Sunday was the final game in the Brewers/Cubs series; the Crew could go for a sweep, but it wasn’t necessary as Milwaukee had already taken the series. A win today would have just been a cherry on top.
We got to American Family Field fairly early, as you can see by the picture. Our seats were in the Club level, which meant they were far comfier than the ones we had in the Loge level. We also had access to the in-seat ordering so we didn’t have to get up to get food and drinks. Pretty nice, if I do say so myself.
Starting pitcher was Corbin Burnes and he did a very good job, but the Cubs managed to plate a couple of runs; they took the lead and didn’t look back. However, I couldn’t be bothered to get upset. As I said, we had the series win, so this game was rather superfluous in the grand scheme of things.
It ended with the Cubs scraping out a win by 2 – 0.
Well, at least to most Brewers fans. The fact that the Cubs won exactly one game made Cubs fans ridiculously happy. As in, you’d think they swept the series. But then again, they’re Cubs fans. How often do the Cubs make themselves look like dipshidiots on the field? (Answer: constantly. Like, since the 1980s when I was a kid and I learned to hate the Cubs because of WGN preempting The Transformers during summer just to show the Losing Losers in Blue lose yet another game.)
No, I do not like the Cubs. Is it that obvious?
Some of the Cubs fans brought their “W” flags. Me, I want to get a couple of these guys and bring them with me whenever I hit American Family Field for another Cubs series. I will happily fly that “L” flag with the biggest shit-eating grin on my face because I am that damn petty.
As I said, I do not like the Cubs. That will never change.
Since it was a day game, Prime and I took our time getting back home. We stopped at Taco John’s in Fond du Lac for dinner and doubled back to snap a few shots of a sign by the highway that was quite literally the most insane thing I had ever read. It’s… It’s really something and yes, I will post a picture of this… thing in the future. I’ll also have the tossed word salad transcribed for your reading “pleasure” because if I had to read it, so do you. You can thank me later. Or not.
No, the day didn’t end with a Brewers win, but it was still a good day. Here’s hoping for another great time when I next visit American Family Field. Until my next trip, go Brew Crew!
