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 Are Grand in Finale

June 28, 2012

Wednesday’s Mets game is why I, and I’m sure many others, have stayed loyal to the Mets. Each game is a new one and you never know what to expect. I was being questioned if I was going to go to the final game of this Mets-Cubs series. Of course I was! It was never […]

Tired, Sloppy Play Leads to Loss

June 26, 2012

It seems that over the last few years whenever the Mets come to Chicago to play the Cubs, they always struggle. Monday’s opener in the series was no different. The team arrived to Chicago at 4am following their Sunday night game in New York against the Yankees. I’m sure the Mets were dealing with the […]

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 […]

A Light at the End of the Tunnel

February 9, 2011

It’s a busy time for me at work with college basketball. The season is flying which is nice, but I’m ready for some baseball. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel. There’s a lot of news regarding Mets ownership lately, but, I’m not spending time talking about it one way or another. It […]

A Fond Farewell to the 2010 Mets Season

October 4, 2010

Saying this season was a disappointment is a big understatement. There were so many things that went wrong, that it will probably take a lot to get back to being a winning team. I’m not going to rant about who should stay or go, but clearly there need to be some big changes. I think […]

That's a Wrap!

October 5, 2009

I wish I could be more creative with this title, but I got nothing. Kinda like the Mets when they got swept by the Nats! Anway, I’m not gonna dwell. The Mets ended the season at home on a winning note and that’s all we could have asked for…for the last two seasons! For me, […]

Blackhawks Night at U.S. Cellular Field

September 5, 2009

Friday night was Blackhawks Night at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. As a Blackhawks season ticket holder, Nik and I had the opportunity to buy tickets for the event which also got us into the White Sox/Red Sox game. The whole ticket package was a great deal: special event t-shirt, admission […]
