Jimmy Buffett is playing Wrigley this weekend. I don't think that park will survive the bass players sound check. Those nets will be filled with concrete chunks by the first song.:cool:

Who wants to place bets on whether or not he changes the lyrics of "Margaritaville" to "Wrigleyville?" Not the same syllables I know but I would not be suprised..not a Jimmy Buffett fan anyways though so I really don't care.

"Wastin' away again in Wrigleyville...." Yeah, I could totally see it happening! Even though the syllables aren't the same, I could see him adjusting the lyrics to make them fit. Besides, it's nothing but the truth anyway, right?! :tongue:

A match made in heaven: A trite, superfluous, annoying, and undeservingly beloved entertainer playing in a trite, superfluous, annoying and undeservingly beloved ballpark.

Jimmy's band is called the Choral Reefer Band. Maybe the residual effect will leave the cubbie faithful believing they still have a chance for the wild card.

I'm not a big Buffett guy but I always found it funny how his biggest fans seem to be of the trust fund variety when he is the biggest trust fund baby in the world.

Maybe he can make as big a mess as the Stones did on Fenway! :thumbsup:

On the 28th, Pearl Jam opens up for the Rolling Stones at PNC Park. The next day the Bucs welcome the Brew Crew into town. I can see the eyes of groundskeepers everywhere swelling up with tears at the thought of that.

It's too bad -- I used to like Jimmy Buffett.

Keeping the tradition of Wrigley alive they should have a simulation concert first to see if he's healthy enough and then send him to Iowa for a couple weeks as a percautionary measure...

LOL..you're not the first one to think this. The bass alone is going to shake that already shaky foundation for 2+ hrs. Hardhats will be required for entry forever after the concert otherwise you'll have to sign a waiver stating that the Cubs aren't responsible for your injury, death, or mutilation. :cool:

What has me busting a lung over this concert is the rationale behind it. Buffet played at Fenway last year (I think it was also Labor Day Weekend) and the Red Sox went on to win the World Series. Red Sox fans said that the Buffet concert broke the Curse of the Bambino. As soon as the Red Sox won Game 4, the Flubs announced that they, too, were looking into have a Buffet concert to break all of their curses.

:chunks

This should put the Flubs over the top and get them into the post-season. They are still in it, really.......

Chicago White Sox fan Ed Magurany wears a Chicago Cubs hard hat with a chunk of concrete glued to the top during a game against Minnesota Monday in Chicago. There have been three recent incidents of concrete falling from Wrigley Field.

Um, that's Coral Reefer, not "choral". Get it - coral reef, a sea-faring term, punned into reefer for...well, you know.

I had to take the L up to the North Side late this afternoon for a tutoring session - it's the exact same fratboy crowd, but now with leis, straw hats, and grass skirts.

It took a lot of restraint not to push anyone onto the third rail. However, it was pure comedy gold to watch half of these real, knowledgeable, lifelong Chicagoans waiting on the wrong platform and taking the L in the wrong direction. :redneck

I'm hearing that you can go to Buffet tonight for face and plenty of roof-top tix available too.

I live pretty close to the urinal and had to go up to the Osco on Southport to run an errand (wearing a Sox shirt of course :redneck) and walking through the neighborhood this morning...I have to say...what a sorry looking bunch! Lots of vacuous looking frat boys walking around with open beers at 11AM and even more obese accountants in hawaiian shirts and funny hats! I really didn't think it was possible to attract a stupider looking audience than the typical weekend crowd at the shrine...but kudos to the Cubune...once again...you get the sheep to bite!

I read this morning's ST, and they talked about how Fluffett sang one song in the RF bleachers - same spot he used to frequent when he was a struggling musician playing in Chicago.

So, except for the ability to get RF bleacher seats, what's changed?

As far as concerts in ballparks go....I'll take Aerosmith/Foreigner/ACDC/Walter Egan and Mahogony Rush at Old Comiskey (circa 1978) any day.

Great reading all these posts....I'd lose my lunch completely witnessing the combination of Parrotheads and all things Cubbie.

Did anyone here @ WSI go to Buffet? Would like to see a review if so. As much as I dislike Wrigley, I do like Buffet. Despite the knocks he gets here, he seems quite harmless. The fact that he played at a bad venue makes no difference to me:smile:

That's true. A waste like Buffet wasting away in Wrigleyville with a bunch of other wastes.

Buffett's a hack. He's for people who aren't into music.
