My apologies to anyone who's reading this while eating lunch... you may want to wait until you're finished.
I was walking up Lincoln Avenue toward the Jewel yesterday when I saw a guy wearing a floppy cubs hat walking his dog. Right as we approach, his dog squats, right there on the sidewalk. I sort of diverted my attention, but the guy was feeling around in his pockets as if he didn't have a bag (he did have a Jewel shopping bag in his hand, though). I turned around about 10 seconds later to see if he was picking it up, and he was gone, but the pile remained.
Now, leaving aside the usual commentary on irresponsible dog owners in this city (who WOULD take one for a walk and not be prepared with a baggie?), what does this say about this cub fan and his disdain for his community? And this is about 25 minutes from their sacred "shrine," no less. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I thought some of you would want to hear about my encounter with this crappy cub fan.

This is not Cub fan specific behavior. It's ignorant pet owner behavior.

Isn't "crappy cub fan" sorta like "dead corpse"?

Too true... I was just extra-appalled because I saw the guy's hat.

What's wrong with using the floppy hat to pick up the crap?

I'm surprised we got through 5 posts without someone mentioning that the appropriate place for that behaviour is INSIDE the "Shrine".

I saw that in Lincoln Park all of the time. First of all its disgusting especially in the summer when the heat makes it smell worse. Secondly the reason the city fines you is that it promotes a rat problem. Dog poop is 90 some percent undigested food so rats love it. More unpicked up poop equals more rats.

Are we sure the dog did it and not the guy? We all know Cub fans go whenever and wherever they get the urge.

LOL... yeah, maybe the dog was a cubs fan, too.

May as well use the inside of the cap to pick-up crap, since there already was Crap on the outside of the cap.

I think the dog was auditioning for a September callup to Wrigley.
