Big Ten Rivalry Night at Wrigley
Hey, do you like Cubs baseball? Would you like a Purdue-themed Cubs shirt and the chance to throw out the first pitch at a game? Then have we got a deal for you! It's Big Ten Rivalry Nights at Wrigley. September 15 (yes, that's next Monday) is a chance for you to join your fellow Purdue fans in the Chicagoland area (or further away if you don't mind traveling) at a Cubbies game. You'll get a Purdue themed Cubs shirt -- a great way to combine your favorite losing programs (I kid, I kid!).
It's the Cubs and the Reds and the program with the most alums/fans in attendance gets first pitch duties. From the Cubs ticket office:
A bleacher ticket to the game gets you a Cubs shirt in your school’s official colors and the school that brings out the most supporters on each night gets the opportunity to throw out a first pitch as well.
See? I wasn't lying.
So give it a try. When it comes to taking your mind off Purdue football, there's nothing like a nice evening at the ballpark. And a dozen or so beers.
