Chicago Cubs announcers Len Kasper (left) and Bob Brenley, giving the Wine Curmudgeon a run for his sartorial money. That's a helluva brown pinstripe that Kasper is wearing. The occasion? The Cubs and WGN, which broadcasts the team's games, held a 1948 throwback game on Thursday to celebrate the station's 60 years of showing Cubs' games.
And why is this post on a wine blog? Because the Wine Curmudgeon has two great weaknesses: white Burgundy and the Cubs. (Note to the faint of heart: The link includes a reference to former manager Lee Elia's X-rated tirade against Cubs fans.)
Plus, I'm a sucker for fedoras.
