Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs Game 2

25 July 2009 No Comment

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Chicago so Nicole and I planned to grill on our deck before I headed over to the Cubs game. Since we got a late start I knew I would be a few innings late to the game.

Obtaining Tickets
Since I was planning to attend the Cubs game late, I needed to buy a ticket before the game started rather than wait and hope the Cubs were still selling tickets from the box office. If I had planned to get to the game on time, I would have bought a standing room only ticket for $15 (having to enter Wrigley Field immediately after purchase). I walked around Wrigley Field and realized that tickets were going well above face value.

Since I could not find a cheap ticket, I decided to take the risk and buy a ticket at the box office a few innings after the game began (something I have not done before). However, as I was walking home, a fan had an extra $32 face value seat in which I offered $20. He accepted the offer and I had my ticket.

The Game
The Cubs defeated the Reds for the second day in a row winning 5-3.
