Chicago Day Downpour

Wow, is it raining. I've noticed that my jacket and hat get a lot wetter on the days it rains. Fortunately, most of Wrigley Field is indoors, as is everything else today, with one very obvious exception - the Jays. The White Sox should really have a dome - it's so inconsiderate that we came all this way and they can't even build a state of the art billion dollar dome for our comfort? 

Wrigley Field, however, is very cool. There is so much history within the walls of the park, and our tour took us all over the ballpark - it's not often you get to walk through one of these facilities without having to share it with 40,000 other people. We were taken into the press box, the visiter's clubhouse, the Cubs' dugout, and amongst all the various seats and bleachers.  

Afterwards, we went to the adjacent Cubs Store, where things might have been purchased.
