I’ve never seen a Cards/Cubs game from Wrigley Field.
In fact, I’ve never seen Wrigley Field.
For a myriad of reasons, some trite, some not, I’ve always missed out on baseball’s funnest rivalry when it takes place in northern Illinois. Sometimes it was bad timing, most of the time it was lack of friends (in Chicago and otherwise, I suppose) inviting me. But that’s all in the past now… I’m going to the game Sunday.
I’ve gotten all sorts of interesting feedback from veterans of Wrigley Field the past day or so, but really, I just want to make sure I limit the drinking to the point where I don’t partake in a urinal slide.
If you’ve got other suggestions, feel free to make them in the comments. I even believe FWC, who had a spectacular fail this week when he produced exactly 0 words and 0 pictures of Cardinals related stuff when they were literally 2 miles from his house in San Diego, will be in town. So I’ll be able to admonish him in person.
Here’s to you having a big weekend as well, doing it is, well, whatever you do. Also, thank a veteran or active service member. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice so I could guzzle Old Style and get a farmer’s tan in the world’s largest gay bar. It’s the least you can do.
