Go Cubs Go! [+ a betting game}

Me & the Wees was {finally} supposed to go live this morning, but I have to publish this post first...

Last night, we joined 6 of our friends at Principal Park {iCubs stadium} on Line Dr. in Des Moines to watch the Chicago Cubs play in the Wild Card game.  For my Cubs obsessed husband {seriously, he has recorded, and watched, every single game since we got DVR} & friends, this was a big {BIG!} deal!  And the night could not have been more perfect...70 degrees, bright stadium lights, & surrounded by 2000 of the Cubs biggest fans.  We debated about going {we had the kids, I had a photoshoot, it was a week night, etc.} but I am so glad for this spontaneous night.

And because betting makes everything better {I'm joking! but it was super fun!}...
Every time a player strikes out put a dollar in the cup and pass the cup to the next person
Every time a player walks or hits a single, it's a push, so pass the cup without adding $1
Every time a player hits a double/triple take $1 out and pass the cup to the next person
Every time a player hits a homerun {& at the end of the game} the person holding the cup gets to take all the cash. 

See Super Bowl betting game here {which will likely be used for the World Series game should we get that far}

That beer was empty.  Our friends think it's hilarious to corrupt our children... ;)

One of my kids like Cubbie Bear significantly more than the other. ;)


  1. That betting game sounds like so much fun! I love it!

  2. What a fun betting game! And love that you got to watch it there. Such a great game, GO CUBS!

    1. It was the perfect atmosphere! I wonder if they'll open it up for the playoff games?!

  3. I love the idea of the betting game! So fun! I'm going to have to do this with my family at the next game we go to. Your poor daughter was not having the cubbie bear :D

    1. Do's so much fun! Plus you could do it with quarters or whatever you want! Fun way to stay in the game if baseball it's your thing!

  4. Aw what a fun night! Go Cubs!
