Baseball starts next week! some_text
Yeah, being a Chicago baseball fan can sometimes feel like some_text
BUT NOT THIS YEAR! THIS YEAR IT'S GONNA BE DIFFERENT...until you remember it's all of 24 degrees outside on Opening Day. some_text

THE WRIGLEY EXPERIENCE
Your friends are in town randomly and want to hit the Cubs game. You look up tickets for Opening Day and the prices are like...some_text
but you bite the bullet and hit the game. Things are going well! You see a little of this...some_text
some of this....some_text
and since it's Wrigley, probably this.some_text
...which will immediately be thrown back. some_text

Regardless, you're having a great time. Even if half the people around you look like this...some_text
or are doing this some_text

Gotta love Chicago baseball, right?
