Mets at Cubs – 2017

September 17, 2017

The season had so much promise back in April. And then the usual injuries, and maybe some bad luck, bit the Mets. It’s been a long season, one that feels like it’s never going to end. Except for the Mets still had to visit Chicago for their yearly series at Wrigley. You never know how […]

Mets/Cubs – Wrigley 2016

July 21, 2016

When the Mets last played at Wrigley Field, they swept the Cubs to win the NLCS and advanced to the World Series. Game four of that series is quite possibly one of the best sporting events I ever witnessed live and in person. More recently,¬†the Cubs and Mets played a few weeks ago at Citi […]

Going to the NLCS!

October 16, 2015

It’s been quite a season and the Mets are riding on into the NLCS to play the Cubs! This Mets team is a completely different team than the one I saw at Wrigley in May and it’s just an amazin’ time to be a Mets fan. Your browser does not support iframes. I’m still a […]

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 […]

Schedule Release Day is the Best Day

September 12, 2012

Whether it’s baseball, hockey or football, I always get excited when a season schedule is announced, especially since I don’t live in the city of my main team. I like to circle when NHL teams from the East come to Chicago. In baseball, I have wild dreams of making a bunch of road trips to […]

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-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 Bleachers¬†at the corner of Sheffield and Waveland Tuesday – Dark Horse Tap and Grille […]
