Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

I have added a new photo page where I will put any pics that I have taken of Wrigley’s construction improvements this off-season. I have a few of the field renovation and a few of some exterior work as well. ikoni

Red Sox Win, Yankees Keep Losing, The Rest Of Us Yawn

Monday, October 29th, 2007

Congratulations are due to the Boston Red Sox for winning their second championship in four years. They were touted as the best team in baseball all year and, for once, the best team in baseball actually finished the season with a win. Despite allowing the Yankees to make thing interesting for them […]

Digging Up The Past

Saturday, October 27th, 2007

While digging up the the old ballpark in order to instal a state of the art drainage system, the crew found the old concrete supports for the Bears goal posts.

The Bears played on the north side from 1921 to 1970. The goal posts were located nearby home plate and the left field […]

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

The Cubs usually are one of the last teams to release their next year’s schedule, sometimes waiting until after the post-season is complete, but we get to have a little glimpse of what we can expect next year today.
The Cubs lead off the year at home against the Brewers and Astros. You have to […]

They Died As They Lived

Sunday, October 7th, 2007

The Cubs season ended they way it began, with “the best free agent on the market” making an out.
At least this year, the Cubs ended their post-season quickly and in a whole unsurprising manner. There was no ball randomly dribbling between someone legs or some bizarre fan interference that ruins some poor kids life. […]

Let’s Play 3!

Saturday, October 6th, 2007

So who has contributed more to the team during the post-season so far?
The guy who showed up for game 3 in a cab…

or in a Cubbie blue Hummer?

The Cubs should be able to knock around Hernandez today. Let’s hope Rich can pitch a complete game shutout. Either way, let’s go get ‘em!!

The Wrigley Experience

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

I went to the Cubs game last night with someone who had never been to Wrigley Field before. It was interesting to see a grown man so giddy about being somewhere new, his inner child was really soaking it all in. It made the experience almost new for me as I had the […]

Concepcion Goes For A Spin In Wrigley

Saturday, August 25th, 2007

I’ve heard of baseball players being superstitious and doing strange things to try and readjust their mojo, but sometimes they just seem like idiotic 20-something boys. Case in point, I give you David Ismael Concepcion.
It was 1976. The Reds were in Chicago in April playing the Cubs, and the only thing colder than the […]
