Mets-Cubs Pre-game Meetups

June 24, 2012

Monday is the day. The day the Mets open a three-game series at Wrigley Field and I will be at each game. Like years past, I encourage Mets fans to gather before the games. The locations I’m thinking: Monday – Murphy’s BleachersĀ at the corner of Sheffield and Waveland Tuesday – Dark Horse Tap and Grille […]


Mets vs. Cubs + The Cold = A Loss

May 27, 2011

Game 3 of the Mets/Cubs series was by the far the coldest. I even had to break out long underwear. TMI? Once again, Nik and I were supposed to be in the 400’s but we sat in some empty seats on the 200 level and had a great view of everything, even R.A. Dickey tripping […]


Mets Win Rain-Shortened Game

May 27, 2011

The second game of the Mets/Cubs series was only better than game one because the Mets won. The weather was colder, our seats were under cover (section 223ish), but then the rain came and the game was called in the bottom of the 7th giving the Mets a 7-4 win. Dillon Gee had a rough […]


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 […]


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 […]


2009 Winter Classic at Wrigley Field

January 2, 2009

About half of my New Years day was spent at the “Frozen Confines” of Wrigley Field for the NHL Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks. The day started around 9:15 at Murphy’s Bleachers. Around 11, Nik and I made our way into the game. Despite the outcome, it was one […]


My Field Trip to Wrigley

December 21, 2008

It’s not really much of a field trip since it’s in my neighborhood, but regardless, I ventured to Wrigley on Thursday afternoon to check out the Winter Classic Prep. Here a few pictures I took, but since then there has been a lot more progress made. Again, I cannot wait for this game. I just […]
