Continuing this morning’s attendance observations, here’s a shot of Wrigley in the 70’s with the upper deck closed. I guess the whole “Cubs are cool” thing didn’t start until Sandberg showed up.
Those of you of a certain age will recall the uppers at Shea being closed quite often. I don’t think we’ll see the Promenade closed this season, but another 90 loss disaster and you never know what 2011 holds.
Oh, your partial plan invoice is due tomorrow. Lick that stamp.

The hsistory section on Bleed Cubbie Blue has several cool old photos from Cubs games.
Regular readers of the Mets Police know I took lots of pictures of my recent trip (do a search for Wrigley Field using the search box on the right side of the page if you want to see them). I didn’t want to turn this in to the Cubs Police, especially with a long winter between July 4th and April 1st this year – gotta save the generic stuff – but I thought I’d share what it looks like to take the El to Wrigley since I’m sure you guys have taken the 7 to Shea at least once. Yeah I said Shea.
I find a lot of “Mets nerds” are also “Subway nerds” – like I could totally see Howie Rose knowing lots about the BMT, couldn’t you?
When you get down to street level this is the view. Between the buildings you’ll see Wrigley, and these are the backs of the “rooftops.”
