The Cubs have been reeling so bad that they haven’t lead a game in the last 50 innings. It’s safe to say that the Cubs have hit rock bottom. Most of the games have been close or they had a legitimate shot to win them, but this last weekend at Wrigley was the exception. Their rivals from the south the White Sox beat them up pretty good. It was is always a very competitive crosstown classic the Sox came in and took it to them. Wrigley Field tickets this past weekend were very disappointing.
You could see blocks of open seats all throughout the ballpark all weekend & Friday was especially gaudy with the Cubs drawing a very embarrassing 35,000. Usually Cubs tickets for the crosstown classic are in very high demand. In fact all three games failed to sell out, a Wrigley first. With the Cubs ticketing gurus introducing their dynamic pricing meaning they set the prices at a price they deem responsible they seemed to have priced themselves out of reality.
When the new regime took over this winter they preached patience and that things would get worse before they got better. Well they were right. The Cubs came out of the gate having lost eleven of their first fourteen games. But the needle has moved in the right direction as of late. As Cubs Tickets have been selling quite nicely the last home stand & the team has responded with a couple of nice series. They hosted the Dodgers who boast the leagues best record & the first place Atlanta Braves and won 4 of the 6 meetings.
Cubs Tickets are sure to be at a fever pitch as a home series with their south-side rivals loom before a nice 3 week stretch of games against non .500 teams. Wrigley Field is always rocking come summertime, we just need the Cubs to do their part and keep it interesting.
Ever since Derrick Rose went down with a knee injury in Game 1 the Bulls look like a deer in headlights.. While the elite teams are getting stronger as the playoffs progress it seems like the Bulls are breaking down health wise. Bulls Tickets are still available for all games, but with Joakim Noah going down with an ankle injury Fri night & doubtful the rest of the series, it seems like the Bulls days might be numbered.
Bulls tickets are readily available as fans will flock to the United Center to cheer on the team with the NBA’s best regular season record, they just won’t see two of their starters. But having one the leagues best benches look for Tuesday nights game to be a dog fight.
