Football At Wrigley Is A-Go

2010_01_14_Wrigley_Field_Football.JPG Get your tailgating gear ready. All that talk about a Northwestern-Illinois match-up at Wrigley? It's finally coming to fruition. The Chicago Cubs and Northwestern will announce tomorrow that the November 20th game will be played at the Friendly Confines. It'll be the first time football has been played at Wrigley in 40 years (since the Bears moved to Soldier Field). One plus: without the need for a jumbotron, hopefully the views from the rooftops will be clear unlike the kerfuffle over the 2009 NHL Winter Classic (assuming the rooftops are open).
