Retiring #31 Tomorrow

I am happy to say that I will be in attendance at tomorrow's Cubs game, and more importantly I'll be there for the retirement of #31 for Ferguson Jenkins and Greg Maddux.  Each of these pitchers is deserving of this honor, particularly Jenkins for his multiple 20-win seasons with the Cubs.  Seeing Maddux honored is always bittersweet, thinking what could have been if Larry Himes hadn't low-balled him with a contract offer in 1992.  But tomorrow is about a celebration, and I look forward to the festivities (not to mention a third straight Cubs win).
