I know this comes as a surprise. I was at the Friday Sox/Cubs game and sat in some really nice season ticket seats (right behind First Base). Sitting around me were older Cub ST holders. The men on my right who were all well over 60 years and in the First inning when Gooch came up, the old timers yelled at Marshall to "hit him in the head!" They did the same thing that same inning when AJ came up. Now, if they had been 20-something frat boys I would not have cared, but for grown men of that age to pull this was appalling! At Comiskey we yell at Garland and company to "strike him out!" we never order one of our pitchers to seriously maim the other team's players.

Then the guy sitting next to my friend (who told my friend that he never talks to Sox fans), started commenting to my friend about the uhser's breasts and speculated as to her bra size and so forth. In case you're thinking "that's what guys talk about" guess again. My friend is a woman! This drunk goof was checking out the women and telling my WOMAN friend (who is a total stranger to this guy) about it!

Real class.

I don't believe I ever heard a Sox fan call for the pitcher to throw one at Sosa's head.

How pathetic is this? However, Dump and friend, look at it this way; these are fans of a team that has always been pathetic and will always be pathetic. "Losers" doesn't even come close; team and fans.

That said, sorry I wasn't there, especially as this old fart moron didn't even have the "frat boy" excuse to hide behind. I would probably have started asking that antique loser about whether or not that Viagra was working for him. (Bet it's not!)

Your friend has more class in her little finger than that guy has in his tiny little..well, I don't want to get banned, so I'll leave it at that.

OH gosh...this does not bode well for me. My new boss is a Cub Fan and I was kidding her today about the fact that they are painting her office "cubbie blue" I think I should be afraid!:dtroll:

I think it'd be pretty naiive to think that this stuff doesn't happen at Sox games too.

You'd be surprised at some of the stuff I see while working.

Classless, yes. Just them, no.

My point is that I expected more MATURITY from the older crowd.

BTW, the guy who was scoping the women was in his 40's by my estimate.

I expect the same thing but there are plenty of adults who don't know how to act when they leave their house. Unfortunately some of these people attend games in every sport at every level and act like assbags. Singling out only the Cub fans isn't fair. JMO though.

I saw a trixie flip off an old lady and call her a bitch because the lady asked her to sit down (the trixie was standing up and talking on her cell for half the game).

Not today's game, but at a Cubs/Stros game. It was pathetic.

I was in the bleachers for today's game and I was in the second row and the guys in the first row were standing up for a lot of the game eventhough they kept being asked to sit down by anyone behind them and all the ushers. Their comeback was that they bought the tickets and they deserved to do whatever they want.

This is perhaps why the average IQ of Chicagoland residents is as low as it is.

I think I know the older fans this guy is describing. I sat in the very section during one of last year's games at Wrigley, and this guy who had to be in his 60s and who I was told was a season ticket holder, spent the entire game yelling at the Sox dugout, bullpen pitchers, and fans that "Sox are trash! Go back to the South Side you trash!" This went on the entire game and even Cub fans in his area told him to shut-up, but he kept this up for 9 innings.

I was at the Cub vs Sox Game today. What I found a little disturbing and had not seen this before was fans throwing Foul Balls back when the Sox were at bat. It happened twice. Both of these came from the upper deck. Absolutely no regard for anyones safety. This must be normal behavior at Cubs games because the Cubs fans around me did not seem surprised.

Yeah they showed that on tv. Hawk was sayin how dumb that was and DJ said how he was sure a little kid woulda loved to have that souvenier ball. The worst part I noticed was the Cub fans were cheering when the moron threw it back!! I'm sure they all talked about it on the drive home in their Jettas, drinkin their wine coolers, sayin,"like that was so cool when that guy threw that foul ball back, I was like NO WAY!! I just couldnt believe he did that, like oh my god how cool is that!!"

You know, I go to a ball game to cheer on the Sox, drink a few beers, have a good time and never look for trouble. That's all. Guess I'm weird.

I saw that. That and garbage being thrown onto the field seems to be accepted behavior at that dump. No wonder why the gulls are circling that place like its a garbage dump. I wonder what will happen when they throw a foul ball back and it hits Derek Lee or Zambrano or some other player in the head. I guess the Cubs don't mind if it keeps the attention off the on-field results.

There were some classic comments from Farmer, as well as DJ this weekend in regards to Cub fans. Saturday, after AJ's homerun, while the game was delayed due to the Bud Lite Bleacher trash throwing some of their own relatives (trash) on the field, Farmer sounded disgusted, and said something to the effect that "Cub fans are disgusting". Then, Sunday, when the idiot threw a foul ball from Konerko back onto the field, DJ said "that's not a good idea. I'm pretty sure the little kid sitting by you could have used it if you didn't want it". Man oh man are Cub fans a wretched bunch....

If it was at the Cell and the foul balls were being thrown back from the upper deck, the media would have portrayed Sox fans as cavemen with no brains:angry:

I was smoking during the game yesterday and I saw security escorting out a guy who apparently called an old lady a very foul word that I couldnt even attempt to repeat. Ontop of the guy getting in securities face for touching him. Along with him I saw about 8 more people get kicked out all being Cubs fans. We had an obnoxious guy in front of us who would not sit down and shut up. Kept screaming Paulie you suck. My brother replied with a quite a few comments one being are you guys in any room to say a team or player sucks when youve one 29 games all year and only a few games at home all month. Then a group of people turned around and said hey Sox fans Detroit won again. Oh really? Thanks. However we are closer to first then the Cubs can even imagine.

I heard quite a few people say this was exactly the boost the Cubs needed. Funny that is what they said last series and that went well for them.

I can't believe people actually pay money to go there and take that kind of abuse. The best experience I've ever had at Wrigley was going to the Crosstown game in '02 with my friends and we were lucky enough to sit in the top row of the upper deck. The Sox lost that game (although PK took Farnsworth deep to make it close), but there was nobody behind us to give us grief (our backs were against the fence)...so it was the best possible situation.
