View Full Version : Went to the Flubbies game tonight

My roommate scored free tickets so I really didn't care, they were free. Pittsburgh completely blew the game. I knew it was over when Marte took the mound.

Lots of cellphones and people not paying attention to the game. Especially the ladies on the left of us. They just didn't care and left in the 5th to hit a bar. They said it was even their first game ever, and they left in the 5th?!

Also, lots of sox-hating going on. I thought they didn't care about the Sox?

On another note, Marshall looks to be a solid pitcher for them. Big guy with a mean curve and workable changeup. Not a bad fastball. Get him away from Larry "pitcher killer" Rothchild and I think he could be around for a while. Also met some Cubs fans that I had a nice time talking with. They knew baseball pretty well and one even shook my hand when I told him when I was a Sox fan, saying congratulations. They went on to admit they were envious of the lineup the Sox had. One guy even went so far to say he'd take Thome over Lee cause he makes everyone around him much better (he pointed out Konerko's start versus last year).

All in all, not a terrible night for a free ticket, besides the Pirates blowing it.

What else do they have now? We won the war...PERIOD!

It feels great to see our boyz as the kings of MLB (you should ask those giving you grief how it feels like to see your team win it all)! :D:

Of course Marshall just faced the Pirates, perhaps the worst team in MLB. And this is the second time Marshall has faced the lousy Pirates. The only good offense Marshall has faced was the Cardinals. The local media and Cub fans will pronounce Marshall a Cy Young candidate. I'll wait to see how he does against a few good offenses, not that there are many in the NL though.

That's insulting to Royals fans who should proudly and correctly say that their team is the worst in baseball, and possibly the worst team ever

Were you wearing your Sox gear to the game? If so, I think it's understandable for Cubs fans to heckle you if you're wearing Sox stuff. Lots of posters on this board hate it when Cubs fans wear Cubs stuff to Sox games, so I don't think their reaction is unreasonable.

That could have been said about last years Royals team. That is not the case this year though, not that they are any good but they are just not "possibly the worst team ever."

KC 5-18 .217
PITTS 7-20 .259

So, at this point by their records, PITTS is only slightly better, despite playing in the weak ass NL.

Comparing hitters, position by position, KC and Pitts, actually IMHO the KC and Pitts are split on how they are doing so far this season.

LF: Bay over Brown
CF: Robinson over Duffy
RF: Sanders over Burnitz
3B: Teahen over Randa
SS: Wilson over Berroa
2B: Grudz over Castillo
1B: Wilson over Mientk.
C: Cota over Buck

I had free tix to go to the game tonight. Booed the heck out of Marte. Still don't like him. Grabbed this pic from my phone of two Flub Fans during the game. Now remember this is DURING THE GAME and not between innings. And they are not reading the sports section...

No I wasn't wearing any Sox gear. And there were random "Sox suck" and "F the Sox" chants in the stands.

Oh yeah, well, that makes sense. I mean, after all, all they've done lately is WIN THE WORLD SERIES, &currently have one of the best records in baseball; While their beloved lil' blue ones finished under .500 last year, have 2 90+ loss seasons in the past 6 years, haven't won a championship in 98 years, but are currently surging at 14-10. :rolleyes:

Ok, free tickets, I understand, but still one question........The Sox were playing Cleveland last night, why go to a Flubs game when there is an awesome game against our division rivals on TV? I could see going to another game in town if the Sox had an off day, but come on there are more important things going on than going to a Flub game.

If I had free tickets to a baseball game (sorry I love baseball), I would love to go to the game and get out of the house, rather than sit in front of the tv. I'd probably tape the game, and watch it later. Let's not get on the guy for getting out and getting some fresh air (even if the air wasn't that fresh around those parts).

Because some people like to see live baseball, even if it is *gasp* the Cubs?! Because there are devices now that allow you record the television broadcast and watch the game at another time? Because it was a beautiful night in Chicago and it was better to spend it sitting outside watching baseball than inside watching tv?

I'm sorry I don't understand this, I could never watch a Cubs game when I know the Sox are on. Yes you could tape the game, but you would know the outcome of the game with it being posted at the ballpark, it would ruin everything. It was not a beautiful night in Chicago last night.

I also got free tix to the game last night and we were right behind home plate. Too good a set of seats to pass-up and considering the weekend blastings the Cubs took and the way the Pirates always play them tough, I figured it would be a good time.

Actually had a real good time, wore my Buehrle All-Star jersey (dark-blue with red and white) and not a single person made a stink about it...

I had to get the Sox updates via my phone and friends texting me the real-time updates and yes, I knew the game was over when they brought Marte into the game.

Different strokes for different folks. Its not like I'm less of a Sox fan because of it. Did I mention the ticket was free? I'd go to the ballet if someone gave me a free ticket.

I went to Wrigley a week ago Monday when the Cubs played Florida; a good friend of mine scored tickets. All I saw was one vendor outside the premises on Addison selling the usual "Sox Suck" crap. Didn't hear any anti-Sox chants, comments or anything like that. Actually had an OK time, although I did get a little sick to my stomach when the Cubs scored six runs in the eighth to beat the Marlins. :cool:

I'm with you. I love the Sox as much as anybody on this board, and if going to a live game makes me any less of a fan in anyones eyes, so be it. I'd rather go watch a Royals and D-Rays game in person than watch any game on tv. Every team plays 162 games a season, I'm sure I could catch some highlights for the Sox when I got home and then watch the next game on tv. One hundred and sixty two games!

That way they get to wear their Cub gear then run home and post their experience on a White Sox board.

I don't understand the big deal about going to an occasional Cubs game?? I go to between 25 and 35 Sox games a year (more now that I'm a STH). Does that mean that if I go to a Cubs game (for free mind you), I am no longer a Sox fan, but a "Chicago" fan?? Homey Don't Play Dat!!!!

I went last Tuesday to Wrigley, I was interested in seeing Dontrelle Willis pitch. I hardly watched the game, as I was busy doing what Cubs fans do....eat, get drunk, smoke cigs and flirt with girls:smile: ...All in all I had a great time. It was my first time their in over 3 years, and its so close to me, that why not go (especially if its for free). After the game, I went to Mullins got more toasted and watched the Sox tear up Seattle:cool:

Ever drink a Bud product? You're contributing towards a company that has stock in the Cubs. Ever use a cellular service other than U.S. Cellular? You're taking away from the Sox bottom line.

C'mon now. The ticket was free and its a baseball game. I don't give a crap who is on the field if its free and 10 minutes from where I live.

I don't think anyone said anything about anyone being less of a Sox fan because they like going to watch the Cubs or another major league team play. I was just stating with the Sox playing Cleveland on Monday night I would have not missed that game on TV, but that is me. You are correct, different strokes(hated that show:D: )
