I lived in Chicago for almost 20 years - we tried to go to as many Cubs games as we could. There's nothing better than skipping out of work early to go to a 1:00 game! Not much baseball in Las Vegas - although we are close to Mesa and get to go to spring training most years. At least I still get to watch them on WGN and they usually come to Vegas once a year for our Big League Weekend. They will be here April 1st.
Keep believing - they will make it some year!
