Double play

At least the washout of tonight's Cubs-White Sox game worked out well for someone.

Also scheduled this evening in Wrigleyville was the opening night of the Just For Laughs Chicago comedy festival, a preview screening of Harold Ramis' new comedy Year One.

Shortly after the game was called on account of rain, I was walking through that very rainstorm into the Music Box Theatre for the movie when who walks in behind me but Chicago Cubs television play-by-play man Len Kasper. He'd wasted no time making the half-mile trek from Wrigley Field, still sporting his blue WGN-TV polo shirt as we came in from the rain.

Unfortunately for some of us inside the Music Box, there was also scattered rain falling inside the landmark theater, but nothing we couldn't handle.
