I am not one to really make Cubs posts or anything of that sort but I thought I would share this. So I am going to get some nachos and all of the sudden I see a blue stripped jersey. I am thinking to myself this can not be for real. Sure enough...I look over and it is a guy in a Prior jersey. I had to take a picture of it because I could not believe that I was really looking at this guy in a Cubs jersey..let alone Prior. So here is the link to the picture. The pic is to big so I am just going to put hte link to my picture web site. Feel free to take a look at the other pictures from the ring ceremony and opening day.

That's crazy. Just to let you know, the date on your site is a April 3 instead of April 4.

Based on some of the other posts, this guy had some competition!

Oh, there were a lot of dumb fans today.

While standing in line to get in, I had the displeasure of being in front of a group of young guys, probably there just to get drunk. We were on the first base side, and one of the guys gave the middle finger to the White Sox greats mural and started yelling out "Big Skirt! Why the **** is he up there?" Another imbecile said "yeah, I can't believe they put him up there next to Jackson." So as I stand longer in line, the morons keep going. They are not only holding middle fingers in the air whenever someone tries to take pictures from the ramps, but swearing left and right (among many children). They then decided to start making fun of everyone who walks by on the ramps. This included ripping on lots of fat people, a few racial slurs against Mexicans, and calling anyone who's hair they didn't like a hillbilly. These *******s were an embarrassment to humanity, let alone Sox fans. If I wasn't the mild mannered guy I am, those clowns would have left the park with their teeth in their hands.

At least he spelled it right. Anyone remember the "Pryor" jersey guy from 2003?

That isn't just an isolated umbecile. Apparently, someone was selling knock off shirts outside the urinal for such players as "MaddOx" WoodS" and PrYor". What is next, #25 Leigh? :rolleyes:

There was a guy sitting a few rows behind me that was making really obnoxious comments the whole game. Once he actually said something pretty funny (whoever has #2 for Cleveland was at bat, and he yelled "You'll never be #1!") but the rest was really annoying.
There was "Hey, Hafner ****s ****"
"Garcia is a ****ing bum!"
There was also one point were someone was talking on the phone, and this guy yells "Hey, get off the phone! This isn't Wrigley!"

I saw that Cub fan too. People were screaming at him at one point when he stood up during the game.

That guy was sitting two rows in front of me. He got littered with boos every time he walked up and down the aisle

Were you at the North-most Gate 3? I remember hearing some getting all pissy about Frank Thomas being up there and being pretty damn annoying for most of the time. Were they like 4-5 guys (one with a Jenks jersey) and one girl taking pictures every 20 seconds?

Yep, I was at gate 3. I don't know how many guys were in the group, but it was at least 3. I didn't see what they were wearing because they were behind me. I am a young guy, I was there with a friend my age, and I was embarrased of those asses. I was embarrased that children had to see that. I am going to be a lot more sensitive about that when I have kids. I don't care if you are dropping F-bombs in like crazy in a bar, you shouldn't do it at the ballpark and you shouldn't do it in front of children that aren't yours. I'm surprised no parents said anything to them.

Yeah I'm pretty sure we're talking about the same people, I was right next to them to the right and god yes they were annoying ALL they did was take pictures and talk about how they are going to put them on MySpace and how they'll have to comment on each others pics after the game. Then towards the end they started getting pretty damn drunk, I didn't hear most of the stuff you said because I put on my mp3 player to drown out all the frat boy bandwagoners

(I sound like such an old man I'm only 19 :( )

I didn't hear them say anything about myspace. Maybe we saw different jack asses. The fools I saw yelled at anyone taking pictures. Also, when a guy stood at the top of the ramps and pumped the people up, they started yelling jump. "Come on, jump. You are a ****ing loser, you have nothing to live for, anyway." Like I said before, nothing but class.

I saw that same guy walking around (I actually thought I might be in that picture). I didn't say anything, I mean, that's borderline insane. When I go to Cub games I wear neutral clothes, not Sox stuff.

Wow were they drunk when they sewed the letters on that jersey? Its got the correct goofy-looking font for the numbers but to me the name really looks crooked or uneven, or something (maybe its the way the jersey is wrinkled but I don't think so).

I can't see paying all that money for a jersey and putting up with it if the lettering is bad. But we ARE talking the dumbest fans in the majors here...

I think that's the same guy in the Prior jersey I saw. I was up in Section 506, Row 13. About 3 or 4 sections over, we saw some dope in a Prior shirt get up, and get BOOOOOED unmercifully every time.

Ya I def heard my fair share of rude comments made to him and rightfully so. I would never go into their stadium and wear a Sox shirt unless it was the Crosstown Classics. Then they have the nerve to say we are rude fans. Stuff IT!

I would. It would have a nice rendering of the WS tropy on it. I would then proceed to point to it any time I was bothered, but would otherwise shut up and enjoy baseball.

On some levels I thought the MQ (Moron Quotient) was a little higher yesterday. Was seated next to a group that must have been trying to set a record for beer consumption. Fair enough, until a) they took that "mess with the vendor" approach (suddenly, when the guy suggested he wouldn't be back, suddenly they weren't all better than the vendor), and b) they started throwing peanuts around.

My surprise moment: three really young guys sat down in front of me. I expected general rowdiness, but they watched the game. One noted my scorecard, and said, "Sir? Was that Cintron that had the hit?" Reminded me you can't always judge the book....

The guy in the pic looks like he's wearing a West Coast Choppers or Orange County Choppers hat, which to me is almost a bigger offense than wearing a Cubs jersey.

And I'd hate to break it to everyone, but we can all expect a much higher Moron Quotient at Sox games this year because of their success. The bandwagoners are out in full force.

We were in 509 and heard that guy and the boos that welcomed him. After the 4th inning, he seemed to have disappeared.

Edit: I did remember getting a laugh in our section saying he was there to simulate watching a real baseball game.

Yes, but it's up to us to put them in their place and show them the ropes. A moron is a moron, but some people just don't know the difference and need to be taught how to act in our stadium. I went off on two guys yesterday for peeing in the sinks and made complete asses out of them. They hopefully won't be doing that again. We shouldn't just sit there and take it though. Help them along.

And to think I was already teary-eyed when the game started. It was a nice surprise. Then again, I've only been to one park where someone saw my scorecard and asked, "What the hell are you doing?" (and that was in the 70's, when I was nine.)

I expected it to be much worse.

Everything was fine by us. Nice mix of young and old fans with everybody watching a fairly boring game. Relatively few calls to throw HR balls onto the field. The worst I can say is that there was an unusually high number of people getting excited when a Sox player hit a routine fly ball out, but even that wasn't as bad as I expected.

I actually think that we have a real chance to educate some folks and make them proper Sox fans.

I like stuff like that. I scored the game and the dad in front of me kept asking me how so-and-so did. (For some reason, the scoreboard flashed a lot of ads instead of telling us how so-and-so did in his previous at-bats.) It worked out nicely, as his wife had binoculars and I'd ask her who was warming up. (My eyes are not that great, except when Jenks was warming up. He's kinda hard to miss from a space shuttle, let alone Section 509.)

man either I'm getting old or this crap is happening too much these days...
probably a combination of both...

sounds exactly like what I heard in 518 on Tuesday-

the guy was out of his seat & was talking on phone near front row/ledge of UD entry...
didn't think he was bothering anybody as it was between innings & he wasn't waving
(guess he could've/should've went to concourse)

then these dimbulbs yelled some obscenity to a guy wearing a Cubs jersey in RF, several sections over (509?)... something about Boys Town-
like he can hear them anyways... :rolleyes:

get a clue ya witless morons :mad:

I echo the setiment about the carrying your teeth home-
man 5-10 years ago it would've been a rumble, but I've since lived & learned... a little anyways :tongue:
