Breakfast at Wrigley, #Cubs style
It was breakfast at Wrigley Field when the Cubs players arrived for Sunday’s abbreviated workout. The Cubs, who have not played at home since a makeup game on Sept. 28, were greeted by an omelette station, platters of fruit, and a pig’s head on a table surrounded by different sausages and meats. Of course, there were donuts, including some with white frosting and a blue “W” on top.
“That was great, wasn’t it?” Cubs catcher David Ross said. “That’s the first time I’ve ever had breakfast on the field, that’s for sure — that wasn’t in a McDonald’s wrapper. That was a lot of fun. Juts a beautiful day out there. It’s nice to get out there on the grass and just lay around, watch a little bit of football, eat some breakfast.”
The Bears’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs was on the video scoreboard at Wrigley.
Jason Motte threw a simulated game while his teammates filled their plates with avocados and scrambled eggs prepared by the team’s chefs.
“It was weird at times,” Motte said. “The weirdest part for me was throwing with the turtle or the batting cage there. You’re not used to that. You had to have it — there’s people eating omelettes and hanging out. You can’t have a ball go and break someone’s pancakes.”
