The Mets/Cubs Debacle

June 10, 2014

I love the Mets. I look forward to schedule release day every year to see when they’ll come and play the Cubs. (Playing the White Sox in 2013 was just a bonus.) No matter how good or bad the team has been before coming to town, I always plan to go. In my seven years […]

Mets Take Two from Cubs

May 21, 2013

Few things beat an easy walk to a baseball stadium. It’s even better when I can take a short stroll to see my team play. So this past weekend I took in three Mets–Cubs games at Wrigley Field. The team won on Friday, lost on Saturday and won again on Sunday. Friday May 17, a […]

A Visiting Fan’s Guide to Wrigley Field

February 6, 2013

In what is a long overdue post, I wanted to share my visitor’s fan guide to Wrigley Field. I moved to Chicago in June of 2007 and saw my first Cubs game earlier in 2007 when I was in town apartment hunting. Since then, I’ve lived within a mile walk to the stadium and have […]

Mets Lose Wrigley Opener

May 25, 2011

My day started off really well with employee appreciate week at work and an air hockey table temporarily brought in. From work I went and met up with some other Mets fans at Merkle’s before the game. The sun was still out, but I knew it was going to get cold. I just didn’t expect […]

Cubs vs. Rockies at Coors Field

April 19, 2011

While out in Colorado for a wedding, Nik and I decided to catch a Rockies game with a few of our friends. The Rockies were playing the Cubs, and since we live in Chicago, we decided we’d root for the Cubs. Also, having Ryan Dempster on my fantasy baseball team helped me root for them. […]

My Weekend at Wrigley Field for Mets/Cubs

September 6, 2010

No matter how good or bad the Mets might be playing, I always look forward to their games against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. It’s the one time of year that I don’t have to travel out of town to see them play. This year is a little different in that both teams are playing […]

White Sox vs. Cubs + Blackhawks = Heaven?

June 14, 2010

I had never been to a Sox/Cubs game and when I saw a YouSwoop deal for $79 rooftop tickets, I thought it was a good opportunity to go. It also ended up being a night where the Cubs honored the Blackhawks for winning the Stanley Cup. The team, including coaches and other staff all walked […]

Cubs/Phillies at Wrigley

August 29, 2008

The other night Nik and I were talking about going to “Blackhawks Night” at an upcoming White Sox game. He said he’d rather see another Cubs game before the season is over. So I looked at their schedule and saw the Phillies were coming to town and thought, this is great, I can finally root […]
