Wrigley Field is the Chicago baseball field where the Chicago Cubs play their home games. The field has been the home ballpark for the team since 1916, though it was originally built in 1914 for the Chicago Whales, part of the now-defunct Federal League baseball league. Though it hosted a number of World Series before the 1950s, the Cubs have never won a World Series there.
It’s no surprise that whenever you roam around the areas in Chicago near Wrigley Field – which are commonly referred to collectively as Wrigleyville – you’ll see many a Chicago Cubs black logo tire cover around, among other decals and bumper stickers related to the Cubs. Even in the face of adversity, most Chicago Cubs fans are ever-loyal to their team.
It can be hard to be a fan of the Detroit Lions; they’ve come across hard times in recent years and being someone born and raised in Detroit, I don’t want to abandon my team. Still, they’ve come across a lot of problems. They have the second longest NFL championship drought in the league and their 2008 team was the only team in NFL history to lose all 16 regular season games.
As a sports fan and a Detroit fan, it was really hard seeing the team you’ve grown to love and support do so poorly. That being said, a true fan sticks to their team no matter what and is still able to praise them for what they do right. That’s why I still have no problem sporting my Detroit Lions black logo tire cover or one of my Detroit Lions jerseys.
