Chicago Trip

   I spent the last several days in Chicago with a friend of mine. Mainly it was to see some baseball (I'm a Braves fan as I live in B'ham, AL.) and we usually go somewhere each year to catch a few games for a "road trip" vacation. This year it turned out the schedual worked out so that we could do this trip. (We had wanted to go on a trip to Washington D.C./Pittsburgh but that fell through).
   It was a fun trip. The weather was good. We rode the trains from near our hotel in Evanston to get to Wrigley Field. We had to ride the purple train from Dempster station to Howard station then switch over to the red train & ride it down to Addison Station. Not bad at all once we figured it out. We don't have trains like this in B'ham so we weren't used to how they operate but it's not that confusing.
   Unfortunately the Braves lost all 4 games against the Cubs. Atlanta kinda sucks this year. Maybe the Cubbies will win the World Series in 2015 (like it was foretold in the Back to the Future movie).
They have some good players & are playing well so I'd not put it beyond the realm of possibility.
   Here's a couple photos from Wrigley I took while there:
