Next up on Septmeber 25, 2016, was Indian Lakes Resort. I had a great show selling two high-priced Mantles to a new customer from Oswego.
Across from the McDonald's on Clark was a parking lot where Cubs players used to park and it contained a doughnut shop. That area is under construction as well. The police had Clark Street closed off so it was very hard to walk through this area.
The game was awesome! The Cubs jumped on former Cub Jeff Samardzija early creating a lot of electricity in the stadium. It seemed like we were mostly standing up and high-fiving everyone around us. This was my third Cubs playoff game, having gone in 1984 and 2015. The Cubs won all three playoff games I attended. Though, I have to admit, that I am a pessimistic Cubs fan and did not expect the Cubs to win the series against the Giants. When the Cubs won the series against the Giants, I did not think they would get past the next team up, the Dodgers. Obviously, I was wrong.
