Lou Piniella's Cubs were in town to play the Bobby Cox's Braves.
After a rainy day, spent inside tethered to my laptop around 7PM a friend and I venrtured over to Turner Field. We missed the opening pitch because of the Masters' coverage, and yes - usually I'm diligent about arriving at a stadium early and being in my seat in time for the opening pitch - BUT admitteldy, I was also curious to see how Tiger would perform today. ****For those of you that are living in under a rock he shot a 68.
Arriving at Turner Field, I honestly felt like I'd never been there before. Nothing looked familiar. It was very strange. In general, I'm "anti-change". I value consistency. However, Atlanta is like home and I have learned to "trust" the city.
My friend scalped 2 tickets outside, while I took pictures of the Hank Aaron statue. ****There were other statues on display, but the Hank Aaron statue was the only one that I felt compelled to photograph.
The Cubs changing pitchers AGAIN
Ultimately the fire power I expected to see from Jason Heyward et al, failed to translate into runs tonight.
The rookie went 0-4 tonight
