Mrs. SBW has been bugging me to post a couple of photos I took while sitting in the cheap seats at the 15-6 drubbing the Cubs took from the Washington Nationals earlier this week.
You can't tell, of course, but that is Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder throwing out the first pitch, what seemed like an exceptionally hard strike for a ceremonial first pitch (He had actually been warming up with Ryan Theriot in front of the Cubs dugout for several minutes before).
As many of you know, Eddie loves his Cubs. He also led the 7th inning stretch sing-along, always one of my least favorite moments of any Cubs game, but of course much better with someone who can actually sing. At least I got something for my money.
