On the Way To Wrigley

First, Seattlites: at what venue were the most NFL games played?
That’s right sports fans, Wrigley Field, where the Bears played from the 1920s (when Seattle was still officially in the hands of Native Americans, right? Or had the logging and whoring begun yet?) to the mid-’70s. Today I’m off to see the horrifically bad Cubs (sorry to cut your response off early, Brad, but you’ll have to do better than just giving me shit for being a Cubs fan. It’s like teasing someone for being left-handed or having Down’s Syndrome or some other inborn trait) but managed to find an internet cafe on my way.
So, once again, check out Mike Mulligan’s take. He fears the Seahawks and claims the Bears have to play errorless ball and win the turnover battle to take this game. It’s his job to know this stuff, so I’ll just agree. And point out that he agrees with me that the evolution of the canon of American literature in the 20th century is a dynamic process whereby issues of American identity are contested and revised through reiteration of the key iconic gestures of identification with the outsider and lighting out for the territories.
