Game 5 scorecard for 2016 World Series

Game 5 scorecard for 2016 World Series

Fun to draw for a win It’s rather funny how doing public scorecards changes your perception of the game. You want the win, not just for the win; but because a win usually comes with some good events to highlight. A home run, maybe. Or some stellar defense. Doing a scorecard when your team doesn’t […]

Game 4 scorecard for 2016 World Series

Game 4 scorecard for 2016 World Series

Nerve damage? I did so much writing and drawing, that the tip of my right middle finger became numb. The way I hold a pencil, my middle finger gets a lot of pressure. Whenever I write anything, I tend to push pretty hard. On the scorecards, I write really small, so I need more control, […]

Church liturgical colors during summer match Wrigley Field

For the last four years, Father Burke Masters has held mass at Wrigley Field before Sunday home games, inviting beer vendors, ushers and anyone who works at the ballpark. Before Sunday night’s 1-0 loss to the Dodgers, Cubs catcher Miguel Montero joined the group in Section 209 along the left-field line. Read the rest: Montero […]

Homerun photos of the crowd

I love homerun photos of the crowd. This photo by the Chicago Tribune features a near homerun. Look at that one fan totally reaching out. The ball is a mere inches from the net.

Ryne Sandberg, Philadelphia Phillies coach, 2013

The return of Ryne Sandberg to Wrigley Field

This is pretty exciting as a Cubs fan. By dumb luck, I was able to see Ryne Sandberg’s last game as a Cub in 1997. By the same random measure, I will see his first return in uniform to Wrigley Field since then! I just learned he’s third base coach for the Phillies. My brother […]

How the advertising will really appear on Wrigley Field's Jumbotron and outfield

Ricketts Wrigley Field mockup vs the real Jumbotron ads mockup

The original mockup by the Ricketts makes the outfield advertising look all nice and pretty. The Jumbotron has nice green ads to match the nice green Jumbotron, which matches the original scoreboard. But these are just mockup ads to hide how loud the real advertising will be. My brother took the Ricketts’ mockup and put […]
