Get Ready Cubs Fans – Cubs Tickets On Sale Friday, February 20th!

Posted on 05 February 2009 by Lou

The wait is over. With the 2007 AND 2008 playoffs sweeps behind us, now it’s time to get ready for your 2009 Chicago Cubs. There are some old faces and some new faces, and one tough, yet lovable Manager in Lou Pinella. The Cubs will surely be considered a heavy favorite to win an unprecedented 3rd straight NL Central Division title. But we all know that predictions and favorites mean nothing when you are dealing with the Chicago Cubs franchise.

Will Milton Bradley endear himself to the right field bleachers fans in 2009? Will The Ricketts family finally bring that elusive World Series Title to the North Side of Chicago? Will Ronnie Woo-Woo still make it to every game inside the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field? Unfortunately, we probably only know the answer to one of those questions, so we’ll just have to wait and see for ourselves during the glorious 2009 MLB season.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, February 20th at 8:00AM at the Wrigley Field Box Office. A random wristband lottery system will be used to determine the order in which Cubs fans will be able to purchase tickets to the upcoming season.

At 10:00AM on Friday, February 20th, tickets will go on sale through the Cubs website at www.cubs.com and over the phone – 800-843-2827 for Illinois callers and 866-652-2827 for out-of-state callers.

Chicagoland Tickets.com outlets will also be authorized to start selling Cubs tickets at 10:00AM on Friday, February 20th.

There will be a 42-ticket limit for Cubs tickets sales during the opening weekend of sales. Customers can purchase up to 6 tickets per game, with a maximum of 7 games purchased.

*** And don’t forget - MyCubsToday will be offering free Cubs tickets for 1 game of every weekend series (Friday-Sunday) during the course of the 2009 MLB season. So be sure to check the Your Free Cubs Tickets Offer page often in order to sign up for your chance to win. ***

Winter Classic Is Quickly Approaching – January 1, 2009 At Wrigley Field!

Posted on 24 December 2008 by Lou

January 1, 2009 – Wrigley Field, Chicago – Chicago Blackhawks hosting the Detroit Red Wings – are you ready for some outdoor NHL hockey action, Wrigleyville-style?

The 2nd annual Winter Classic is fast-approaching. The game is already sold out, with the attendance expected to be right around 41,000 crazed (and cold) NHL hockey fans. The Blackhawks and Red Wings are 2 of the Original Six hockey teams and the Winter Classic game will be the 701st match-up between the 2 teams. No other NHL teams have played more games against each other. The Red Wings have won both meetings between the clubs this year – both shootout victories and the teams have combined for a total of 20 goals in the 2 games. We should expect another high-scoring, exciting game between the 2 teams, but with the ice being different outside and with the unpredictable weather-element, that could all change quickly.

In the January 1, 2008 Winter Classic, the Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in a shootout. Penguins’ rookie super star Sidney Crosby scored the game-winning goal. 71,217 crazy fans sat in a snow storm to take in the inaugural Winter Classic at Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The City of Chicago is gearing up for the Winter Classic. Wrigleyville area bars and restaurants, usually known for their pre- and post-game Cubs celebrations during the hot summer will be able to show off their winter beer selections and food menus. The January 1, 2009 Winter Classic is sure to be a memorable at the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field!
