  • Here's the install of the goal post foundation for the NU game last year.



    Is there another football game in the works there this fall? I saw that NU is playing ND at home in 2018. Wrigley?

      The Cubs have said they'd like to have another game at Wrigley, but there is nothing currently scheduled. Personally, I don't feel they should play any more football games there until after the mythical renovations take place.

      I would expect that the NU/ND game would be played at Soldier Field.

            • For those of you who didn't go to look it up, the WALLACE TAYLOR shot is from the 1948 presidential campaign, when former FDR VP Henry Wallace and Sen. Glen Taylor ran on the Progessive (far-left) ticket.

                    (Yeah, I know, they made that announcement at the Polo Grounds, not Wrigley Field. Does it matter? Shunt says the 8.15 from Gillingham when in reality he means the 8.13 from Gillingham. The train is the same only the time is altered. Ecce homo, ergo elk. The illusion is complete; it is reality, the reality is illusion and the ambiguity is the only truth.)

                    • Just uploaded last month, great short home movie from 1971, Cubs vs Mets. Jesse Jackson (!), Banks, Williams, Pepitone, Durocher, even Tom Seaver. No audio.

                            • Yuck. Glad I was there last year before they put this in...

                              Surprised that Cub fans are putting up with this. Especially since they'll have to tear out bleachers to do it.

                                As a Cub fan, I am glad that they are making changes to that section. The seats in that section (which are NOT part of the old bleachers, BTW) are pretty awful since they are largely obstructed. This is referenced in the ESPN article about the changes:

                                "No not at all," Kenney said when asked if the plan was similar to seats on top of the Green Monster. "I get that question asked all the time. Why isn't that section full even though the rest of the bleachers are full? So we've done some research into that as to why and one of the issues is that there's some obstruction. So if you sit in the very center field section of that section, you're blocked from seeing the center-fielder. So we're trying to alleviate the obstruction there. In one of the ways to do that is to raise the seats up. So you're not looking over the well and the way the well cuts in there. So that depression there creates the obstructed view. So the elevate on was really generated by trying to avoid obstructed views."
