Chicago - Wrigley Field Visit / Cubs in World Series
Statue outside the Ticket Office
While this Lowcountry native must confess to being a longtime Atlanta Braves baseball fan, the WGN television station broadcast enough Cubs games over the years to secure at least some interest. So when I was in the Windy City for a visit during the National League (NL) pennant chase, heading down to Wrigley Field for a visit was a must. After waiting in line for three hours for Game One tickets of the NL Championship Series, we found out that the game was officially a sell out and no more tickets were available. What I did secure while near the 'Friendly Confines' was a great feel for the spirit of Chicago Cubs fanes and their thirst for going to the World Series for the first time in 71 years. Go Cubs!
