Where do I spend my playoff time & money?

I live in California and am trying to decide where to go to see CUBS playoff games.  I saw just one game this year - Dempster's 12 strikeout win over Maddux at Wrigley.  I purposely skipped west coast games this year to save travel and ticket money for the playoffs.

I don't think I can afford world series tickets, and I want more of a thrill than the division series, so I've narrowed my choices to NLCS.  Road tickets are about half the price of Wrigley tickets.  We're pretty close to confirming that we won't play PHI inthe first round - and I think we will play them in the NLCS.  So I think these are my choices:

  1. Buy tickets now to both NLCS games 3 and 4 at PHI.  If the CUBS don't make it then I have to deal with selling my game tickets.  If PHI doesn't make it then I'll get ticket refunds but now I've got no game to see.
  2. Buy a ticket to NLCS game 2 at Wrigley.

So what do you suggest?  Is it better to see just one game with your brethren win or lose?  Or see two game amidst the enemy (I sat through two losses at Candlestick in '89 - not a lot of fun)?

THANKS!

John
