ESPN says about 40 people were taking pictures of the area. Losers.

I'm extremely grateful for what he did, but I actually feel bad for the kid ... his life is changed over a fluke play at a baseball game. Kind of a shame if you think about it.

Has anyone pointed out that, besides the fact that at least 2-3 people were going for the same ball, that there was no guarantee that Alou would have caught it anyway?

Oh, and there's also the matter of Alex Gonzalez dropping a routing groundball right after that. I think that play might loom just a wee bit larger in the grand scheme of things.

Exactly

And he caused all those hits and the A Gonzo error. He causes EVERYTHING

Imagine the negative media backlash towards Sox fans if they were the ones dishing out the abuse.

They just had a drunk guy on Fox who said he tried to get through security guards to "expose" the unfortunate Cub fan. When they cut back to Corey McPherin, he had this smirk on his face almost like he was condoning the "playful" actions of Cub fans. If this happens at the Cell, the media is probably calling for the riot squad.

I posted this on the game thread but tell me what you guys think.

Maybe I'm an elitist but I would hope most of us wouldn't reach for the ball. We always talk crap on here on how Sox fans are better baseball people than those **** on the north side. What is interesting though something similiar happened in the second inning of game 2 I believe on a pop up behind the plate.

I wouldn't have gone for it because I've been watching baseball all my life and being 5 outs a way from a pennant I'd back the hell up.

What kills me is these stupid announcers categorize this idiot as a lifelong cubs' fan. Why because he has a stupid hat on? He has good seats. It speaks to the fact that real BASEBALL fans aren't in those seats. It's corporate fatcats and others who don't belong there.

Reference the Boston game on Sunday. Trot Nixon tracks down a flyball that would have been a homer. Those Boston fans back up and don't interfere. Boston doesn't have the sort of bandwagon chumps the flubbbies do.

PS-At the Cell, this guy is dead. Not that I would condone that.

I saw the same interview, and if that unfortunate fan gets hurt or killed, they should go looking for that fan who took off the sweatshirt covering the head of the guy being escorted out. They should charge that guy with whatever happens to that poor fan.

I would hope the Sox fans that knew the situation (or weren't inebriated a bit too much) would do their best to stop people from trying to interfere. In complete honesty, I believed I would have. I take pride in the fact that I know the game pretty well and I would have avoided the ball like the Plague.

Just my opinion and what I'd imagine I'd do.

I think it was shameful how the other fans, the players and Dusty turned on this fan. I saw the reply about 5 times and - i dunno - he was in the way, but it wasn't like he was leaning way over the rail and blatantly interfering with the play.

Did anyone watch WGN at around 10:00? They showed the fan being lead away by security and a camera was following him and he pull up his jacket to cover his face. MY GOD! You'd think he just committed a murder!

The Cubs and their fans will get zero negative press about this. If this exact same thing happened at Sox Park, the top story would be "Another Ugly Fan Incident at Sox Park"

That doesn't really make any sense. The replay of that play has been shown now about 200 times on each network. Hell, a picture of the guy had already been posted here not 20 minutes after it happened. His face is out there.

While I have no ill will towards the kid, I hope that the Cubs are unable to get him off the hook tomorrow and blow one more game.

I just heard Moises Alou on the score. He blames the loss on...yes...you guessed it, the fan.

I'm no lawyer, but would that be accessory to commit murder?

Oh no he didn't. Alou, you are a piece of ****. How bout your shortstop who booted a DP ball that would have saved 7 runs? How bout your pitchers that got lit up?

I truly believe that mostly everyone on these boards, would have backed away from the ball, cause all true fans would have known the situation of the game, and just backed away, when your team has a chance to go to the world series, it's way more important then getting a souvenire, I would have backed away, and probably tried to back other people away from the ball too, and I know that for a fact.

I would like to think that i would have however u arent looking at the outfielder. Your looking at the ball and its coming into your seat. I wouldnt want it to drop on my junk or in my beer.

A "true fan" and cub fan is an oxy moron, but your right. There is no way you interfere with that ball. I am still living in south fl, but I wish I was there. Dusty should have never left prior in game 2 with a 10 run lead. He was gassed. No matter how it happened the Fish put up a 8 spot, and that should be commened. Pudge has a hit in every game, and the cubs have everything to lose.

Forget the "whether or not"'s. Treat it like a bad ump call. Overcome it, or maybe lose.

Just as the Sox have done during the regular season. . .um, bad example.

Or Sosa trying to show off his corked arm and trying to throw out that guy on the sac fly while the runners move up? How come no one is pointing out that he did it not once but twice in that inning?

Hey! No one told Prior to throw low and in after that pitch. He's supposed to be a strikeout artist, why couldn't he "punch out" another batter? Nobody told Gonzalez to bobble that grounder that couldv'e been an inning ending DP, or at least the 2nd out? Nobody told Prior to groove that pitch to Lee that resulted in a game tying double? Nobody told Farnsworth to clear the bases with a double to Mordecai? Nobody told Corky to stay off the 'roids and make his once cannon of an arm useless?


Why blame it on one misguided fan, when all of the above happened?


THE CURSE CONTINUES!!!!

MWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! :D: :D: :D: :D: :D: :D:

This from the Cubune...

Three security guards ejected one fan after throwing beer. "I hope you're happy," the man screamed. "You cost us a [expletive] World Series."

Another fan yelled, "You could tell we're better than Boston or he'd be dead already."



So basically, this fan is explaining to the media that Flubs fans actually do have SOME class, as they're clearly not RED SOX fans. Red Sox fans, they of bullpen fights with opposing relievers? I know that's what I"M striving for in my fandom.

As we all know, Cub fans never get into bullpen fights with opposing relievers.

I am not blaming that fan for the loss, Baker and the Cub D had a lot to do with it, BUT, Alou would have caught that ball. That would have left 2 outs with one man on 2nd. Gonzales dropped that next ball in his haste to turn a double play. Do you think he would have dropped that ball if there were 2 outs and he didn't rush himself? Maybe, maybe not. I just think the whole thing is hilarious since all the Cubbie faithful are turning on each other over it. OH for a loss tonight! That would make my week.

I'm actually surprised no one has semi-seriously suggested that the kid was really a White Sox fan planted in the Urinal to sabotage the Cubs' pennant attempt.

It would make as much sense as saying Sox fans killed the ivy a couple of years ago.

If Carlos Lee is headed toward me, you'd better believe I'd be running like hell in the other direction.

No lynch mob mentality can be condoned. But you're right. Any time Sox fans act up, the media acts like US Celluar is just one big holding cell. Cub fans have been rowdy for a long time. Last night they were at their worst.
