This evening I found myself getting off the El here :
A friend, you see—an old, old friend—brought her son and his friend to Chicago this week, and they got tickets to what passes for baseball south of Madison St. Fortunately, the Yankees were in town, and even with Jeter sitting tonight out, the Sox were darned.
The home team got both their runs from this fourth-inning homer by Alexei Ramirez:
The Yankees still beat them 3-2.
The Cubs won tonight, lifting themselves back above .400 (ouch), while the Sox' back-to-back losses have them three games out of .500. As we all sweltered in the 28°C heat (and 22°C dewpoint), we wished it were October, until we realized that no one will be playing baseball in Chicago in October. The Yankees, though, they probably will still have a few games left.
 Yes, Wikipedia really has an entry on each El stop in Chicago.
