The World Champion Chicago Cubs haven’t been too great this year, but 2016 was a big one. It saw the end of “the curse” and a long-awaited World Series win that ignited the interest and excitement of baseball fans not just here in Illinois, but around the world. The Cubs have many famous fans, and among them Eddie Vedder stands out. In fact, 2016 also brought PEARL JAM to Chicago for a pair of shows at Wrigley Field – concerts that are now the subject of a new film entitled Let’s Play Two. The first teaser emerged a few days back (see it below), but not much else is known about the release plan at this point. A website for the film offers an email signup for info, and if anything, a fall debut for this year would be pretty cool.
I hate to say it, but despite living in Chicagoland for most of my life, I’ve only attended one game at Wrigley Field – and it was back in 2013 – the first-ever big league game that my wife and I took “The Rock Daughters” to, and one in which they got to run the bases. Our girls LOVE the Cubs, so we need to get back to the “old ballgame” at some point very soon.
