I certainly picked the right day to stay at home - a little bit of rain in the morning was enough to cancel batting practice, and with the wind blowing in, nothing came out of the ballpark during the game. So I didn't miss a thing - got to watch the game from the comfort of my home. And since I live in the neighborhood, with the window to my deck open, I could hear the crowd noise a second or two before I saw the play causing it on TV. A little weird but kinda cool too.
And when Harry Caray was still alive, the few times I was at home on gameday, it was very cool during the seventh inning stretch to stand on my deck and hear his booming voice over the PA system. Least I think it was over the PA system - with Harry, you could never be sure...
"Awwwll right, lemme hear ya. Ah one, ah two, ah three. Take me out to the ballgame..."
