I don't wanna sound Flubsessed, but it was hilarious to see the Flubbies lose on a 3-run HR by Mike Piazza in the top of the 9th with nobody out against Ryan Dempster. The Padres won 4-3 after Hoffman shut down the Cubs 1-2-3 in the 9th among a huge amount of boos mostly directed at Juan Pierre.

:smile: That's comedy!

Who the hell did Ryan Dempster think he was pitching to?? He just threw a hanging cookie to Mike Piazza like he had Juan Pierre Kind of power.

I'm not sure management cares about booing. When there aren't enough people for the boos to be heard, it will be a problem.

Awesome. I finished practicing with my band, and started to drive home, and was cursing all of the traffic, when I realized everyone was wearing cubjunk, and remembered there was a game. I wondered who won the game, and say lots of dreary faces .............. MADE ME HAPPY

i understand how people get upset by constantly bringing up the cubs because we are only supposed to be watching the sox :rolleyes: ... but it's hard to not watch the cubs when they are on TV all the time. i enjoy seeing a lot of the NL teams i usually don't get the opportunity to watch like the marlins, padres, brewers, etc. it's the same scenario with the packers. since green bay is always on fox sundays, i watch their games, i don't like them, but i just enjoy watching football. for me, it's not about watching how the cubs do, it's the chance to watch teams i do not see on a regular basis.

They were booing Pierre? But Juan is very fast, and he has such an infectious, happy-go-lucky personality. How could they?

I actually only watch them when they're losing like this. It's absolutely hysterical. When the Cubs are winning, I pay no attention. It's much more fun when they take the pipe.

I almost fell off the couch today when Piazza went deep.

Maybe the Cubune will stop talking about how Dumpster is the greatest closer in the game now.

No teal necessary, Flubs fans and the cubune think this guy is Rivera, it's pathetic.

And might I add, the flubs are incredibly terrible.

I'm with you...when I heard they blew another one...I taped SportsNite...so I wouldn't miss the highlights. Favorite quote was Dusty moaning about the "baskets"....it's even better when the "Shrine" is one of the reasons they lost!

It's great to see the return of "Heartbreaking Cub Loss" after all these weeks of "Humiliating Cub Blowout." Plus, the fans are reacting like pampered frat boys are supposed to. Can't see them canning Dusty and eating $3M of salary, though.

Painful for who? For a Sox fan? I love every second of it, and I'm not even watching it.

Dusty moaned about the baskets? He obviously has no sense of Cub history. First of all, many Cub home runs have come courtesy of the basket. Has that ever occurred to Busty Faker? I remember one big one that came at our expense when Gascan gave up the grand slam to Ricky Gutierrez.

For those of you who don't know, the baskets were installed after the 1969 season. The Bleacher Bums used to walk atop the outfield wall, and Mr. Wrigley was afraid they'd fall onto the field. So he had the top of the outfield wall arched so that people could not walk on top of it. The baskets were installed to catch anyone who tried to walk on the wall.

Did Dusty actually complain about the baskets? Does he realize that both teams play on the same field with the same conditions? Geez.

Cubs losing, while sometimes entertaining... doesn't make the Sox win.

This is the same silly organization that way back in 1884 decided to count certain ground rule doubles as home runs. The team hit 13 HRs in 1883 but 142 in 1884. Hey, we'll score more runs, right? They seem to have forgotten that the other team plays by the same rule. Cubs (White Stockings at the time) finished 62-50 that year, 5th in the league.

The rules changed in 1885 and the team only hit 54 HRs but went 87-25, best in the league.

Goon,

I've had my Padres hat on since Steve Garvey took Lee Smith deep in Game 4 of the 1984 NLCS. "Cotto to the wall ....... there will be a tomorrow!" Don Drysdale play-by-play call of that HR on NBC. It was a beautiful thing.

I had won Padres World Series tickets at work. That was a wonderful Saturday night and weekend that made them worth something.

I almost never watch the Cubs, but I was drawn to the train wreck just now. 8-0 Padres. Cubs int. walk a hitter to face Piazza. :?: Of course, he gets a hit and the next guy lands one in the baskets.

But, who cares? Eddie Vedder is singing the 7th inning stretch! That's was baseball is all about.

I saw on Gameday that they hit the HR but did it really go in the basket? If so, that is just too funny.

"Basket?" That's no "basket" it's a chain-link Cub fan restraint system.

Not only that, but probably 75% of Ryne Sandburg's homeruns landed in the bozo baskets. The same clowns who said "a homer is a homer" are now bitching that Piazza's shot was somehow cheap or shouldn't have counted because it "only landed in the basket".

Are you kidding me? I laugh hard every time they lose. It never gets old. EVER. And they've been doing this for a long long long time mind you. The fact that the Sheep are starting to just NOW get mad is sheer HILARITY.
