Go Cubs Go! Go Cubs Go! Hey Chicago waddya say, the cubs are gonna win today!
Chicago has the most loyal and spirited fans I have ever seen! It adds to the experience of going to the game. All summer long we've heard about the Cubs, seen their apparel everywhere, and even heard the Cubs song at the Rascal Flatts concert. So we were pretty excited to get decked out in Cubs gear and go the the famous Wrigley Field for a game. Wrigley Field itself is like a museum. It was built in 1914, almost 100 years ago. So this is the 96th season. It is the second oldest stadium (to Fenway Park, built in 1912). This field was where Babe Ruth his his "called shot" where he pointed in the bleachers. After each game they fly a white or blue flag above the scoreboard that has W or L for win or loss.
View of the field. You can't really see but across the street from the stadium they have bleachers on the rooftops of these old buildings. You can get tickets to watch the game from the rooftop and have all you can eat food.
After the game, one of our friends we worked with in San Diego two summers ago showed us around Wrigleyville a little big. He's from Chicago so he knows all the cool facts. Wrigleyville is such a cool place! There are SO many bars/pubs/restaurants that you could never eat at them all. After the game people just hung around at all these places and had a good time!
