Chicago Cubs…..PLAY BALL!!!!! (No foolin’!)

April 1, 2011

For some odd reason I thought the Chicago Cubs‘ opening day was April 12th. I guess I was fooled! Today the Cubs open at home…Wrigley Field…against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The article* below is about the Cubs and my mother’s Aunt Marion who was born in 1893. (Yes, they both were named “Marion.”) My Great-Aunt Marion tells of her relationship with William Wrigley Jr. If you click on the image below, the text will be magnified. Or, if you don’t want to tilt your head to read part of the article, you may read the pdf file. It has all of the text in horizontal rows.

Road trip anyone? As of 9:08 this morning, there were 1,295 tickets left for today’s game.
