I hear people say things like " the only reason that people go to Wrigley all the time is because of the atmosphere". While I don't like the douchers who only go because of their trust fund parent's have season tickets or a luxury box, I don't see what's wrong with having such a great atmosphere at the ballpark that people come just to see the stadium and surrounding neighborhood. If I only had a few weeks to live, and could do whatever I wanted, I would spend the last few weeks hanging around Wrigleyville and going to as many games as I could. Even in snow, rain, sleet, and freezing temperatures, I have never not had a great time at Wrigley. I don't feel ashamed that I would still rather go to Wrigley and watch the Cubs lose day after day, than go to any other park and cheer for any other team.
Come see the Cubs. We've got uniforms and everything.
I sure love to see them win but a bad day at Wrigley beats a great day at the office. Especially if you are lucky enough to have someone you love to share the experience. Never gets old to me and I doubt it ever will.
Amen brother! There's just something magical about it. There's not many things I'm a sentimental sap about but going to Wrigley is one of them. I would love to retire, buy a condo in Wrigleyville, sell a kidney (my liver ain't worth shit) and somehow get season tickets and spend every home game there. I can't wait to take my kids there.
I second all of that! I've only been to Wrigley for a handful of games, but I count myself lucky to have visited one of the most beautiful venues for a game anywhere. The green grass...the ivy...the smell of the stadium on gameday...drinking copious amounts of Old Style beer...I can't wait to get back next season!
