Took my 11 year-old nephew to his first ballgame this night. Tried to get him into baseball, into the Mets. Then we sat through this rain-soaked monstrosity. My nephew's now a skateboard punk- rocker who could care less about baseball.

Izzy gave us everything he could that night, but the Cubbies were just too tough as Ryan Sandberg put on display his home run power.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
