A Winter Wrigley Walk



It was a cold sunny Saturday on the north side of Chicago, but that didn’t stop a couple dozen people from braving the minuscule temps, donning a pair of ice skates and enjoying a couple rounds around the rink. The clear Cubbie blue skies cast construction crane shadows over the centenarian ballpark, and Santa’s workshop, now shuttered with the shops of the Christmas market. Jake Arrieta authentic jerseys are half price on the Sports World discount rack and it had me wondering how quickly they will mark them up again if he were to sign with the Cubs. Though not even close to baseball weather, the low hanging sun’s warmth and clear skies recollected better times at plus 60 degrees from current conditions. As I peered between the chainlink and into the ballpark, Tom Waits voice droning “What is he building in there?” from Mule Variations popped into my thoughts. Whatever they’re building, I’ll see it April 9th when the 10-0 Chicago Cubs face the Pirates.
