After watching the Illini game, I headed to a local watering hole
to hear my buddy debut his new CD. I was pretty surprised to see
a few people wearing various articles of SOX clothing. While waiting
in line for the bathroom, the guy in front of me had a Sox cap and
we started talking about the departed Magglio and Rookie sensation
Brandon McCarthy. A guy in front of the SoxCap wearing fan, turned
around and mentioned he was a Sox fan too and that he was very very
excited about Brandon McCarthy too. The three of us continued talking
about the White Sox when a guy walking by hears us talking about the
SOX and says "sox suck" and starts laughing.

I immediately note that hes wearing a ratty blue t-shirt showing his
allegiance to the north-side corporation. I told him were going to be
better than the North Side Corporation, and he says how, we got
rid of "lee and ordonez, you guys have no offense anymore".
He pointed out that Moises Alou was a much better Left Fielder than
Scott Posednik. I told him that he must not have gotten the Memo,
but that Alou is with the Giants now.

He walked away sheepishly, to the laughter of the three sox fans
still waiting in line at the bathroom. :cool:

This seems to be a reoccuring criticism in every "I had a confrontation with a Cubs fan" thread.

i love when cubs fans have no idea whats going on :D: ....


while on the topic of dumb flubs fans... i was telling one of my friends (a cub fan) that i was going to opening day. he commented how he saw on the news that us cellular was falling apart. i replied saying how they were just getting out what loose concrete was there so it wouldnt fall on peoples heads during a game. and he had no idea what i was talking about til' i reminded him that it happened at the urinal (well it didnt fall on anyones head, but yall know what i mean) :tongue:

That about sums it up. All that beer destroyed their brain cells. They think that Fergie Jenkins will start in Wood's place on Opening Day.

I ran into a guy in a watering hole prior to spring training starting and he said "I'm a Cub fan but I hope they trade Sosa". Obviously TV & Radio weren't invented in his life yet.

Is it me or is Hangar the only person who ever encounters all these
incredibly stupid people? If he ever wrote "I met a Cub fan today and
he was great to talk to. He even knew who Ernie Banks was" I think
I'd faint.

Haha, yeah. What is it about Hangar that he always gets into spats with the blue Kool-Aid drinking sheeps? I havent seen Hangar in public, but Im starting to think he wears a jacket that says on the back in bold letters "ASK ME WHY THE CUBS SUCK!"

:roflmao: I've been wonder the same myself! The Flub fans I run into are 100% up-to-date on who they lost, who they got, who they will miss, who they did not get, and who is injured.



I keep them informed.:D:

It's you. Intelligent Cub fans are an extremely rare commodity. They just march into Wrigley every season like robots, having no idea what kind of team they are about to watch. They probably don't even know about the falling cement yet, and will wonder why the nets are in place.

I'd be surprised if they knew who Fergie Jenkins is. I'm guessing most of them don't realize Maddux pitched for a different team.

You're right, I gave them too much credit. Make that Randy Johnson will start for them. The Big Unit's name was in the news a lot in the offseason and he was traded to a team that is close to making the World Series, so I can understand how the Flub fans might get confused................
