Cubs fans deserve our warmest welcome
Last Updated: Sept. 4, 2003

Dale Hofmann

Less than a week ago, a motorized division of bearded, barrel-chested, tattooed visitors roared out of our town, and now we look forward to entertaining thousands more who look just like them. Cubs fans frequently travel with their wives.

OK. Sorry. Cheap joke. Of course we're delighted that the Cubs will be bringing legions of followers to Miller Park tonight as they get a late start on their annual plunge from the playoff race. Chicagoans will always be greeted here with open arms as long as America has a common currency...

That was less about criticizing Cubs fans and more about just taking cheap shots at Chicagoans in general.

Dale Hofmann is nothing more than a bitter old man, and a horribly mediocre columnist, I might add.

I agree with MarqSox (I was beat to the punch).

Hofmann came of the box swinging at Cubbie fan wives. It's inflammatory but not worthy of Jay Marrioti. There is a reason Hofmann is writing for a Milwaukee paper.

This originates from the same city that, for the Harley party, had Kid Rock (oops, wrong demo), Tim McGraw (bikers love ballads, don't they?), the increasingly pathetic Dan Aykroyd, and ELTON JOHN as musical entertainment.

Yeah but that wasn't the city's fault. The Harley company actually put that stupid lineup together, so they don't even know their own demographic. Don't hate on Milwaukee, it's a nice town. But Hofmann's an idiot.
