OPENING DAY WAS ON APRIL 22, 2009
It All Started With This
Retired Wrigley Field box seats, original sod and Pavers from Wrigley Field have been installed
It’s true that Cubs fans don’t live forever,
but their team spirit never dies.
For millions of loyal Cubs fans, Wrigley Field means a lot more
then just a ballpark; it’s their shrine, and sanctuary.
My Brother passed away suddenly at the age of 45 and was a true cubs fan. He was dressed in Cubs gear from head to toe. We had take me out ot the ball game on his mass card and there were many people there who were in the their cubs gear. they were there to celebrate his life. He would have loved it. We had cubs flags to sign and even all the picture boards were done in cubs. He will be placed at Beyond The Vines soon and it will be the happiest place for him to be with all of his cubs fans and we will always know that he is there and not dug up and placed in a heap. I am happy that there is a place that true cubs fans can be placed forever and not have to be worried they may not have something in something in common with their neighbor for eternity (08/13/2009, 10:52 AM )
The Cubs are one of the few teams in the country that remain loveable despite their lousy record. There’s something to that. Maybe it’s that the Cubs represent fans’ pure interest in baseball and its traditions, regardless of its competitive aspects and whether teams win or lose. Based on their record alone, the Cubs might as well just dissappear. But of all teams, they would be among the most missed. Perhaps that’s their special connection to immortality…(08/12/2009, 12:11 PM )
I was at Ben’s service, and there really wasn’t anything creepy about it. Actually, it was quite a bit different than a regular funeral service. There was the eulogy (which was great, by the way), then a 7th inning stretch where we all took a break to eat. We returned for the rest of the game, and after the 9th inning we celebrated his life (kind of like when the Cubs win!). After the ceremony, we talked about good times and memories of Ben, just like reliving a great game play by play. My guess is that a visit to Beyond the Vines won’t be as depressing as visting a cemetery.(08/12/2009, 10:50 AM )
