Mets/Cubs – Wrigley 2015

May 15, 2015

For the second season in a row, the Mets were swept by the Cubs at Wrigley Field. I was there for every game and combined with the cooler temps, it was more miserable than you could imagine. The Mets should have at least won on Wednesday and Thursday. Without further ado, a quick summary and […]


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 […]


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. […]


2011 Baseball Schedules are Out!

September 15, 2010

There are many jokes to be made about how long this Mets season has been over. But I’ll leave those for other people to make. I want to look ahead to the games and series that I’m looking forward to most in 2011. In order of date: April 8 – The Mets home opener vs. […]


Mets vs. Cubs – Games 2 & 3

August 30, 2009

Saturday started out with pre-game festivities at Merkle’s. There were a bunch of Mets fans that came into the bar and it was great. Definitely met some nice people, both from here and from out of town. The game itself, was just another one to forget about. I did have great seats for both games, […]


Mets vs. Cubs Game 1: in Pictures

August 29, 2009

I think we all know how the game went: tight game, we take a lead, bullpen comes in and blows it. At least the rain held off and I sat in the 200 level which made for an easy exit when the game ended. I expect Saturday and Sunday to be a tad better because […]

It’s that time of year…where the Mets come to town to play the Cubbies. I know the Mets aren’t having the greatest season and have had an injury plagued year, but that shouldn’t stop you from coming out to the games to catch up with and meet other Mets fans!! Where: Pre-game meetups to be […]


Three Games, Two Days

April 23, 2008
Tags: , ,

I don’t think I’ve ever summed up two Mets games as bluntly as I’m about to: They lost them both. They arrived to town very early Monday, middle of the night early, and went on to lose two games to the Cubbies. To Ted Lilly, none the less! The only saving grace was to look […]
