It’s Friday night, and at this time next week Bruce Springsteen will be onstage at Wrigley Field. September once seemed far away, and now it’s almost here. It promises to be a rockin’ good time.
Earlier this week I had a piece published on ChicagoSideSports about how Springsteen will be the first artist to play at all four Chicago sports arenas: Soldier Field in 1985, the United Center beginning in 1999, U.S. Cellular Field in 2003, and now Wrigley Field in 2012. It’s worth pointing out that championship banners have since come to each of those first three venues, so that bodes well for Wrigley and the Cubs. As I wrote back in March, I believe in the Promised Land.
