I don't win things. Rarely to never. Door prizes are offered to the person sitting next to me at meetings. I get Bingo a second after all of the prizes are claimed. My scratch off tickets have always been duds. I'm not saying I'm unlucky, just that I don't win things.
A few weeks ago, I, along with several of my friends, entered my name in a drawing to buy tickets to the National League Division Series, should the Cubs clinch the division. Then I put it out of my mind, assuming that millions of people had also entered their names.
Well, this Tuesday, I got an email stating that I was lucky enough to win the opportunity to purchase up to two (2) tickets to a playoff game at Wrigley Field! So this Thursday, October 2, I will be heading to Wrigley to watch the Chicago Cubs play in a play off game, an experience that more devoted baseball fans than I have yet to have.
