Criminal Minds: Joe Mantegna (David Rossi on Criminal Minds) and “Bleacher Bums”:

"Saturday. Chicago Cubs fans are legendary for their devotion — and their long history of suffering. On Saturday, the Parker Arts Council presents a light look at the Cubbies faithful in a readers-theater production of "Bleacher Bums." The play, conceived and co-written by actor Joe Mantegna, is set at Wrigley Field, where a group of die-hards watch their beloved Cubs. Beer flows, and bets are placed. Will the Cubs pull this one out? "Bleacher Bums" is an outdoor performance, so bring a blanket to sit on in the grass. 6 p.m. Saturday. O'Brien Park, Parker Road and Mainstreet, Parker. If weather is inclement, the show will move to the Mainstreet Center Theater, 19650 E. Mainstreet. Free."
