Something called the "Red Bull Fuel and Fury" is heading to Wrigley Field this Saturday, November 5th, from 5-8pm. This looks to be some type of stunt show with snowmobiles set for the Clark Street parking lot.
What will they think of next?
It says here that eight of the world's top snowmobilers (how many can there possibly be) will "ascend into the night sky" next to historic Wrigley Field. This will supposedly place our beloved ballpark "into uncharted territory - the center of an extreme machine playground" (wowzers) and "if history is any indicator, the spectacle promises to be and outdoor laboratory for extreme innovation"
You know, I've come to notice that kids these days like to talk about extreme this and extreme that. Try living through a Chicago winter with not much more than a blanket or a Chicago summer without air conditioning. That there is extreme...
In case you were wondering, the event will include Winter X Games (never heard of it) gold medalist Daniel Bodin, plus Heath Frisby (frisby?) and Justin Hoyer, as well as all-stars (all-stars of what?) Cory Davis, Jimmy Fejas and Jeff Mullen. The competition will be scored by a "panel of five judges, all of whom are industry heavyweights" (impressive)
Gates at the corner of Clark and Addison will open at 5pm and the show will start at 6. Admission is free to the public and "for sure... will be insane!"
