In my visits to Wrigley Field in recent years, I have enjoyed a wide variety of vantage points.

I had the pleasure of watching the great Greg Maddux pitch from a second-row club box seat. I've also sat in the field boxes, terrace boxes, terrace reserved seats, and upper deck boxes - behind home plate and down both lines. I've even watched a couple games from rooftops across the street. But I had not sat in the bleachers since 2004 - two years before the seating area was renovated and named the "Bud Light Bleachers."

I turned 41 on April 1 and I can't think of a better birthday present than the one my wife, Denise, gave me this year - three tickets to this year's Opening Day game between the Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field.

We didn't have it as bad as Daniel in the den of lions, but as Cubs fans (and sober people), my family was an island in a vast sea of Sox fans (and drunks) when we attended Saturday night's city series game at the facility formerly known as Comiskey Park.
