the Chicago / Milwaukee sweep – attending a game at all 3 ballparks in 3 days (August 2002, July 2004 and April 2008 being my prior times). However, 3 days could be considered a long time to complete the sweep – 5 weeks ago I attended a game at all three ballparks in just two days:

Mon, April 21, 2008: Cardinals at Brewers
Tue, April 22, 2008: Mets at Cubs
Tue, April 22, 2008: Yankees at White Sox
