Hat Kicking Time

Happy Birthday, Bob. Though he's probably not reading this blog. :-)

We (Ellen, Ryan, Bob, and I) went to the Cubs game (and the stadium club buffet before) for Bob's birthday. From whatever source they had, they knew it was his birthday today, so Mike (the stadium club manager) wanted to arrange to sing for Bob. The problem -- it was a Sunday buffet so there was a dessert bar included, so they didn't have other bakers working today to arrange a little cake. So, Mike got a slice of Snickers Pie from the buffet, arranged a couple candles, and brought the psuedo-cake and he and our server sang Happy Birthday.

Bob reacted by throwing his hat to the floor and kicking it at Mike.

OK, you'd have to have seen what's gone on the past couple of days at the Cubs games to know why that was funny.

Anyway, the Cubs played well today, the Braves didn't, and the Cubs won big, 10-1.

While sitting at the club and watching fans arrives, I saw one guy wearing a T-shirt with "She's So Lucky" on it, and a pointing hand. The problem: he was walking on the other side of his presumed girlfriend, so the hand was pointing at everyone else who wasn't actually with him.

It may have been more accurate that way anyway.


  • Well, actually it wasn't Mike who got the Snickers pie--it was our server on Mike's direction. I happened to be at the dessert table and he was getting chocolate cake for Bob. I said Bob was looking forward to a piece of cheesecake, so he reached for the Snickers pie. I wondered about that since the cheesecake was a little farther down the line. Oh, well. Then Bob comes up--I tell him to go sit down, so of course he immediately knows that they are fixing him something. Tried to keep it somewhat of a surprise, but what was I supposed to do?

  • I had seen the clips of the Peniella incident so would have enjoyed Bob's throwing and kicking his hat. Wish we had a picture of that. I'm sure Bob enjoyed the entire day. Keep the blog posts coming. I really enjoy them.
