Today's hottest topic? The use of Wrigley Field as a football field, or... half a football field. As a by-birth Cubs fan [Exhibit A: my dad grew up in Chicago, Exhibit B: my brother's name is Clark Addison- see below] I knew it used to be used as a football field, but as I saw them painting the marquee purple this week I couldn't help but cringe... it's just weird to me. I don't like it. This guy agrees.
Excerpt from an article about my dad naming my brother Clark Addison
I don't hate Northwestern-
it was my 1st college of choice
[until I visited Aggieland]
So, while all you college-football fans go to a newly painted purple field of failure, just remember to respect the field. Respect the stadium. Cubs baseball is sacred. It's more important than your College Game Day Status may make you believe it is. And just remember, while you're only playing to one end of the field, and the fans are sitting way too far away to actually appreciate the game.. I'll be screaming my lungs out in College Station during the 12th Man Day... where we're going to beat the ever-living hell outta Nebraska. Just you wait.
I hope you all enjoy the games going on the next few days.
