So I posted a little bit of bragging early in the game thread today. This is second straight year I have sat in the Cubs Skybox that is literally directly behind homeplate. I was sitting in a seat that was in line with homeplate and the pitchers mound.
The Skybox is fairly weak in terms of other facilities in the city but who gives a crap....its the Cubs and its was a 3 hit shutout. Watching Harden, Marmol and Woody dominate from that angle was amazing. (Last year when I was there it was Hart's MLB debut)
Anyways, the reason I am recaping is because last year when we sat there we realized we were next to the two owners boxes and I was really close to McDonough and Hendry. Well, IMO, today was a little cooler because I was sitting about 5 feet from Walt Jocketty. I have no real personal feelings at all towards the man but I thought it was pretty cool to watch his reactions to moments in the game (he never had an emotion) and just admire what a life he must live. It got a little cooler when Hendry dropped by and they spoke while Walt ate for about an hour.
Anyways, I am about a 15-20 game a year guy but for the last two years I have felt like a king sitting in the suite behind homeplate. Even better, IMO, is that I could care less about Walt, Jim or the Skybox and all I really cared about is the W. The game was magnificent tonight and to quote one of my favorite rivals on this site PITCHING IS KING and it was on display tonight.
