Question Have you ever been to Wrigley Field?

I know we have members on here from all over the world.... but just wondering how many of our fogpoggers have actually had the chance to visit The Friendly Confines.

I've been living in Wisconsin for the last 20 years, but I originally came from just south of Joliet. When I lived in Illinois, I tried to get to a Cub game in almost every homestand that they played.

My first game was about this time of year in 1969. The Cubs beat the Giants 12-2 on this day. I got to see homeruns from Williams, Santo, and Banks. I don't want to mention how the rest of that season went though.

The last game I went to was in 1997. It was a night game vs Montreal! I am hoping to go to the August 31st game!

I've only been to Wrigley 3 times. Once in '88 and twice in '99 (where I saw my first cross-dresser, thanks Chicago). I've been to a couple of other Cubs games outside of Wrigley. They were a blast, but they just weren't the same. There is just something about seeing the ivy in person. You people fromt the Chicago area are spoiled.

My first was at the start after Maddux got his 300th win. They lost but it still was awesome to finally be at the place I had been watching on tv for years. Now I go to a game at there at least once a year, but it's not looking up for this year.

First time I went was in 1983 sat in the 3rd base side where it curves into left field. I haven't been to a game since 2005 when Derek Lowe of the Dodgers pitched a one hitter the only hit was a swinging bunt by Jerry Harriston. I sat in left field bleachers before ohh its great....RIGHT FIELD SUCKS...lol.
