Chicago Cubs win home opener versus Colorado Rockies, 4 - 0
I attended the Cubs' home opener for the second time in my life.
The weather was atrocious (38 degrees and rainy), but it was offset by our seats (club level directly behind home plate) and Ted Lilly's no-hitter through six and two thirds innings.
Ted Lilly was masterful - I have a confession. I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but I feel safe among you. Come close. I’ve never seen a no-hitter. I know, I know, Carlos Zambrano pitched one last year. Unfortunately that game was not on television for me in North Carolina. I once made plans to watch the Braves on TBS when I was in college as they were facing Randy Johnson. I went to the store with the wife that evening and then forgot to turn the game on. Result? Perfect game!!! The closest I’ve seen is Zambrano against the Diamondbacks a few years ago, but yesterday I was holding out hope in Ted Lilly.
