I hung out with the firefighters and EMTs at the historic Wrigleyville Firehouse, home of Engine Co. 78 and Ambulance Co. 6, which is spitting-distance across the street from Wrigley Field. The Cubs were playing the New York Mets in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, and the guys were watching the game while chatting with random baseball fans who would wander in and out of the modest firehouse, eating dinner and then running out on a couple calls that night. There was a 12-second delay between what was happening across the street and what was playing on the televisions in the firehouse. Lt. Daniel Reichenberger counted the seconds between the roar of the fans coming from Wrigley Field when Jorge Soler hit a home run and when it finally showed up on the tv. The Cubs lost that night, and then lost the series the next night, but it didn't seem to stop the guys at the station from enjoying the game any less.
