One young Cubs fan on Cubs opener: It’s not worth it

SHARE One young Cubs fan on Cubs opener: It’s not worth it

There’s probably a great deal of you that are excited about the Cubs’ home opener this afternoon against Milwaukee. Then again, your mom probably didn’t wake you up at 3:30 a.m. and drive you two hours into the city to a bar when you didn’t have tickets.

The WGN morning team got a little more than it bargained for this morning when they did a man-on-the-street talkie with this very sullen youngster and his slightly-older brother, who doesn’t have a favorite player.

If you see these people up in Wrigleyville today, be a sport and hook them up with some tickets. They could use some cheering up.
