It's been a while that I've had a day off with a Braves road game. That means I'll likely settle in at some bar and have lunch while I watch the game.
I actually had tickets to this game, the Braves road game against the Chicago Cubs. I sold the tickets after we decided to go to Chicago a few weeks earlier for the Rock'n'Roll Chicago Half Marathon. That weekend was a blast.
I'll be in Chicago soon enough, for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon on Oct. 10. Can't wait.
But it would have been nice to see with my own eyes Derrek Lee in a Braves uniform at Wrigley.
