We are back to full-capacity stadiums, and that includes Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. Over the weekend, we had two “you love to see it” moments at that ballpark that prove America is officially back.
First, a lively Bill Murray got the crowd going with an epic seventh-inning stretch on Friday afternoon. It’s an entrance that would even rival Murray providing a late-game spark for Michael Jordan and the Tune Squad in Space Jam back in ’96.
But on Sunday, Cubs fans took over and grabbed headlines after creating the Taj Mahal of beer snakes. Folks, this wasn’t your average, run-of-the-mill beer snake. As Jim Mumford pointed out on Twitter, it’s easily 100 feet long, which should equate to at least $30,000 worth of beer.
Check this out.
Some of the reactions to the plastic, once-alcoholic reptile were fantastic. CubFanMike did a few quick calculations in his head and discovered that, after the alcohol sales from that beer snake alone, the Cubs can definitely afford both Yu Darvish and Jon Lester.

And of course there always has to be one guy who tries to ruin all the fun. This time, it was Chris Tannehill, the sound guy on 670 The Score in Chicago. Unsurprisingly, Chris also covers the White Sox for Locked On Sox.

Give us a second, Chris. America is having a moment. We’re officially back.
