Speaking of these minor (but semi-interesting) details, after looking at the finer points of Ferris Bueller's bedroom a few months ago, I was very happy to find that someone else out there has a similar obsession.
An article by Larry Granillo surfaced today on BaseballProspectus.com which focuses on the scene in Ferris Bueller's Day Off where Ferris and his pals visit Wrigley Field. Granillo has done the research and determined the exact game on Chicago's North Side that was captured on film in movie.
Do you even need to wonder how awesome this is? If you're not sure, the answer is "very."
I won't spoil the outcome -- you can read the article for yourself -- but thank you, Mr. Granillo. You are my hero today.
