It really isn’t much of a stretch for me really. The day starts with an afternoon game at the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. It’s a warm, beautiful day, the sun is shining, the bleacher bunnies are in full bloom, and the Cubs are playing the White Sox. I sit back and relax until some drunk Sox fan tells me how they know how to win the World Series like they have the magic formula in a can. I ignore him cause obviously he doesn’t understand the joy of watching baseball in one the best stadiums in the country. Of course, Carlos Zambrano throws a perfect game and I catch a home run ball from Geovany Soto.
I quickly leave Wrigley and hop on the red line straight south to the Roosevelt stop and go see my Chicago Bears play Monday Night Football against the Green Bay Packers. The entire nation watches as Matt Forte muscles his way to 100 yards rushing….in the first half! Grossman throws a beautiful bomb to Devin Hester who takes it to the house. The Bears destroy the Packers 39-0 with five touchdowns and two safeties.
For me, that would be my perfect doubleheader. Now let’s hear yours! There are a few rules, the doubleheader has to be possible, although its ok if it’s highly improbable like sports played at different times of the year.
