So a 30 minute lunch break is ALMOST enough time to have a smoke, eat some leftover chicken, shrimp and broccoli stir fry, and read the latest of Hire Jim Essian. Since we need more posts, here is the rip from said post:
Question to Cubs.com from concerned fan:
Aug. 8 is the 20th anniversary of the first night game at Wrigley. Why is the game not a night game? Is there any chance they will change it?
– Liana W., Hiawatha, Iowa
Don’t worry. By the time they bring the game tape all the way to Hiawatha on horseback and run it through the projector at the town picture show so all the town folk can watch it, it will be night time. It will also be August 12th.
CARRIE: I’m sure you know that the game was rained out on Aug. 8, 1988, so the first official night game at Wrigley Field was played the next night, Aug. 9. That said, Aug. 8 this year is a Friday, and one of the rules regarding night games at Wrigley is that none are played on Fridays or Saturdays. It’s an attempt to help alleviate some of the congestion in the Wrigleyville neighborhood.
A lesser-known rule regarding night games at Wrigley is that you have to have at least one dude with a popped collar yell at you, “Cubbies fucking rule, bro! Fuckin’ D-Lee, bro! Looooouuuu! Let’s do a shot, man! What are you, a pussy?”
