Wrigley Field球场最为著名和独特之处:由常春藤覆盖的外场墙,非常养眼

这里还有一个好玩的地方,球场周围建筑上设有“屋顶看台”,这在其他球场都是没有的。视野可是相当好哦。

歌词赏析:

Don't let anyone say that it's just a game

For I've seen other teams and it's never the same

When you're born in Chicago you're blessed and you're healed

The first time you walk into Wrigley Field

Our heroes wear pinstripes;heroes in blue

Give us the chance to feel like heroes too

Whether we'll win and if we should lose

Some day we'll go all the way

Yeah! Someday we'll go all the way

 

We are one with the cubs,with the cubs we're in love

Yeah,hold our head high as the underdogs

We are not fairweather by farweather fans

We are like brothers in arms in the streets and the stands

There's magic in the ivy and the old scoreboard

The same one I stared at as a kid keeping score

A world full of greed,I could never want more

Someday we'll go all the way

Yeah! Someday we'll go all the way

 

And here's to the men and legends we've known

Teaching us faith and giving us hope

United we stand and united we'll fall

Down to our knees the day we win it all

Ernie Banks said "Oh,let's play two"

Or did he mean 200 years

In the same ball park,our diamond,our jewel

The home of our joy and our tears

 

Keeping traditions and wishes made new

Place where our grandfathers,fathers they grew

Spiritual feeling if I ever knew

And if you aren't been I am sorry for you

When the day comes with that last winning run

And I'm crying and covered in beer

I'll look to the sky and know I was right

That Someday we'll go all the way

Yeah! Someday we'll go all the way
