I wasn't at the game today, so were their any incidents with the fans in the
seats or in the parking lots?

I was in the left field bleachers. In my season tickets in section 163, row 11. Didn't see anything bad before, during or after.

Just some good natured insulting of flubs fans, who did not respond.

Also, might I add, Iguchi's 2nd home run ball was hit RIGHT AT MY SEAT.

I timed my jump wrong and the ball bouced off my left thumb.

A mad scrum followed, and the dude sitting right in front of me got the ball!!!


OH WELL! GREAT GAME!!!

Were there a lot of verbal and any physical jabs between Cubs and Sox fans after the fight cleared up.

I was in the upper deck for the game, and most of the fans were just trying to figure out what was going on and who had been ejected. The play happened so quick and it was tough to see who did what in the brawl. Tadahito's slam probably helped calm down any potential tension between fans as well...too busy celebrating and high-fiving.

No fights in the outfield seats in right field. First time ever that I saw none.

None from what I saw. Most Cub fans called it a clean play by AJ. Except for one of the Cub fans I was with who is never wrong. Despite the fact that the media and her own Dusty Baker said it was a clean play and that Barrett was in the wrong...

I was at the game too and was surprised at the low level of Cubfan-Soxfan needling. My seat was way up in the upper deck behind the RF foul pole and so I couldn't see Barrett's sucker punch. We just watched the sac-fly play develop and saw AJ arrive at the plate at about the same time as the ball. My view shifted to the umpire to see the call, and when I looked back there was a fight going on.

Our section was madly looking for somebody with a radio to find out what happened. Pieces of the story began to emerge as some people who had used cellphones to call friends with TVs learned that AJ had been hit. As you might imagine, that made us angrier. Then the umpire crew futzed around for 15 minutes while no announcements were made. The common sentiment was, "C'mon! Let's play ball!"

But through all that, and for the rest of the game and afterwards, I didn't see any evidence of ugly behavior. Happy to report that, but I have to admit I was surprised.

My brother and sister were at the game, they said it was pretty normal.

It took them about 15 minutes to decide to get Barrett off the field. If this incident happened at the Urinal, and it was AJ who was punched, allowing him to remain on the field for 15 minutes and warm up a pitcher would have resulted in another 30 minute delay getting all the garbage thrown onto the field cleaned up. There weren't as many Cubs fans there as in the past, but I think there's was no trouble for the most part because even they could clearly see Barrett was in the wrong. I had one sitting next to me and he was shocked that for a little while it appeared Barrett wasn't even going to be tossed.

I was sitting 10 rows behind you & almost the whole row behind me were cubs fans & they had nothing to say whatsoever.

Nothing to report from Section 113. Very few Cub fans there in the first place.

Yeah, I was at the game and I was also surprised by the low number of Cub fans. The few that were in my section were pretty quiet.

Had this happened when both teams basically sucked, I'm guessing all hell would've broken loose in the stands. But if you read the Cub blogs and boards, it seems most Cub fans are currently too demoralized to continue this nonsense. Their team not only sucks, but appears to be yet another squad full of jagbags. What are they gonna say?

The cubs do have some fans who know and love their baseball and this team is just killing them.

My brother and his girlfriend were there, down the left field line 9 rows up and they said the people were tame for the most part and just trying to figure out what the heck was going on. He did hear Sox fans yelling, "Cubs suck!!" and "Barrett, you're a *****!" but other than that, it wasn't too bad.

no fights, i was in section 129, sitting up in the 33rd row.

however, there was a point in the game where jermaine bobbled a ball off of a single and failed to throw out, i believe jones, i can't remember specifically, running into second base. some cub fan replied, "you see, that just shows how weak dye's arm is, he couldn't even throw out one of our slowest players."

yeah, that was a big mistake on his part, he caught hell from my brother and i for the rest of the game.

I was sitting in 123 and got a good view of the fight. The cell was rockin during the fight. When gooch hit the GS the place was up for grabs. There was not one thing cub fans could say. It was great!!!

Yes, there was. After the dust settled, all, and I mean ALL, the Cub fans in my section ran like hell to the gift shop and bought Sox clothing and burned all of their Cubbie blue in a bonfire.

Nada in 524. But some Kubbie Klown was lost and tried coming down our row ( I knew he wasn't in our row). He had a tray with 5 beers on it and was spilling all over the place. When he tried coming my way I said "Your not sitting here 'brah.'" He promptly turned around and walked away. He was spilling his beer like crazy and everyone was laighing and mocking him. He was totally drunk.

Yea, he spilled some of that on me in 526. And sadly, it was 1 Cub fan with about 3 Sox fans. All of which were dolts. When they spilled some margaritas on me in the 8th and said, "My Fault, sorry, my fault," I turned around and said, "Well it's obviously your fault, you're the one who is wasted."

They were loud, obnoxious, annoying, and knew little to nothing about baseball. And sadly, 3 of them were Sox fans.

Some dudes behind me spilled a beer on Saturday and it ran down under my seat. I had my bag under there and it took me a good 5 minutes to realize it was swimming in beer. Dropped beers will happen but at least have the courtesy to alert the person in front of you in case they have something under their seat. I sort of called the guy out and he put on the "Who, me?" routine. Yeah, that giant wet spot at your feet that flows under my seat is a bit of a giveaway.

Yea, we had 3 spillages. I felt like I was at a bar. One was during the fight, which is understandable b/c everyone jumped up when the punch was thrown by Barrett. But the other 2 were just a bunch of drunks acting like fools. Hence my rather crass remark the last time it happened.

He was a dolt! Half the time he had no clue where he was at!

They were also the ones who spent the first inning or two yelling at the top of their lungs, "Come on GARCIA!" Finally someone told them to shut-up.

I did see a cubs fan get tossed around 506 today, and there was a ton of security in the bleachers today around the bar, but I am not sure what happened there.

There was a guy in 542, just 3 seats down from me, who almost got tossed, but he was a Sox fan. He went on a 5 minute rant just screaming "Cubs fans suck ****" I was embarressed for him to be a Sox fan. I was like, just watch the game.

I was in 508 for Sunday's flopola, and I might have seen the same guy getting escorted out. I think he threw somebody's shirt off the upper deck.
