So, this isn't a Cubs bar?

"No," McNally said.

You mean, I'm not going to get the important "Wooo! Go Cubbies! Wooo!" quote for my column?

"Not in this place," McNally said. "That's not our kind of music. We're White Sox fans."

I really enjoyed reading Kass' column today. It wasn't just the mention of a Sox bar that was actively cheering against the Cubs. Even WGN-TV had a report on that. But the little dig that Kass gave to the typical Cubs fan "quote" was priceless.

I've come to the conclusion that the Tribune has been less woo! Go Cubs! than the sun-times! At least you can read about the news without being forced to flip through 6 pages of cubs coverage beforehand. Plus the tribune separates the sports from the cubs coverage so you can decide not to bother with it instead of having to pull the first 3 pages off for the suntimes

The other day the Cubune had an article in the Tempo section about ticket scalpers. The article deflated the myth of the $5000 tickets that my Cubbie friends had been bragging about.

All things considered, tickets aren't that expensive. Though news reports have tickets going for upward of $2,000 on the Internet, the highest price Waiszisz is asking is $350 for a bleacher seat. Most tickets, including box seats, can be had for between $150 and $300 (face value runs from $50 to $75)...

...He's got about 100 tickets left and the game starts in less than an hour. Suddenly, it's a buyer's market...

...Once the game starts, Waiszisz, who a few minutes earlier said he wouldn't settle for less than $100, is dumping good seats for face value.

...He estimates that he and his crew have taken in roughly $12,430 instead of the $45,000 they expected...
