Something I really appreciate about the Cublogoverse versus the mainstream media is the personal touch. We not only get the news, rumors, commentary, etc. about the Cubs, but we get it from real people. Yes, yes, the writers for the Tribune are “real” people, and I’m sure they’re mighty fine folks, too. But generally, the writers in the Cublogoverse are more accessible – and I mean that in a literary sense. The simply feel more real.

So occasionally, I’m going to post cheesy things like this because, well, I kind of like it. Al from Bleed Cubbie Blue recently posted about attending a skating event at Wrigley Field – it followed the NHL Winter Classic hockey event, held at Wrigley. I thought it was a pretty cool read, because it’s not something I got the chance to experience myself.

The community skate on the ice rink at Wrigley Field was perhaps the coolest thing I’ve ever done, and that’s not overhyping it, either. Bleed Cubbie Blue.

Lots of pictures and a description of the event there.
