Cubs Fans Will Love This True Story

  2. Get on TV in said bleachers. √

The Cubs game turned into a very late night. By the time we had finished at the Cubby Bear and Murphy’s Bleachers Stephanie had pretty much autographed and distributed every playing card and invited any and every passerby to her wedding the following weekend.
