CHICAGO -- Grey skies, wind and rain moved over Wrigley Field Wednesday afternoon but couldn’t dampen the excitement of fans stopping by the friendly confines just to feel the vibes emanating from the home of the National League Division Champions.

For many fans a stop in Wrigleyville was a necessity today just to grab a piece of the new championship gear out in stores. The same “Made of October” and “Respect” shirts worn by the team last night in San Francisco lined tables at stores along with hats, flags, and a slew of other fan favorites.

And store employees say all of it is flying off the shelves.
