My parents and I stopped by Wrigley Field today to check up on the construction they’re doing — they’re tearing down the bleachers and redoing them and also adding in giant jumbotron screen things. Wrigley is a really old field so they’re kind of necessary changes to keep on par with other stadiums.
It’s such an old fashioned place, it has all this history and stuff, so it’s sort of sad.
And there were all these old men standing there, gazing nostalgically at the torn down bleachers and rubble and bulldozers and oh geez. It gave me all the feels. One guy came up with his walker and turned it around to turn into one of those chairs/stools that walkers can turn into, and he sat down and folded his hands on his lap and just watched.
I cannot handle it.
