“The Rink at Wrigley” Officially Open

Posted on 21 December 2009 by Lou

After a brief delay, “The Rink at Wrigley” is officially open.  In attendance – Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts, Starting Pitcher Ryan Dempster, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, Blackhawks legend Stan Mikita & 44th Ward Alderman Tom Tunney.  Dempster “threw out the 1st pitch” to Mikita and later skated on the ice with plenty of Cubs fans and skating enthusiasts.

The Rink at Wrigley is open 7 days a week.  Admissions is $10 for adults and just $6 for children.  Skate rentals are available and there is even a Zamboni to help clear the ice after each session.  But with the recent trade of Milton Bradley to Seattle, it doesn’t look like the Cubs will be asking Bradley to drive the Zamboni anytime soon.  Boo-hoo…

Ice Skating Rink Opening Delayed Until Saturday December 18th – Boo Hoo!

Posted on 17 December 2009 by Lou

Boo-Hoo – the Chicago Cubs had to delay the opening of the new ice skating rink on Wrigley Field property until Saturday December 15th because of inclement weather.  What a tragedy!

There will actually be an “Opening Ceremony” for the new ice skating rink on Saturday that is scheduled to start at 11:00AM.  Gimme a break!

Ryan Dempster will throw out the ceremonial “first pitch” to “christen” the rink.  Alderman Tom Tunney and Tom and Laura Ricketts are scheduled to be on hand for the festivities as well.  In addition to being able to skate on the rink, most people really want to be there to see the much-heralded performance by the Starlights Synchronized Skating organization – if you’ve never seen one of their performances, you haven’t lived…

Good job Crane and the Cubs brass – forget about making improvements to a disastrous performance in 2009.  Let’s focus on bringing in some revenue from the ice skating rink and taking out the troughs in the mens’ bathrooms to put in state of the art pissers…
