Due to the kind act of my step-brother, tomorrow I’ll cross one main item off my sports bucket list.
I’m going to Wrigley Field. And as an added bonus I get to see the Reds play. Life is good.
Going up to Wrigley Field is one of those things along with going to Shea Stadium a few years back, somehow making it to Chavez Ravine, and hitting up Beantown and Fenway Park; I’ve been daydreaming about since I was a kid. So many lull afternoons spent watching WGN growing up because it was the only game on. Wrigley field seemed like this far off mystical place that I was told existed, but I never thought I would be able to record my own experiences about it.
I can’t believe I’m going to get to visit the Steve Bartman seat (Section 4, Row 8, Seat 113). The Cubby Bear and Murphy’s Bleachers.With the places that exist in that city, and the lush sports history that I can’t get enough of; it’s probably a good thing I haven’t allowed myself to discover Chicago until now.
I’ll have a full report on my dispatch to Wrigley Field up sometime soon. This day can’t end quickly enough.
