I'm really getting sick of The Cubune's countdown of the top 100 games at the Urinal.

Summary : "Remember that time we won that game and then didn't do anything? That was awesome!"

Default What is your secret Wrigley?

How do you do it? How did you live to the long age of 100? Was it your diet of goats and alcohol filled urine? Or it is the ivy ?

My favorite memories are all the World Series championships the Cubs won while playing there for the past 98 years...oh....wait........

Btw, anyone else been wondering how many Cubs fans actually realize or know that even though Wrigley is 100, their lil' blue team hasn't played there for 100 years yet ?

The Sun-Times interviewed a fan who didn't know they didn't get lights until 1988. Her response was "What did they use before then, flashlights?"

Despite the flubs being the flubs, the link in the original post is on point. Very informative, the White Sox MUST do something like this for Old Comiskey. I want to see the exact same thing for the Baseball Palace.

80 greatest moments. A walk thru its history with pictures from every decade, anecdotes, stories, everything that WrigleyField100.com provided. C'mon, Sox, throw us a bone. Our ballyard was every bit as historic.

I think its time to visit the 300 or 500 level. Great historic pics from the history of the White Sox and Chicago.

No one will care. Everybody will be watching the CL semifinal instead between Madrid and Munchen.

Talk about missed marketing opportunities. 2008 was the 100th anniversary of their last World Series title. Why no celebration?

It's the party of the century for the Chicago Whales.

The Cubs were playing at West Side Grounds 100 years ago. LOL.

Makes me wonder what would have happened to the Cubs had the Federal League not sued for antitrust violations.

In honor of Wrigley's 100th birthday, I thought I'd share my favorite Wrigley Field memory:

The Cubs have not sold out today's game. There are a LOT of empty seats in the lower and upper deck.

Wow. So much for the party of the century.

Metra added an extra train on the BNSF line for the Cubs game today. Maybe that wasn't necessary after all.

The 5th inning Happy Bday sing along was awkward.

Bases juiced for the KC Packers in the 9th. Will the flubs flub Wrigley's 100th b-day?

HAHAHAHAHA!!! They blew it!! Tied game in the 9th! HAHAHA!!

It's funny, while seeing all the "Wrigley memories" stuff during this game, I wondered why they didn't mention all those times their bullpen collapsed, which is what I usually remember about Wrigley. As the shadows increase in late afternoon at the "shrine", almost every time I watch, there is a Marmol type meltdown, leading to a loss.

And now the Pack leads 7-5. How fitting that on this special day in wrigley history, where they remember all that makes Wrigley Wrigley, a very typical Wrigley occurence occurs. A blown lead in the 9th, a 5-spot . And they were 1 strike away from winning. The more things change, the more they stay the same, even after 100 years.
