News, thoughts, and opinions from Chicago Cubs season ticket holders and Wrigleyville residents. This podcast covers everything from the baseball events to the neighborhood happenings.
In my day job, I’m a tech guy who’s become management overhead. My earliest Cubs memories are of the ’84 team. The ’89 team made me a life long fan. Mark Grace is my all-time favorite Cub. I’m not much of a writer, so my contributions are audible. I am the Co-Host, Producer, and Engineer of the Wrigleyville Nation Podcast.
A life-long Cubs fan, my formative years involved watching the Cubs of the late 1970s and 1980s. Bill Buckner was my hero growing up. The day that the Cubs lost game five to the Padres in 1984, I refused to leave my room to celebrate my birthday. While the Cubs failed to provide any tangible success on the field, I played every game of every season in Stratomatic where I was able to engineer a few Cub World Championships. Upon moving back to Chicago after school in the mid-1990s, I naturally moved to Wrigleyville. Twenty+ years later, my wife and I are raising two kids in the neighborhood while hoping for another Cubs World Championship.
