A friend of ours who grew up in Wisconsin and taught with me in Round Lake many years, Marcy Eaker, has retired and moved to Las Vegas, but is still a big fan of Wisconsin teams wrote on her FaceBook page yesterday that her Milwaukee Brewers, by the sixth inning, looked like they were about to sweep our Chicago Cubs at Miller Field.
She ended by saying, "Sweet."
Well, Marcy, it was a sweep, but definitely wasn't sweet. IT WAS SWEAT!!!
We were at the game and I have never sweat more than I did in the first four innings. I like the idea of retractable domes, especially in this area, but I found a definite drawback yesterday. The structure of the dome seriously cuts into breezes and wind when it is open.
On top of that, humidity was at max and then there were the 40,000 people in the place adding body heat. My hair was wet from the time we got to our seats until about the 7th after they had closed the dome and turned on the air conditioner.
Making it worse, was another poor performance from the Cubs, losing 4-2.
