Postcards from Wrigley Field

I can walk to Wrigley Field from my place and it's a shame that I haven't been to a game in a while. Finally, that has been rectified and last Sunday, Tom, Jon, Mike and I went to the Cubs vs. Yankees game. Apparently the Yankees haven't played at Wrigley in 35 years so this series has some history behind it. I was sitting between Mike and Tom, both Yankee fans and first timers at Wrigley. Unfortunately, the Cubbies lost but nevertheless, we had a great time.

So here are my photos but sadly, it doesn't properly convey the beauty of this stadium.

Let's play ball!

The Sears Tower (yes I still call it that) and the Chicago skyline

The green roof is the Yankees dugout. It says Welcome to the friendly confines of Wrigley Field

Billy Corrigan of Smashing Pumpkins sang Take Me Out of the Ballgame that night
