A well disguised article to show how difficult it will be to get tickets and issues with traffic, etc. Next to the article, they HAVE to mention how the Cubs are developing a "Historic Series" for Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, etc. And, to add insult, she felt the need and TRACKED the attendance in a plot chart, comparing the Cubs to the WS.

Hangar...make sure to count this 1/2 and 1/2.

Yeah, I saw this too and had the same reaction. Diabolical. How to write an article and pretend that it's positive while pointing out a whole bunch of negative ****.

I don't see the chart online, though. Or the "Historic Series" thing. Which is good, I guess!

Edit: Now I wonder how long it'll be before someone comes up with the usual "flubsessed" charges?

What a lame article. Every game almost sold out? Traffic woes and packed trains? Gosh. Makes you wonder how Cubs, Yankees, and Red Sox fans survive the same problems. I'm sure all that stuff scares people away from Wrigley, Yankee Stadium, and Fenway. And I'm sure Yanks and Red Sox fans said "oh well, they won last year, I better give up on trying to go to a game."

That's sad for them because I don't read that article that way. It's a Sox article but the posters who replied want to nitpick the negative stuff and ignore the cool stuff from Brooks and all the other stuff in it.

I'm not a Slezak fan, but that was a decent article about what to expect and how the Sox have adapted and how the attendance and popularity is surging. The part about the flubs was a minor part of the article and while not perfect, over all it was enjoyable.

McDonough was in full on Cubpaganda mode in that article wasn't he? It was enough to make me hork up my Cap'n Crunch all over my morning paper. Hold on to your stomach Sox fans for these juicy McDonough nuggets:

"If you would have told me back in October when the White Sox were having their victory parade ... that five months later we'd sell 597,000 tickets in a single day, it's staggering,'' McDonough said. "We're talking about a different level of passion and loyalty with this franchise. It's indescribable. Cubs fans are a study in resiliency, patience, loyalty and unconditional love.''

"When the Cubs do win the World Series, it will be the biggest team victory in the history of team sports. It will be seismic.''

"It's a crazy phenomenon. People look at this organization, and there's a mystique.''

"When you walk into the ballpark, you see things you never see anywhere else,'' he said. "The ivy, the hand-operated scoreboard, the bleacher culture. You hear an organ that still plays a major role during games.''

Yep, and McDonough knows his target audience well by feeding these quotes to the "popularity = awesome" mentality that most Cubs fans have. After last year's World Series win for the Sox, honestly, what else do the Cubs have left to hang their hats on? That's right, popularity and a crumbling dump of a stadium. We Sox fans are enjoying our trophy and have plenty of room for more. :cool:

"When the Cubs do win the World Series, it will be the biggest team victory in the history of team sports. It will be seismic.''

seismic? Because this will only occur AFTER the Yellowstone caldera explodes and cover Chicago with 6 feet of volcanic ash.

"It's a crazy phenomenon. People look at this organization, and there's a mystique.''

I used to see "culture" like that on the "Girls Gone Wild" ads on late night TV. Before that, there was a culture like that growing in the back of my bachelor refridgerator. This must now grow along the flower beds of Wrigleyville residents, "watered" during every homestand!

Voodoo. If you saw the huge differences between the two articles, you wouldve seen the difference. I read the "Wrigley" pull-out piece ...........
and I was basically sickened to my stomach. While the "The Cell" piece was informative and to the point, the Wrigley piece was something out of an infomercial, you wouldnt believe how they pulled out all the stops on this piece, if we can even call it that anymore. The entire article, was about the pomp and majesty of the park, the park, the ivy, the park, the ivy, the fans, the park, and only in a sentence at the end was it mentioned that tour buses from iowa are responsible for all of this, and maybe the people are there for the park and not necessarily the flubs.

The other thing that made me sick about Sleazaks pieces were the headlines ............did anyone copy them from the backpages? "though sox win series, theres still Cubmania in chicago" "597,000 tickets sold in one day!" (note this is down from the 600,000 they were pumping to the masses a couple weeks ago. They make sure to mention Harry Caray all over the article (makes you think, what wouldve happened had the SOX not just let one of their signature voices just walk away)

Carol Sleazak ............ is a terrible "writer".

I agree with you. i enjoyed the article. Although, I generally don't like White Sox articles being linked with the flubs.

However, I thought that it was an excellent idea to do the attendance graph because it showed how the Sox completely outdrew the flubs in the 50's and 60's. Also, it showed that most of the time, attendance at both parks has been fairly close.

Thus, for the flubby fans reading the article, they can see attendance beyond the last 10 years. Maybe, a few will grasp some fallacies that "This has always been a cubs town so it will never change" or "The Sox have no fans".

Anyway, considering it was written by a flubs fan, I thought it was ok.

Nancy didnt "cave" in .........it was her idea. shes a wonderful person who happens to be the most creative and talented baseball organist in DECADES. She also doesnt start trouble and doesnt want to put the SOX in a bad position (abruptly firing her) and offered out of the blue to play less. This is a person who loves music and loves her instrument, being able to play your instrument for a team you love, and be paid for it, is heaven. To me this is a fiasco, but at least its playing out like this, eventually phasing her out and not just getting rid of her cold turkey and becoming another bad pr move in the future. Nancy is thankful for all the years shes been able to play anything she wants
and the fans love her. But the SOX want to go pre-recorded canned music and theres an obvious conflict. I just hope we keep her around in the front office/marketing department and dont let that other team try to steal her from us ...............

Firing and Phasing out. those are two different words. I personally believe nancy was getting really uncomfortable being only able to play for 15 seconds every inning (or whatever her count is now), and made this offer to them in order to avoid a conflict. Its a situation that was mostly handled nicely, but the SOX should be trying to USE HER MORE instead of less. She gives the ballpark its "feel". For those of us who were able to see the old park, how cool was it to walk into the park, seeing opposing team in bp, and hearing Nancy just jammin' on the organ ? Thats what I always remember about the old park ...........the smell of cigars, hotdogs, the scoreboard all with Nancy in the background. Theres more truth in my one sentence here, than the 2 pages of Informercial put out this weekend.

Gosh, I don't read it that way at all. It is my understanding that it was becoming too much of a burden for her to do all the games. If she is uncomfortable with only being able to play for 15 seconds, then why would she want to play even less? It isn't like it will be only Nancy playing on days she is there. There will still be plenty of canned music. Also, Brooks said she can stay on as long as she wants.

I guess I'm a little confused...

Let me see if I understand this "Phasing out":
Nancy plays less + Nancy says explicitly she's getting tired (due to age + increasing travel times after games to get home) + Brooks says she'll have a job as long as she wants = Hangar finds a conspiracy.

Actually, the way I heard it, the "Evil Blue Corporation" has gotten in Nancy's ear and is convincing her to back off from her White Sox duties to enable them to claim "the longest-running organist in town" title. Tribune trucks have been spotted outside her house EVERY MORNING leaving packages wrapped in plastic, so it MUST be true! Just more EVIDENCE of their FEAR that their hold on this town is WEAKENING.

It did seem a bit tame when compared to the other SCFM tales I've read about.

I guess there is always next time...:D:

It did seem a bit tame when compared to the other SCFM tales I've read about.

The moral of the story is: "Make sure Henry always has a full beer glass."

Just wait 'til Saturday night at Puffer's. If there's a Cub fan stupid enough to show his/her face in that place the night before we raise Championship banners, Hangar will let that person have it, I'm sure if it.

I did? Oh man, I don't remember that. Perhaps I should have taken some of my beers and poured them in your glass.:tongue:

I talked to him the other night and he said he's just going to wing it. Nonetheless, I'm also looking forward to what our very own chisoxmike has to say, particularly regarding Joe Crede. Get to know him just a little and you'll understand why I referenced that. :cool:
