Last year, I sat at Opening Night alone, shivering and a little terrified. We had just moved to Chicago a couple of weeks before then, and I didn’t know anyone to go to the game with. How things have changed! I have come to love Chicago over the past year, though I am completely over the cold right now. This year, I sat at Opening Night at Wrigley Field with a friend, still shivering but no longer afraid.
