Long Live Wrigley!

I recently read that the "new" Yankee Stadium will be ready for the 2009 MLB season. My initial thought was "another one bites the dust". My next thought was "thank goodness for Wrigley"!

Yesterday I posted an opinion about Top 10 events we love to see come around every year. Today I'm thinking of those classic venues of sports, and in particular Wrigley Field. Being a guy from the South, it is a huge deal for me to say that I have had the opportunity to take in the experience of a day at Wrigley (and there's a lot to take in)! Most importantly, you gotta "root,root,root, for the Cubbies"! There's the total atmosphere of Wrigleyville, the shops, the Harry statue, the 3 piece band out front, the famous facade, the crowd, the bleachers, and of course "The Ivy" (am I gushing yet?)! It is no cliche when you hear "there's no place like Wrigley Field". And where else can you sing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and get chill bumps? Awesome! If you love America's game and the rich tradition of the sport, you just have to get to Wrigley! While you're there, have a "brock" and a beer for me!
