Hey, the Cubs finally found something worth watching at Wrigley Field!

Yes, obvious joke headline. But yeah, anyway, the Wrigley Field bleacher teardown really is becoming a minor spectator attraction:

And that visual is drawing crowds of Cubs fans, with cameras in hand, interested in seeing a piece of Chicago history.

“I was coming down the L, I saw the Addison stop and I thought to myself, Wrigley Field… Once in a lifetime chance to see this construction going on,” Chicagoan Doug Karsten said.

Chicagoan Rob Lafrentz added, “I think it’s amazing to watch come down.”

No word yet from the Chicago mayor’s office on how much economic activity the bleacher demolition gawkers are generating.

  1. Well, it may be interesting… but unless you were born after 2006, clearly it is not a once in a lifetime opportunity.

  2. The area is a bit of a clusterf*ck right now. They’ve got Waveland and Sheffield closed off. And even the part of Waveland that’s not affected, they’ve turned into a one way (going back toward the stadium, which is really bizarre if you’re trying to get out of the area).
