"Photographer Andie Giafaglione joins Justin to talk about her new photo exhibit featuring some behind-the-scenes, one-of-a-kind photographs of the Chicago Cubs and Wrigleyville taken between 1996 and 1999."
"Andie Giafalione joins Good Day Chicago to talk about her new Cubs-inspired photo exhibit Searching For The Pink Poodle: Life With The Cubs '96-99."
"...a new exhibition of photographs that documents the looser, more carefree days of the club’s recent past will get you feeling nostalgic even in these most promising of North Side baseball days."
" 'Who's this 20-something girl? Why does she want to shoot sports?' " said Giafaglione, who has lived on Chicago's North Side for 23 years. "It took a while but I won them over, and they realized that this girl is for real."
"A lifelong baseball fan who grew up seeing games on the AstroTurf confines of Philadelphia’s Veterans Stadium, she remained with the Cubs (one of only a few women to work in the Clubhouse) from 1996 to 1999—four rollercoaster seasons."
"Before camera phones and the steroid scandals of the early 2000s put players on guard, Giafaglione had an intimate look at the inner workings of the hometown ball club."
“I was a student of the game,” Giafaglione said. “One of the phrases thrown around was, ‘Oh, that was left by the Pink Poodle.' Finally I got stories about it.”
