So when I was 7 years old, I was taken to my first Cubs games, and my brother Brian said, β€œWait, Billy,” and he put his hands over my eyes, and he walked me up the stairs. And then he took his hands away. [He begins to get choked up.] And there was Wrigley Field, in green. There was this beautiful grass and this beautiful ivy. I’d only seen it in black and white. It was like I was a blind man made to see. It was something.

Remarks: I will never forget the first time I walked out from the darkness under the stands at Wrigley and saw the green of the grass and the ivy. It almost seems to glow. Note to self: take kids to Wrigley next year.
