Since the local media in general and Jay Moronotti in particular seem intent on reporting to the masses every time someone burps out loud at The Cell; let's keep an eye on the people inside Wrigley this weekend. Anyone going to any of the games, report to the forum anytime you see someone (particularly if he's wearing Cub blue) start a fight, spill a drink, act drunk, hit on women, be obnoxious, use foul language or otherwise disrupt the "sanctity" of the place. Then we'll email all these stories to the papers and the Cubs advertisers and tell them the truth: that fools who attend ball games in Chicago aren't only found at The Cell. :angry: I got a feeling there could be a lot of stories told this weekend, especially if the Sox take at least 2 of 3.

It's probably an exercise in futility, but I felt better just writing this.

They'll all be blamed on the White Sox fans

I guess it was a Sox fan who stole that baseball cap off the Los Angeles bullpen catcher at Wiggley a few years ago...ain't that right, Jay?

Sunday's game is going to be dangerous. You have:

1. Sox/Cub game.
2. Last game of series.
3. 4th of July partying all day.
4. No work the next day.
5. Night game.
6. Plenty of bars after game nearby.
7. Increased emotions this year due to both teams in races.
8. Taste of Chicago ending at roughly same time as game-fewer cops avalable.

:gulp: :duel:

Your comment was not written in the spirit of discussion, but rather to throw fuel on the fire, so I edited it.

You're free to say what you want in the outside world, but this is a "totally biased" White Sox site, so the operators have seen fit to keep the outside agitator garbage out. You're free to set up your own anti-White Sox/pro-Indians message board if you want to, and say what you want.

If you want to discuss your Indians or the White Sox in a non-trolling fashion, you're free to do so. Jumping in the middle of an argument you couldn't possibly understand and hurling insults against Sox fans is out of bounds.

Let's hope there's no high-and-tight pitches late inthe game; especially if the score is lopsided. For the life of me, I do not understand people who go to the park (either one) looking for trouble. You'll wake up the next morning hung over, probably hurting all over and maybe in the drunk tank, which is no way to start a day, IMHO. Maybe I'm just a wimp.:putitontheboard

once again, i didn't intend to offend anyone by saying what i did

it just struck me as odd that you guys would care so passionately about what a proven bunch of morons (read: the media) have to write about you guys when all that should matter is that you just took a series from your arch rivals
in that light, i find it rather ironic that you accuse me of trying to throw fuel on a fire when in reality it's just been proven once again by the existance of this very thread that it's in fact the media who can't help but throw fuel on every fire, however small it may be, they can find

i say leave the bait for what it is, guys

play ball!

SOX FANS TAKE THIS VERY SERIOUSLY because Sheep-Like Cub fans take this as truth, thereby making the Media Report these "truths" even more.
Its BS. The sox are like a BeeHive ............... dont be foolish and poke it.

Everybody should keep score at the games. My buddy and I did the day/night doubleheader (wrigley then comiskey) and i kept score. People at Wrigley were like, what is he doing, what is that. So funny.

I'll be at Game 1 and Game 3 of the series. Rest assured, I'll report back what I see.

I would like to point out about Wrigley, that when Bill Veeck, your former owner, retired, he spent his days in the bleachers at Wrigley with his shirt off...just thought I would add that...

And Veeck is the man responsible for the ivy at Wrigley. What's your point.

You are right on with those observations. All that is a good recipe for something bad to happen. I am shocked that the city had no say in keeping that game a day game. The cops are going to be busy enough without trying to handle that crowd at night.

I'm saying, maybe give it a chance. If you have ever sat in the bleachers at Wrigley, you might understand why people love it out there. And the people do know their baseball out their. I say this and I'm a freakin' Brewers fan.

:whoflungpoo

Bleacher Bums know the least about baseball of anyone in that dump. I've sat in the bleachers at the Urinal before, and it's nothing but an overglorified mook fest.

After the 7th inning stretch, if there has been a few bullpen changes, try and ask a "Cub fan" who is currently on the mound for the opposing team. In fact, ask a "Cub fan" to name his teams' current 25 man roster.

This meatstick lovefest between the North Side, Boston, and ESPN has truly gotten to the point of no return if a Brewers fan is going to praise the Bleacher Bums.

For certain games during certain non-summer periods of the year and in certain sections of the bleachers, you might find some of these "real" fans (e.g. I saw a guy with a big scorebook keeping score a couple years ago). But I will say that my personal experience has been that nearly everyone in the bleachers -- especially when it's nice, warm and sunny out -- is there to pound down some suds, scope out another bleacher dude or bleacher babe, get hammered, socialize with their buds, and cheer on Sammy or Prior or Wood(s). Baseball is a distant destination compared to the rest of those factors.

Apparently everyone was well-behaved this weekend at The Shrine, or so says the Cubune. Moronetti will probably use that as "evidence" that Wrigley is indeed the civilized place to watch a game in his next birdcage-lining screed in the Scum-Times. Meanwhile, bring your Mace to the Cell this week. You can never be too careful there :angry: .
