Hey Penn Staters!
If you haven't already heard about the weekend that the PSU Road Warriors spent in Chicago and Evanston for the Northwestern game, you're in for a treat.
Andrew and Kelsey of the ROARiors here! We hit the road for Illinois on Friday afternoon that weekend and spent plenty of quality time in the Chevy Sonic, arriving in Northbrook, Illinois a bit more than ten and a half hours later. It was a long trip after a long week of classes and exams, but we were able to power through with the help of a few clutch car-ride games and timely naps. Have you ever played the Alphabet Movie game in the car? It's fantastic - you should all try it on your next road trip.
We checked into our hotel in Northbrook around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning and hit the beds as soon as we stepped into our rooms. It was a good thing we got to sleep as soon as we could, because the next day had a lot in store for us.
With the Penn State vs. Northwestern game set to kickoff at 6 p.m. CT, the ROARiors and the Chevy Sonic were ready for a full day of exploring in downtown Chicago and the city of Evanston.
The Road Warrior Sonic started at Clarke's Diner in the heart of Chicago, and then headed to the one, the only, Wrigley Field. If you asked us, the stop at Wrigley was one of the most fun activities that we had all weekend. In fact, we were so excited to be visiting the Chicago Cubs' home field that we wanted to pay tribute to one of the most memorable moments in left field at Wrigley.
If you follow the Cubs or know some of the historic moments that have happened at Wrigley Field, you most likely know the name Steve Bartman. The ROARiors and the rest of the PSU Road Warrior team wanted to highlight the major league memory, so we reenacted the situation right outside of the stadium.

The ROARiors and the Chevy Sonic made a lot of stops throughout the downtown Chicago area en route to Northwestern, but the trip to Wrigley Field was one of the most exciting of the weekend.
Thanks for following us on our trip to Evanston - we hope you all enjoyed the ROARiors coverage of the weekend as much as we did. I
