There will be no Cubs baseball at Wrigley Field next week, or anytime in the near future. However, the sweet, sweet pipes of Wayne and Kathleen Messmer will be on full display for Cubs fans yearning for afternoons at the ballpark.
The Messmers, longtime Cubs national anthem singers, will virtually sing the anthem and "God Bless America" Thursday at 3:30 via Facebook live. The two are performing as part of Nisei Lounge's virtual Opening Day.
It's not what fans are accustomed to, but good on the Messmers for providing a sense of normalcy during these unprecedented times.
