On Friday Mary Dixon and I did our morning show from one of the radio booths inside Wrigley Field. As we get ready to go live, this is our view. Seeing World Series stenciled on the field made us a little dizzy.

Starting a radio show and snuggling for warmth on a chilly morning.

We spoke to Pat Hughes and Len Kasper on the phone. Crane Kenney showed up live and provided an eloquent introduction to his musical choice, Bruce Springsteen-Land of Hope and Dreams.

In stark contrast to the security later that day, there was no one to prevent the morning crew from sneaking on the field for 30 seconds. With Mary Dixon, The Regular Guy, and morning show producer Chris Cwiak.

By 10:30am, hundreds were gathered at Clark and Addison taking photographs of the World Series marquee. With Mary Dixon and Marty Lennartz.

Post broadcast nourishment at Kanelas Breakfast Club. We were in touch that morning with Congressman Mike Quigley, who is one of our most loyal listeners. We bought him breakfast. He is an obsessed Cubs fan. Like many of us.

People would ask me if I took a nap before Game 3. Sure I did.

My wife took this picture just before we went inside. Wearing my season ticket holder cap, season ticket holder scarf, Cubs windbreaker, Cubs jersey they gave me after I sang the 7 inning stretch many years ago, and a new Cubs t-shirt my wife bought me because she loves me. I am feeling 11 years old.

Guess what. I took exactly 1 picture at Game 4. I was keeping score. Eating my rally sandwich. The game got out of hand and my phone stayed in my pocket. My view from the upper deck right behind the Fox cameramen.

Clark Street was shut down to pedestrian traffic North of Addison creating scary congestion on the sides of the street.

When I saw Andre Dawson on the field before game 5, I had a feeling everything was going to be all right.

Tributosaurus buddies Curt Morrison and Matt Spiegel (also midday host at 670 WSCR) were right behind me. We’re smiling because the Cubs had just beaten the Indians 3-2 to force a trip back to Cleveland. 2 and 2/3 innings of relief by Chapman took its toll on the crowds’ peace of mind.

Snapped this photo of David Ross when he came back out on the field to dispense a hug to someone dear to him. It started with a high five.

Game ended just before 11pm. I stayed to watch the players re-emerge from the clubhouse. Got home at midnight. In bed by 1am. Up at 4:30am for the morning show. Yes. It was worth it. Wish I were going to Cleveland.
