I like to go to the game with someone who is as into the game as I am. A cold beer or two, a hot dog, a good buddy or two for company (my wife qualifies) and I'm good to go. I don't need loud music or to be told when to clap or cheer. I don't need to tailgate either but I'm not averse to it if any of you want to invite me. Yes the Cubs have had in the past, and still to this day have hardcore fans whose knowledge and love for the game is the equal of any other teams fans. I've met a few of them, and been friends with some. Still I'm not going to delude myself and think that the Wrigley experience today is primarily about the game. It hasn't been marketed that way and it isn't in reality. It's one of the reasons I took the unpopular position that the Cubs could use a fresh start somewhere else. Well that ain't going to happen, so we'll see how things continue to develop on the north side.
