Where were you 30 years ago today?

I woke up this morning and after grabbing a cup of coffee was excited to spend a Sunday morning enjoying some RnR and leisure time reading the Sunday NY times...one of the great weekly moments in life!  Even better than that was the headline article in today's Sports section!!!  It was 30 years ago today that the Cubs played an epic game vs. the Philadelphia Phillies.  I remember the day well;  after coming home from school I did as I usually did which was to turn on the television and catch the afternoon game being played out at Wrigley (do those memories make you miss "day" baseball"? I remember the game playing out over many hours!  Massive homerun after massive homerun.  If memory is correct, the game lasted until somewhere between 5 & 6pm?  Truly a baseball gem of a game.  The only problem was in the end it was a Cubs loss...but a truly courageous attempted comeback.  Enjoy the article.
