Afternoon Shift

Opening Day video: Chicago's #1 Cubs fan (or at least the drunkest)

UPDATE: Listen to Colleen Henneman talk about Opening Day 2012 on Afternoon Shift

I went up to Wrigley Field this morning to revel in another season of Chicago Cubs baseball. Wrigleyville comes alive (or dies a little) when the Cubs' season begins and Opening Day offers fans a chance to start drinking just after sunrise.

I caught up with one fan who claims she was the first person in line for bar time this morning. She also claims to be the biggest Cubs fan on the planet. And she has a pink Cubs hat, which separates her from the pack.  Introducing...Henneman.

It's no Sarah Jindra traffic report, but you gotta love Henneman.
