For Pete's Sake

A goat, a painted dog and other sights around Wrigley Field ahead of Game 3

Don’t arrive late.

That’s probably the best advice to anyone who happens to be going to Wrigley Field on Friday for Game 3 of the World Series. A lot of people began to congregate around the stadium hours ahead of first pitch of the contest between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians.

There were a few animals there as well.

I suppose that’s to be expected since there hasn’t been a World Series game at Wrigley Field since 1945. Here are some of the sights and sounds:
