Focus on Wrigley

By Olivia Leigh in Miscellaneous on Apr 23, 2007 3:45PM


We were fortunate enough to find ourselves at the Cubs-Cards game yesterday at Wrigley. While some of us don't track baseball like it’s our livelihood, we always look forward to a game at Wrigley, especially on a balmy, sunny day. Smack dab in the middle of a residential neighborhood with the sound of the El rattling on the tracks nearby, the stadium has such a small, friendly, community feel that helps to make it the greatest place in the country to watch a game (in our humble opinion). Although the Cubs lost in a heart-breaking extra inning, we are the perpetual Cubs optimists, always naively believing that they will be able to work some magic this year.

And you? Is Wrigley the best stadium in the country? What are your hopes for the Cubs this season?
