Friday morning....3:35 am central.... just arrived in my hotel room in Chicago exactly 10 hours after our 3:35 pm pacific game started in San Diego.
This will be a quick turnaround with our 1:20 pm start today at Wrigley Field.
We changed the crew call from 7:00 am to 8:00 am so we will at least gain one hour of sleep.
After a little less than 4 hours of sleep we will be at Wrigley for the first game of a three-game weekend series with the Cubs.
It really doesn't matter how much sleep our TV crew gets before a Cardinals/Cubs series at Wrigley.
This scenario is the best!
The great rivalry!
I can't wait for the game to begin.
Allow me to summarize today's telecast from San Diego.
We were the only TV feed of the game.
The San Diego crew is fantastic.
We had an excellent telecast.
The atmosphere of the 1/3 sold out Petco Park will not even come close to the atmosphere for TODAY'S telecast.
Cards and Cubs at Wrigley!
