Thousands of people throughout Chicago had the same plan Sunday morning. They woke up, went out for brunch, and watched the Bears game.
Among those thousands were the Cubs players and coaches.
Manager Joe Maddon told the press following Saturday’s win over the Cardinals that the team would have breakfast at Wrigley Field. Not only was food provided, but the Bears played on the video board.
The Cubs, who led baseball with the most walk-off wins, may have given the Bears a little luck. With the young Cubs team watching, Jay Cutler and the Bears came back from an 11-point deficit to win.
Jake Arrieta and the Cubs take the field for the first time at Wrigley Field in the playoffs Monday against the Cardinals. The series is tied at one game each.
