2018 Cubs Convention

Anyone else here going to the 2018 Cubs convention? I will be off work that weekend, so I will be buying my tickets soon. Also, this will be my first time at the convention. If anyone here has gone in the past, some advice for newbies would be appreciated. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-J320A using Tapatalk

Re: NEW New Wrigley Nomz thread

I went to the game against Milwaukee on Monday night, and I had the "Bao to the Pork" sandwich from Pork & Mindy's in the bleachers (Platform 14). Loved the combination of flavors, and I would definitely order it again. The sandwich also included some barbecue kettle chips on the side,...

Re: Wrigley Renovations and Related Wrigleyville Stuff

They will also have postgame press conferences for the Cubs home games on the screen. When I went to the park after Saturday's game, the inning-by- inning final score was shown, along with other videoboard content shown to fans inside Wrigley Field. On non-game days, the screen will be used for movi...

Re: World Series Swag Thread

Has anybody seen replicas of the world series banner anywhere? Yep - got one at the game on Wednesday night. The banner measures 60" x 26" and is made of very light material. There are grommets on the left side of the banner, so the banner can be hung on a flag pole. The Mastercard logo i...

Re: NEW New Wrigley Nomz thread

Had a the Joe Tinker sausage (veal saltimbocca sausage with sage mustard, crispy onions, and Swiss cheese) from the Hot Doug's stand on Monday night in the bleachers. Very tasty, and definitely more filling than a hot dog! I also decided to bring in my own peanuts and snack items to the game. Since ...

I decided to try visiting the website on Internet Explorer, and was able to access the presale website - apparently, there were problems accessing the website on Firefox. For some of the games, StubHub is actually cheaper than the Cubs presale price. Right now, the Mets game on September 14 is $68 f...

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather

It was another day in the 60s in Chicago today, and the high at O'Hare Airport is forecast to be 74 degrees. Depending on how long the morning fog stays around, Chicago could tie or break the all-time February high temperature (75 degrees)!

Re: Cubs single game tickets on sale February 24...

I really don't think you need to pony up for the presale for a Cubs Mets game on a Thursday but I could be wrong. Doesn't strike me as an instant sellout Since it's only one bleacher ticket, I'm willing to pay an extra $5 to the game to avoid the hassles of the VWR and secure my ticket. The game di...

Re: New extra inning rule being tested

If the score was tied 0-0 entering the 10th with one pitcher (or pitchers) throwing a perfect game, would that go away since there is now a runner on base? Would the runner who gets to go to 2nd have an official at bat, and would their on-base percentage increase? This opens up an unneeded can of wo...

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather

I'm pretty sure all ice and snow will be north of Chicago so my vote would be the back roads. I can attest to that, as the snow is melting pretty quickly in Chicagoland. The snow will probably be gone by Monday night with the rain and rising temperatures tonight and sunshine tomorrow. Downtown Chic...
