Hmm, looks pretty close!

Typical Cub fan, not watching the game.

What ballpark are they at ? It's not the Urinal.

I'm pretty sure it's Colorado.

Looks like Coors Field

It's gotta be Colorado, their sign makes fun of the Rockies.

Grateful guests they are, always looking to get invited back....

I was going to pose this as a trivia question to the pep's here at WSI, but figured it was too easy. This is not a jab at you for not knowing, no offense. But it is Coors, you can tell by the light tower structures, seats (look close you can see the purple line of seats marking 1 mile altitude), the city background, and and roof line, just to name a few things.

Well and if you look closely at the LED screens along the bottom of the upperdeck it says coloradorockies.com. Though you kinda have to squint a bit to see it.

Looks like they don't know how to spell the special Old Style brewing method either - notice how they take a couple different stabs at it (and notice I didn't even give it a try!).

And ya gotta love the cute blue "I Believe in the Curse" wristband he's wearing!

I like how he's wearing it up on his arm where he normally would wear his wristband. All he's missing is a polo shirt with the collar up. Come to think of it, I'm surprised they don't make cub jerseys with polo shirt type collars. Some enterprising company could make a fortune with that idea.

Old Style kräusening-related banner at a baseball game?? Those two clowns didn't even need any kind of team-identifying gear to out them as Cubs fans.

I don't think it's the same guy. His little necklace and bracelet are missing, and the Colorado guy doesn't look quite as dorky as thumb boy. Could be though.

Yeah Jerko, but look at the smile. Something about it. Also, does anyone know how old the original picture is? This guy's face is a little less full, but that could be the result of aging.

Athough of course, one could argue that if he'd matured at all, why would he still be a Cubs fan? :D:

I don't know, the Coloradork looks like he has a gap in his teeth, whereas Wrigdork just looks completley and totally moronic and gapless. Hard to tell though. I see the similarities. Where did that Colorado picture come from; I'm sure pud-boy has a blog somewhere.

I actually thought the poster, aside from its obvious pro-flub bias and the misspelling, was sort of clever. :duck:

It prolly wouldn't be hard to spot dozens of characters like "frat boy" at any Cubs game: decked out in his Cubby jersey and shades, rally cap on by the 6th, heading for the bars by the 8th, wizzing on someone's property a couple of hours later. A species unto itself.

It's Wrigley Field West.

I bet they look down on Coors Field because they don't sell Old Style and the place doesn't smell like piss.

Either that or you could buy a bunch of cheap sweater vests and sew a Cubs patch on it. A few of the Cubune writers would buy those for $50 each!

He actually carries a pen for autographs? These look like the corporate types that probably gave him his playoff tickets last year.

Plus, two other things:

1. It's clean.

2. There's nobody there!!
