Haiku Mania: Catching Up With The Cubs

Haiku Mania: Catching Up With The Cubs
On April 18th the paid attendance was 26,000+ but fewer than 2000 fans were in the stands

 

Just a single haiku, highlighting one terrible fact, for each of the games the Cubs have played since they were rained out on April 10th. They played great baseball on April 18th for a victory to end their first home stand, but the Chicago weather was the story that day. Click on the score if you dare to check out the details.
