Comiskey crime vs. Wrigley

by Dr. Crawdad of the WSI message board

"Mentally challenged cub fan"? Isn't that redundant?

The stats back up what I remember hearing a few years ago back when that loud mouth radio host got beat up. I've been going to Comiskey my whole life and I've never had trouble, nor felt threatened.

Like you, I've had numerous futile conversations with mindless Cubbie fans about Comiskey's being dangerous. Often it's just based on their misperception, not facts. Comiskey is derided as being surrounded by hostile whites and then sometimes they say it's a dangerous neighborhood because of the projects. By contrast, Wrigley is in an area teaming with businesses (mainly bars) and the homes appear nice. So Wrigley is safe, in their closed minds. Many times though these Cubbie fans are just hurling, this time an insult. Facts, logic and reasoning don't matter then.

I'll never forget the conversation I had with this one guy who is supposedly intelligent. He told me that he'd won't take his kids to Comiskey "'cos it's so dangerous". This guy also said, "you know no one brings kids to Sox games. I asked him, "Have you ever been to Comiskey?" No, he answered. Then I asked, "Do you watch Sox games on TV?" No. So what did he base his opinion on? He didn't have an answer.

But here's the funny part to me about this situation, the supposedly intelligent guy in question is also a born-again-Christian. Part of his reasoning is that Comiskey is not a healthy atmosphere for his "saved kids". So I asked him about the atmosphere at and around Wrigley - the many bars, the large gay community around Wrigley (Boys town with Gaymart & The Manhole, etc.), is the Wrigley atmosphere ok for your children? Yeah, he brings his kids there for quite a few games per year.

It's amusing to me that when having these Comiskey vs. Wrigley arguments that Cubbie fans can attack Comiskey with class and racial based arguments but when the homosexual nature of Wrigleyville is brought up well they get very upset. Racial and class based put downs are ok, but a gay put down is just not tolerated. Maybe it's hitting too close to home.
