Live Update, she has her ticket and is making it in: img_4225-mov
Mesa native Victoria Romero flew to Chicago yesterday with what she says was a plane full of Cubs fans like her on the same mission: Get into Game 3 of the World Series tonight.
Romero told MyNewsMesa.com during tonight’s game: “This game is so electrifying and the bleachers are so much fun. There’s nothing like a World Series beer. I may try to go to tomorrow’s game. I fly out of Chicago at 5 a.m. Sunday.” Today, Romero stood in line for more than 10 hours to get her $325 bleacher ticket at the very last minute.
Romero told MyNewsMesa.com this morning: “As I sit here with other die-hard fans, I still am in disbelief that the Cubs are here, that I am here standing in line for tickets! It wasn’t as crowded at 7:30 a.m. as I thought it would be, but as the hours pass this place is getting crazy. People are passing us, thinking we are all crazy, maybe we all are? I will sit here until I know the ‘day of tickets’ are gone. In the mean time, I am enjoying my company and surroundings. I have ’70s rock playing in front of me and sound checks in Wrigley behind me…even if I don’t get in tonight, I am in heaven right now.”
Romero’s update this afternoon: “A knife fight broke out and there’s been lots of celebrity sightings. Ticket windows are now open so everyone keep your fingers crossed for me.”
