WGN’s first broadcast of 2011

Yesterday was WGN’s first broadcast of the season and I was out and about but came back for the 6th inning.  I got to tell ya that it was great to see everyone back and it felt good to watch grass when outside we got more snow.

DJ LeMahieu.  What can I say?  Just after Len Kasper made a comment about DJ known for his defensive skills then WHAM! he sends the ball over the wall.  Great job!

As you can see, I’ve updated my profile picture.  That’s Darcy and I enjoying our first Cubs game.  My wife Mary Beth couldn’t resist taking the picture.  We’ll have to post a pic when Opening Day gets here.

Great game.  Cubs battled hard and it was good to see Dempster signing some autographs.

    Congrats again on your son…….looks like he could be a power hitting first baseman 🙂

    Thank you. He’s too sweet to be a power hitter. I think if he were outfield, he’d be looking at the grass instead of the ball. He’s a Shortstop!

    Your son is adorable! And clearly the lad has Cubs fandom in his genes. Congratulations!
