Yesterday's Train Was Full of Bears, and One Idiot
I hopped on a CTA train last night at about six, anticipating getting home at the usual time, but then the train kept getting more and more crowded. I was like "What's the deal? Where did all these people come from? Thank god I got a seat." I was still puzzled until a bunch of people in full Cubs regalia started squeezing into the car. DUH. Cubs game last night. People were headed to Wrigleyville. I got home about ten minutes later than usual, but, as I'm told, it's better than getting stuck on the train after the game, when lots of tipsy, jubilant (or morose, depending) fans crowd the rails. Um, go Cubs?
