    Can we go turn the clock back to right before the game, and play this one over again.

    I guess not.

    Congratulations to the Chicago Cubs for giving their fans a great year.

    You can't win them all. It takes a lot to get to the World Series, Your not the only team going home today.

    Lots of people were at Murphy's Bleachers to watch the third game of the division series.

    Some great "Cubs Names" are honored in the bricks paving the sidewalks on the Addison Street side of Wrigley Field. I hadn't noticed that the other day when I was there, or I would have probably taken pictures of them all. It would have made a great collage.

    I tried to get a good picture of the flags flying on the foul poles. They are in honor of Cubs great ballplayers, Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ryne Sanberg, and Ron Santo.

    Barbaraann, as usual you have shown a great deal of class.

    As for our hoped for Cubs-Angels World Series, well, wait til next year.

    The pictures are wonderful, and I'm so glad you had another fun day in Wrigleyville.

    Wrigley Field has this hole in the right field wall, where the fans can come and watch the game from the sidewalk outside.









    Some people even bring their own chairs.

    The rooftops across from Wrigley on both Waveland, and Sheffield, were starting to fill up

    There was a lot of great atmosphere at the ballpark, complete with musicians.

    Ron Santo led the singing of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" today. He did Harry proud.

    The fans supported their team, right down to the end.

    I am listening to the very end of the game. It appears that the Cubs are about to be swept out of the playoffs. I turned off my television. I really don't want to see Arizona celebrating.

    Soriano made the last out.

    Arizona 5 Cubs 1.

    We wait again. Next year -one whole century without a World Series.

    I refuse to be depressed. I had a lot of fun today walking around the ballpark, and taking more photos. This time the fans were there. Not like my earlier shots. I was walking down Waveland just as a batting practice ball cleared the wall. The Bleacher fans yelled "Ball", and the ballhawks ran to get it. Had I not moved to get a great shot of the scoreboard. Can't beat fun at the "Old ballpark".
