If it seems like an eternity since the Arizona Diamondbacks hoisted the coveted commissioners trophy way back in 2001, imagine being a Chicago Cubs fan. The Windy City's most storied sports franchise has had nothing but unhappy endings for more than a century. In fact, the last time the Cubbies won the whole shebang there were all of sixteen teams in the big leagues, and Teddy Roosevelt was in the Oval Office. Yet despite being perennial losers, the Cubs are one of the most beloved franchises in all of sports; their fans fiercely loyal.
So when the Cubs roll into to town to take on an overachieving Diamondbacks club it will come as no surprise to see the seats of Chase Field, 401 East Jefferson Street, littered with blue and red. It will also come as no surprise if the Cubs lose. The Monday, July 22, game starts at 6:40 p.m. Tickets are $12 and up via www.ticketmaster.com or 602-462-6500.
