A couple of weeks ago, I posted asking for advice on sitting in the bleachers at Wrigley - here.
I wanted to thank everyone who responded to that post, with a wealth of excellent advice. I had the same experience when I asked for advice before going to the playoff game at Dodger Stadium last October - great advice from all of you, and one of the great values of Bleed Cubbie Blue.
Of course, it rained cats and dogs before the game that day, so we had to improvise on the "when to arrive" part. We got wet enough as it was. We ended up sitting in the upper centerfield bleachers with a lot of Indians fans next to us, which was a pain for many innings, but got MUCH better late. As you know, it was one of the great Cubs games this season - big comeback, reminiscent of the comeback game against the Rockies last year. If anyone saw a W flag in the upper centerfield bleachers after the game that day, that was us.
I tried to stop by and say Hi to Al and "Doggie Stalker" that day. I think that I remember what Al looks like from pictures here, and I didn't see him. And without spotting him, I did not have a hope of finding the rest of his entourage. Were you all at the ballpark that day?
