Well, it’s actually happening. Of course it’s happening. What do you expect from two teams who haven’t played for baseball’s ultimate championship in…oh…forever…? Neither team is going to go down without a fight. So Game 7 is upon us. This one’s for all the marbles.
I’ll be honest. I’m glad I don’t have a dog in this fight. I don’t think my heart could take it after so many years of saying “Wait ’til next year,” and now next year is THIS year. But I know a lot of my friends, family, and readers of this here blog are big fans of the Cubs. Or the Indians. So I’m happy for all of you. And tomorrow, I’ll be sad for some of you. Unless MLB miraculously decides to make this series go even longer. I know. That won’t happen. It can’t happen. This is the end, my friend.
So maybe you live in or near Chicago and you’re thinking, “This is Game 7. It’s going to be magical. I really want to go to this game. No, I must go to this game.” I don’t blame you. There’s nothing in sports like a Game 7. It’s on my non-bucket list to attend one some day (#78). And maybe you’ve decided that this is the year for you to scratch “Attend Game 7 of the World Series” off your bucket list.
Well, you’re in luck.
Google Maps says it’s only a 5 ½ hour drive from Wrigley Field to Progressive Field.
You really don’t have to worry much about tickets, either. Thanks to Venue Kings, World Series Game 7 tickets are still available right now! And if you use the code VKTURKEY16, you’ll get $5 off any $30 purchase (or more). And these tickets are definitely going to cost more than thirty bucks. But it’s going to be totally worth it.
Can you imagine? Even if you’re ‘just’ watching from home, you’ll have the chance to watch your team exorcise some pretty old demons. I’m pretty excited for all of you. Watching your team win the World Series is fun. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a Cubs or Indians fan right now. My heart can barely take the excitement and I’ve got no dog in this fight at all. It has to feel pretty amazing right now, even if you’re from Cleveland and your team has let their 3-1 lead slip away. Enjoy this moment. As you know, they’re rare.
So who’s up for a road trip?
And if you’re worried about the drive back, you can always stay at a bed and breakfast in northeastern Ohio.
Come on. You know you want to. You’ll kick yourself the rest of your life if you don’t. I’m still kicking myself for some things I didn’t do. Don’t make the same mistake.
