One thing about Chicago Cubs fans – they love their team.
There is such a history to the team, and along with it comes the mighty Cubs fans. You never know what to expect when you see them! They bring their signs, they paint their faces, they wear their jerseys, hats, bring their memorabilia, and know their team.
What impresses me most is the amount of fans that turn up at a ballpark when the team travels. Large groups of fans travel on weekends to where the team is playing, just to show their support, and be a part of the action. And the team notices.
General Manager Jim Hendry always takes time to sign autographs and talk with the fans. The fans appreciate it too. He is very hands on with the Cubs fans. He hangs out in the dugout and talks with the media, and can be seen on the sidelines chatting it up with fans as well.
The players also know their loyal fans who travel. They will wave at them, thank them for coming, and take time for autographs too.
I have noticed that there is a huge bond and loyalty between team and fans. And it is a lot of fun to watch.
I can only imagine what it is like at a home game. I hope that this summer I will be able to make it to
and watch a game. I have never been to Wrigley Field, and it is one stadium on my list of have to do’s.
