The field dimensions/rule changes could keep them from playing this game at Wrigley in the future, but I’m not sure I could endorse this strongly enough. Pictures!
The Christmas train was out! Riding the Red Line, with Santa, to an Illinois-Northwestern game at Wrigley would have been such a supremely odd occurrence I’m not sure I could’ve handled it. I ended up taking the normal train on the other track.
Red Line was packed. Unpleasant, but fun?
This was a few minutes before the Illinois band started playing at Clark and Addison. Just a fantastic atmosphere.
Didn’t have tickets. Didn’t really matter. Bar was tremendous, and I’m sure that was replicated 20 times over all around the ballpark.
Oh, yeah. This guy went completely out of his mind and they’re now bowl-eligible. Success all around. Somebody figure out how to squeeze six more feet out of there so this game can be played there every year.
