Most sports fans remember the infamous NFC Division Playoff game on New Years Eve 1988 between the Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears in which fog rolled in off of Lake Michigan, wreaking havoc on fans watching the game, announcers trying to call it, and even referees trying to sort out the action.  Same Lake, different sport.  The Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs are currently mired in a foggy mess on the North Side of Chicago at Wrigley Field.  Best told in a video and a series of tweets by Chicago Cubs beat writers writers Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune and Carrie Muskat of MLB.com as well as fans and other media:

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
