Wrigley Field has been around a long time

From YouTube, via the Uni Watch blog, here's six and a half minutes of home movie footage shot at Wrigley Field. It starts off with 1930 Flag Day ceremonies prior to a game against the Boston Braves, including the raising of a 1929 NL championship pennant, and then switches to 1929 World Series action against the Philadelphia A's (either Game 1 or Game 2, both of which were Cubs losses).

Now here's a collection for you

I got an e-mail from someone who was interested in this ticket stub of mine...

...because he's attempting to collect ticket stubs from every 2001 Diamondbacks game. Unfortunately, I'm not willing to part with my stub at present, but I said I'd publicize his collection here. So if anyone out there has some 2001 D-Backs stubs (home or away, obviously) that they're willing to part with, e-mail JonB99.

We can learn things from the space program

During our 2004 trip, my watchband wouldn't have gotten broken on the corner of that vending machine at that rest area on Interstate 94 in Michigan if we'd been wearing diapers! Something to think about for next time.
