Erin Andrews, ESPN College Gameday, Coming to Chicago’s Wrigleyville Classic

I heard a rumor last night. Then this morning, I saw this published on the blog of our good friend and Chicago Now brother Spread Far the Fame (also the creator of that lovely graphic above)

ESPN’s College Gameday will be coming to our city for the Northwestern vs. Ill-ANNOY game at Wrigley this Saturday. It marks the first time since November of 1995 the preeminent college pregame show will originate from a Northwestern home game. This is big.  This is huge.  This is our chance to show the world that Northwestern is Chicago’s Big Ten team.

I’ll let your slam at my alma mater slide for now, because I agree this is ginormous news! (And I’ll retort your dig later)

Big news for the Big Ten, big news for the Illini, big news for college football (sort of), big news for the Cubs (I guess). Erin Pageviews, the Queen of All Sports Media is going to be in my neighborhood! Yes, I must repeat that. Erin Andrews in going to be in “Wildcat Alley” to cover the Wrigleyville classic.

It looks like your graphic has come true. Well, kind of.

Fairly close anyway.
