Getting Cubs Tix if you're from outta town...
Rather than threadjack the "First Cubs Game" thread, thought I'd start one of my own.
1) I live in Memphis, TN, but I have a friend in Chicago who's going through the mother of all bad divorces, and could use some cheering up. If I can arrange to take some time off this summer, and head to the Windy City to visit her (and get a genuine Italian beef fix while I'm at it), what's the best way for an out-of-towner to get some tickets to Wrigley? Is the cubs.com website ok, or is there a better way? Prefer not to deal with scalpers; I'm anal-retentive and prefer having the arrangements in place before I get to the ballpark.
2) I'm a native St. Louisan, which means (of course) I'm a Cards fan. The ultimate Chicago visit would include a Cards-Cubs game at Wrigley. How far in advance does one have to buy those tickets? I realized I'm probably hosed for getting any this season, but I can start planning for 2010...
