Your first memories of Wrigley field.

Here are mine.It was in 1950..I was in 8th grade at Angel Guardian Orphanage.Our cottage came in second in our intramural softball league and the first two place teams got a trip to Wrigley Field.
We sat along the left field foul line,about where the infamous Bartman incident occurred.
I was amazed at how good the fielders were....long drives were caught against the fences and hard smashes on the ground were easy outs.Of course the Cubs lost.Giants 4...Cubs 1.
My real start of fandom however did not start until 1951 when during school vacation I had time to kill and I listened to the Cub games on WGN radio.That was the beginning of my end.You guys should appreciate the irony of this.The newspaper sport sections in 51 were complaining because the Cubs had not been in the WS since 1945....six whole years.If they only knew,LMAO.That is my story as a Cub fan.)
Thank you for reading my long winded post.

I can always count on you for a cheerful comment. What are you doing on a Cub fan forum?

Voicing my opinion . If you didn't want an honest story then you should have put a tag on the thread that you only wanted flowers and lollypop stories .

I ask you the same question . Shouldn't you be watching Matlock or Murder She Wrote ?

You love your old dump building and I will stick to loving basbeball.

Cubs vs Expos when I was 8. Running up the stairs and I busted my chin on the steps and bled everywhere. I had to get stitches at the park. Ryno hit a 2 run HR and the Cubs won 2-0. Mitch Williams closed the game.

Sorry you didn't have a happier experience...at least the Cubs won.

I guess you hated Wrigley Field from the first time you went there.Why did you bother going back ,or didn't you.Honest story? That was no honest story.It was a whine..period.I don't like the throughts either,but I don't consider that the most memorable part of my first visit.If you really hate that park,you are no Cub fan..not in my opinion.I suggest you drink less and you won't have to go to the mens room.



I ask you the same question . Shouldn't you be watching Matlock or Murder She Wrote ?

Why should I watch non-existent TV shows?

I think he's talking about watching their reruns, which is what some older people do during the day.

I didn't hate the park. That was my most memorable moment . Getting splashed on by some drunk , when you are about eight , kind of sticks with you .

I can understand why you got upset with the whole story . I see you living this scenario :
It is about eighty-five outside , you have all of the windows closed and locked with the heat set at eighty-two.So the median temperature in the home is around 106 with 84% humidity , you have to wipe the condensation from the inside of the window to spy on your neighbor. You get done watching The Big Joe Polka Show , have to peel yourself off the couch because your sweaty skin has stuck to that damn plastic cover your wife put on it six years ago. You pad across the floor with your slippers , wearing a thread-bare once white T shirt and your baggy boxers , go to the computer room. After about six minutes you are finally able to pull up Fogpog site. You read through the post and come across my about the splashing pee post , and that sets you off . You remember now why your wife put on the damn infernal plastic covers on the furniture . Ever since your prostate went bad you have been leaving dribbles of piss . Just like Hansel and Gretal you make a trail behind , except your trail is not made up of nibbly little bread crumbs .

So of course you read that piss story and " DAMN that PROSTATE ! Damn that PLASTIC COVER , damn this old age !! and DAMN THAT LEE EILA !! "
