    Always better to lose game 1 in the CWS vs another SEC team in a blowout vs an 11 inning affair where you deplete your bullpen. Too soon???

    Prattvile, AL-Go Lions!
    Another weather delay. How about baseball size hail followed by swarms of Cicadas.

    I'd fly Southwest from Jax into Midway, BTW.

    I have flown into ORD with both of my sons when they were little in the summer during the summer semester break. It was alternate years for the two of them, but always the same thing: Take the Blue Line to the Loop, schlep bags to Union Station and check them in a locker, long walk through downtown for lunch at Berghoff's (except for the years it was closed) making sure to walk past the big Picasso iron statue, visit the candy floor at Marshall Fields department store to buy frangos for my parents, museum time at either the Field Museum or the Shedd Aquarium, cab ride back to Union Station (this was pre Lyft and Uber days), and an Amtrak ride to Champaign where my dad would pick us up and many days with my parents. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles for my kids. Always visited the club car on the train.

    Family is split between Northside (a niece on my wife's side with a tiny apartment with her husband) and Southside folks where I would have a free bed and people my age. Easy choice.

    Funny story about flying into Midway for my older sister's 60th birthday as a surprise. I had a rental car reserved and I was hearing from people in front of me that they were out of cars. When I got to the counter they said that my card was declined. Total BS. I called after it happened and I was told that my card was fine and not even run by them. They just didn't have a car for me. But being from the area I knew how to take the bus to within a quarter mile of where I was going. I ended up saving a lot of money doing that, but it was a LONG walk from the rental car counter to the buses. Much shorter walk to the rapid transit train going to the Loop.

    I fell asleep last night but woke up towards the end. The rain delay plus all the walks and umpire reviews put me into a freaking coma!

    Really looking forward to the game tonight - and hopefully a win by State!

    Wish list for Game 3—

    1) No weather delays.
    2) The Whistler is arrested for imitating a human baseball fan and spends Game 3 in jail.
    3) Umpires finally realize that the game is not about them first and the two teams second.
    4) Edwardo Perez has severe laryngitis and can not talk.
    5) Record number of triples hit in the CWS Title Championship Game.

    Let's hope so - but they will have to beat Rocker to win it. Hope their bats stay hot.

    and doesn't get replaced by Beth Mowins
