It's been 100 years since the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series. You would think that no one would even go to see them, but you would be wrong! Or do we go to see Wrigley Field? Built in 1914, it's one of the few remaining old-fashioned fields and the only one where the scoreboard is still MANUALLY operated. Can you imagine? And then there's the ivy on the walls instead of gross signs advertising things you don't need. And the roof-top stands across the way. And the 40,000 fans who crowd into the place every game day, who sing along with the National Anthem to start and "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" at the 7th-inning stretch, and who stay afterwards, if we win, to sing "Go, Cubs, Go... Hey, Chicago, wadda say, the Cubs are gonna win today!" And if we didn't win, we still had a great time in our wonderful ballpark. You should see it.
