I remember working way late that night, and was racing to catch the 9:45 Rock Island. From the time I left work (City Hall) until the time I got to LaSalle Street station, the Marlins had scored the eight runs. It was the first time I remember being inundated with texts ( back in the day you had to press the 2 three times to make a C.)
I had standing room tickets the next day for game 7 and was busted by a SunTimes reporter, who knew me from work, for taking pictures of distraught Cub fans.
Some of my richest baseball memories.
