Chicago Cubs: There’s no party like a summer party in the bleachers
If I have tickets to a Friday afternoon game during the summer, there’s one place I’m headed: the bleachers. A full-blown party vibe every time out, there’s just something different about sitting out there.
Maybe it’s the chance to catch fly balls. Or perhaps it’s the lack of confined seating, which leads to far more interaction with fellow fans. Jubilant celebrations when the Cubs push a run across the board – and, most recently, beer cup snakes that cost tens of thousands of dollars. Seriously, there’s just nothing quite like it.
What’s not to love about a faux rivalry between left and right field bleacher dwellers or throwing a visiting home run ball back onto the field? The legacy of generations of Cubs fans before you emanate from those bleachers and there’s nothing like it from a gameday experience.
So, there you have it. I’ll let you decide what you prefer – but I think we can all agree: with wintry cold still gripping Chicago, we can all find some peace when looking ahead to summer, baseball and time spent at Wrigley Field.
