Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

wrigley outfieldLet’s try this again, shall we?

The Cubs and Indians were rained out last night, in what proved to be a master stroke of luck for the Wrigleyville area. With the Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup, the party could freely flow around Wrigley Field without the compounding stream of fans leaving the Cubs game (many of whom would have been, like, trying to go home – which would have been impossible).

And Kyle Schwarber is here! And Jake Arrieta is starting! And the Stanley Cup, plus Blackhawks players, will be hanging at Wrigley before the game!
