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 […]

Mets Sweep Cubs, Going to World Series!

October 22, 2015

Last night is a night that I will never forget. The Mets beat the Cubs 8-3 to sweep the NLCS to advance to the World Series. I know the Mets were in the World Series in 2000, but this is different. I’m a working adult now, as opposed to a senior in college, and have […]

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 […]

May 12, 2015

At Monday’s Mets/Cubs game, I just so happened to have my camera focused on Juan Lagares at first base. It paid off for me when he stole second: >

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 […]

Victory Lap Around Wrigley Field

May 12, 2013
Tags: ,

Several months ago I registered for the May 11 Race to Wrigley 5K. I’m not a very good distance runner, but I ran one 5K last summer and enjoyed it and decided I’d run one 5K a month during the summer of 2013. Shortly after signing up, Nik and I started running in the morning to […]

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 […]
