Re: season ticket wait list.....

I signed up for the waiting list in '04. Finally bought tix in '10, got crushed in the market (I live ~600 miles away) and let them go. Immediately got back in line and now I'm at 33,556.

Re: Wrigley Renovation Thread

and i was hoping they were actually going to restore that groundskeepers cottage and get the 35 layers of whitish greyish paint off of it but it looks like it's going to stay that way. maybe it always was but it'd look 1000x better as just brick. appears that they didn't bother to retouch the photo...

Re: Wrigley Renovation Thread

back in ye olde times the marquee was in prime position to be seen from the streetcar. you get the same effect now from the clark bus. imagine seeing "playing here" and jumping off to buy tix.

Re: Post Season Ticket Sources

Does anyone know what the process is like for Standing Room only seats & is it different for each stadium? Can you only stand in the upperdeck or can you stand in spots in the 100 level? Do you have to get there super early? best places to stand are in the back of 200 at the corners where you a...

Re: September Other Games Thread

Why is the Cardinals/Reds game blacked out on MLB.tv? My suggestion is to turn your tv onto Fox That is what I thought too, but Fox is showing the Blue Jays vs. Yankees. I'm only 50 miles south of Chicago and haven't ever seen the Cardinals or Reds blacked out before. Strange. FOX is only showing S...

Re: Potpourri Thread

Stunned to find that the original CompuServe forums still exist, six years after the online service was decommissioned.

The whole thing is a time warp. Saw some posters there who had to have been around since '79.

Sucks this wasn't a night game, like most Saturday games seem to be everywhere but Wrigley and/or if it's a national broadcast game (which this wasn't). The Reds make an effort to stage all Saturday games in April during daytime hours. No rain in Cincinnati for the last two hours. Radar clear now. ...

Spiegel and Goff just asked Hoyer about Russell...he didn't not say he'd be up soon. Basically said they're using him there because they're pretty thin at 2B right now. Also said that Castro is the SS for the foreseeable future and that Russell playing 2B is a move that is much easier to make in th...

They just changed the script on the front from CHICAGO to CUBS last year didn't they?

That's the road alternate. CHICAGO is still the standard.

1988 version on the left, 1994 on the right.

The 1988 polyester is much thicker, much more coarse.

Re: Cubs, Reds to wear 1990 uniforms 4/24

Home changes were subtle to be sure.

The walking bear showed up in 1997. The last of the Cub "faces" debuted in 1994, and that set featured a thinner pinstripe and lost the sleeve trim. 1990 brought belts and buttons, the first real changes since 1979.
