Worst Seats In The House
No fan of the Chicago Cubs am I. Wrigley Field? No big whup. Been there. It’s a urine soaked dump loaded with more drunks than a Soldier Field parking lot on an autumn Sunday.
So much about the Cubs and their fans amuse me to no end. To me, those rooftop bleachers across the street from the park are the biggest hoax in sports.
That’s why THIS caught my eye.
Fans can watch the Cubs v. Yankees from a rooftop seat for half price. That’s $125 for seats usually selling for $275. For what?
From the page (emphasis mine):
You sit in the bleachers, (no, not the real bleachers) watching the Cubs-Yankees face off, hoist a beer to your friends, and exclaim this is the best seat in house. Or rather, on the house. This is your chance to watch the Cubs battle in Wrigley from excellent rooftop seats along Sheffield Avenue.
If you haven’t watched a game from a roof deck, you haven’t experienced a crucial, authentic Chicago experience. Call it a Bucket List entry: watching the game atop an endorsed rooftop with unobstructed views, easy bathroom access, and all you can eat and drink. There are limited seats for each, so call early.
Rooftop access starts one full hour before the game. Help yourself to as much as you can eat and drink: pizza, burgers, dogs, Italian beef, cookies, brownies, ice cream and more. When you grab this daily deal you grab yourself the best seat on the house.
One may as well watch a baseball game from the Goodyear fvcking blimp at 2,000 feet.
I might be willing to sit in those rooftop seats under certain circumstances. If it were free and they provided limo transportation to and from, served Bombay Sapphire martinis with prime porterhouse steaks and offered me the opportunity to snort coke off a stripper's tits.
It appears that Cub fans are finally losing their enthusiasm for losing judging by this incredible offer. The bloom is off the Wrigley rose. The honeymoon for new owner Ricketts is officially over. But enough of the cliches.
The joke is on the fans.
