Just got back from the game about an hour ago, pretty fun really hot though. Good to see the Sox come out on top although Ronnie Woo made the first couple of innings miserable, he would not shut up.

Ugh. God that guy pisses me off. How the hell did he afford to go to Arizona? Did some ****ing Cubs fan buy his ticket just like they bought his teeth? I wish I could get ****ing handouts like this guy does for doing nothing with my life. **** 'em.

I saw him sitting outside Jimbos after ALDS Game 1 all decked out in Cubs gear. What a jag.

He was walking the UD concourse during Game 1 of the ALCS talking smack. I really wonder who gave him tickets to THAT.

I don't run security at USCF, but it seems like a ticking timebomb to let this guy in during a playoff game with a bullseye painted on his chest and a target on his head.

You are absolutely right.

I also remember him being at game 1 of the 2005 ALCS. I saw him walking into the stadium. He was standing just past the traintracks over by the news crews.

People were taunting him, VERY harshly!

And then I saw him again inside the park during the game. Some girl went up behind him and booted him in the ass! And not like a friendly tap either, like a serious case of Booted Ass. It was lovely!:bandance:

I saw him last year in the 300-level concourse during Game 6 of the NBA Quarterfinals against the Heat last year during halftime. He was doing his whole "Cubs! WOO!" thing, so I took off my World Series Champions hat I wore to the game and waved it in his face. That guy oughtta have a restraining order on anything south of Madison.

The Cubs let him in, I think. When I worked for the Cubs I was told that Ronnie Woo-Woo was the only guy who didn't need a ticket to get into the park. I've also seen his face in a couple of ads by Wrigley. I'd take Andy the Clown any day over that drunk...and I'm afraid of clowns.

Did you hear that Ronnie Woo Woo actually has an ALBUM that was sold bootleg to Cubs fans? I remember a posting on Woo Woo's *official site* that it has a song on it called "Me and You and Ronnie Woo Woo" There's also a DVD you can sign up on that site called "WooLife" :?:

I'm watching the replay now, so I'll probably edit in comments as I go along.

Did I hear DJ right. After the way the Chicago media acted this offseason, we have a higher payroll then them? You'd be shocked living in this town.

Ha, that Kenny/Ozzie hit and run thing was hilarious. Poor Rob.

Geez, compare this to that Cubs broadcast a few weeks ago. Now this is a broadcast, and I'm not even Hawk's biggest fan (who sounds improved to me actually). Cub fans who watched this probably wondered who slipped the caffeine in their drinks, not falling asleep early in the game like usual.

I was watching the game today and I thought I heard that crack head. But then I thought to myself, no, he couldn't have made it to Arizona. Really, who pays for this bum to go to spring training?

And I was at the Boston ALDS game 1. I didn't think anything could have ruined my day. I get to Jimbo's, a place I had been paying 4 bucks for a can of old style on half priced mondays when it was empty. The line is ridiculous and real sox fans cant get in. But Woo Woo is holding an audience on the patio outside. People were taking pictures on his lap like he was the pope. My friend started screaming "he's only a crackhead not a celebrity!" and was nearly arrested. That was the day I swore I would never return to Jimbo's. Conveniently enough, they gone. I like to think of it as Woo Woo karma.

Nasty! I would probably drown myself in disinfectant if I made accidental contact walking past him. Probably would feel more comfortable rubbing myself up against some bum outside of my office building.

Not sure where he came from, but seems like he's been around forever. The last time I was at Wrigley had to have been 20 years ago, and there he was at the back of the bleachers, Woo-ing his fool head off. He's got to be about 65 years old or so, and IMO, seeing Lincoln Park Trixies swooning all over him has to be one of the most nauseating sights possible.

And although no one has mentioned it as yet in this thread, I seem to recall that he also managed to show up at Cooperstown for Sandberg's coronation. Cubs fans seem to revere this guy, which is reason enough right there to doubt their sanity.

I wonder if that burned-out babe with the glassy-eyed stare and the "Sox Suck" license plate around her neck that was there last year showed up again yesterday. Maybe she and old Ronnie can get together.

Anybody see her?

I'm going to the game today, so I'll let you know if I see him there, but I would think (hope!) he'll be back in Mesa today.

I swear, I run into Ronnie around town more times than I bump into actual people I know.

2005 ALCS Game 1 - Ran into him walking through Lot F toward the stadium. I've never heard people unload on someone like that before. Even some little kid, couldn't have been more than eight years old, told him he sucked.

May 19th 2006 Sox/Cubs game - Coming down on the Red Line from Roosevelt, on the train. Some stupid reporter and a guy with a video camera were interviewing him on the train. Had two completely drunk 19 year old female Cubs fans standing behind me gawking all over him like he is the second coming of Christ. A "Hey Ronnie, you suck, go Sox!" yell from me mid-interview got a nice response from the train car, but the reporter seemed pretty upset.

Then a couple random times just visiting friends on the north side. The guy sure does get around.

I bet he's loaded. Probably made a fortune selling vacuums or used cars, then got scalded by hot coffee or run over by a Volvo and an ambulance chaser helped him get a few million, which he had someone else invest in Berkshire Hathaway, Exxon and Microsoft. Or maybe he invented something that made him a bunch of money, like the microprocessor or the electron microscope or the H-bomb or a new cure for the clap. In short, he's been doing his clown act for years just to get attention, because he's already got all the money he'll ever need.

Last Wednesday, my Sociology teacher was passing around those $1 newspapers that are published by the homeless, and are also sold outside of the Cell. Well in one of those newspapers, they had a cover story on Woo Woo about his life and his movie that was coming out. Curious why he's such a celebrity to flub fans, I decided to take a quick glance. It said that as a homeless child on the Southside, his mother often abused him. He lived with his grandmother growing up, and she would take him to Cubs games. Thats about as far I got reading that article before my head started to hurt...

Someone posted, a few months ago, a pic of Woo Woo at Buck O'neil funeral. Given the context of the picture, it was probably one of the funniest pictures I have seen in a while. I mean how in the hell does Woo even know Buck O'neil, or how he was even invited to the funeral?

I believe Ronnie is one of the original Bleacher Bums from 1969.

So, just imagine him and Mike Murphy together, and you can imagine how annoying it was to be a Cubs fan in 1969.

The man seems to be mentally impaired and yet the idiots at Wrigley are treating him like a mascot. My stomach turns every time I see him at a game because of the way the crowds react to his antics. He should be ignored, especially at the Cell.

I seriously doubt that he's loaded. I used to work near Irving Park & Ashland (also known as hell for a Sox fan), and I saw Woo-woo at least once every few weeks washing windows for the area businesses. Oh, and i've never seen him without his usual clothes - wearing the full Cubs uniform incuding spikes and jacket (when colder.)

If the Cubs want this clown around, that's their business, but Sox security should get wise that he doesn't belong at the Cell and eventually someone could get hurt over such a silly idiot.

I would have clicked on it, but I just ate.

Edit: Oops, bad move. I clicked on and read some Cubs fans comments. What is wrong with me? There goes dinner! :puking:

I yelled out some profanities as some students started to take pictures with him, only to be met with several angry glares. Ugh

I thought you all were kidding that he got a movie made about him. When I saw the phrase "offical website of Ronnie 'Woo Woo' Whickers," I know we are now one step closer to Armeggedon.

You know, this is why they will never win. Spend all the money you want, Tribune. Your fans are moronic.

Back to the actual good baseball team that played yesterday, that was hilarious with Mack, KW/Ozzie. Then, later in the game when Mack fouled a ball off his own foot, DJ deadpans the "Hasn't been a good day for Rob."

Hawk, "No, it hasn't."

I've been a Sox fan since I was born...surprisingly, there were a couple of other Sox fans who worked there, we were a distinct minority there and we got some crap from other ushers there (especially the elderly) and the fans were a pain in the ass (even the ones that didn't know we were Sox fans) but it was an okay job. I also worked as an usher for the Sox that year too. It was a fun year.

People smoke crank. People root for the Cubs. Sometimes, people do both, and sponge off yuppies to do so.

Whenever you see woo-woo, or any other lippy Cubs fan, just tell them "Podsednik, Game 2".

The most difficult part of being homeless was living under Wacker Drive in the winter. It was cold down there and you would wrap up with newspaper and cardboard so you wouldn't freeze. Sometime I would get frostbite on my hands, but I just prayed that that I would come out and go to Clark street. You never know what's going to happen in life, just like baseball. So it's important to know that you can take cardboard and newspaper and put it around your head and body to protect youself.

Obviously, I feel really sorry for someone who has to spend a Chicago winter on the streets, huddled under Wacker Drive for warmth.

But I can't help but find it a little funny that what's "important" is to "take cardboard and newspaper and put it around your head and body...." I don't know how he became homeless, but maybe it's also important to avoid smoking crack and keeping a job.

How in hell can a guy like that get semi-famous for the most idiotic catchprase ever uttered out of anyones mouth? I only cements the fact that Cub fans are idiots if they think this airhole is funny. I'd like to see The Get-Up Guy whup his ass in a Celebrity Deathmatch. Woo-woo this!

I have to admit, in Tucson, I got very unlucky and sat in front of a fellow SOX fan (and possible member of ZZ-Top) who was annoying as heck too... Wednesday he sat behind me on 3rd base side, so we thought we were home free Saturday on the 1st base side, nope!
lol
Some of you might know this guy by his calls...

"Bingo Time!" (asking for a HR)
"Capaint Clutch (Paulie) we want a Bingo for the Ladies!"
"Rally Time" (when we are up by 4 runs?)
"Crack it" (I think some people thought he was calling someone a crackhead)

Anyway, it was funny for 2 innings, but it just kept repeating... ugh!!!

In all seriousness Ronnie is mentally challenged and has spent most of his life on welfare and washing windows in the Wrigleyville area. He was married and had a kid but that marriage ended due to his drinking problem. Each paper has written plenty about him and his background.

Back in high school Wheaton North had a similar guy named Darryl that would show up to all their sporting events. Just like Ronnie, he would show up to many Wheaton Warrenville South games when we would be in the playoffs or had a big game. This guy was actually mentally retarded and a Wheaton North grad from the 80's. Like Ronnie he worked odd jobs and was best known for dancing on street corners around town waving a Domino's Pizza banner.

That's the point though. There are a lot of people out there who have mental handicaps. They don't get their own offical webpage nor do they get a movie made about their life; no matter how wacky they act in public.

That's what bugs the livin' heck out of me when Flubs fans go, "Oh, be he was abused."

Guess what? So have a lot of other people, and they don't get free tickets to major sporting events nor do they get free airfare and lodging to go to spring training. Nor did they get to attend Buck O'neil's funeral. They also weren't allowed in at Wrigley during the 2003 playoffs.

Ronnie Woo Woo, and the way Cubs fans honor this guy, is exactly what is wrong with the North side fanbase. My question is, what exactly will happen to the Ronnie Woo Woo's, and the Mike Murphys, and the other "loveable loser" crowd do once the Cubs win the series?

Personally, I'd love to see the fanbase go, "Ok, you guys were fans when we were losers. We're not losers anymore, so please go away."

Hell, some of 'em already feel that way. My two co-workers who are Cubs fans; upon hearing that Ronnie had a movie and a website:

"Damn. How the hell did anyone come up with money to make one, and they sure aren't getting Denzel to get to play him."

and the other

"What, did the movie makers lose a bet or something?"

To me, there's something silly at best and offensive at worst about an adult being considered an "unofficial mascot," which is what his website calls him. That helped me realize why the whole Woo Woo phenomenon bugs me, apart from the fact that he's just plain obnoxious.

The Cubs let him in, I think. When I worked for the Cubs I was told that Ronnie Woo-Woo was the only guy who didn't need a ticket to get into the park. I've also seen his face in a couple of ads by Wrigley. I'd take Andy the Clown any day over that drunk...and I'm afraid of clowns.

Every Cub fan I know hate him. I don't think the Cubs fans support him. The one's that support him are the people that like to say they are Cubs fans...the one's that take the good tickets, leave early to the bars and just go to party and get wasted. These are the idiots and that want their picture taken with him and hang around him just to get attention from others.

And then I saw him again inside the park during the game. Some girl went up behind him and booted him in the ass! And not like a friendly tap either, like a serious case of Booted Ass. It was lovely!:bandance:

Yes they do. I'd expect the same thing in reverse as well. If some Sox fan showed up during the 2003 Cubs playoffs decked out in full gear and started yelling stupid **** about the Cubs, I'd expect that person to get booted in the ass as well.

People need to learn these things. When large numbers of people congregate under one uniting principal, it isn't smart of an outsider to show up and openly, loudly mock them. Ronnie Woo Woo showing up at Sox playoff games is just like some radical Islamic fundamentalist showing up at an NRA meeting and screaming Jihad. Somebody is going to get mad.

I don't know if I'd go THAT far....but I think it is pretty classless to show up at the Sox (and the city's) biggest baseball triumph since the Eisenhower administration decked out in Cubs gear and cheering against the Sox. Just as it would be classless to go to Wrigley Field the night the Cubs are supposed to clinch the pennant decked out in Sox gear and cheering agains the Cubs. I'm not saying that if you're a Sox fan you have to root for the Cubs or vice-versa but everyone deserves their moment of glory. You can razz your friends all you want but I wouldn't go near Wrigley if the Cubs were about to win the pennant and start bad mouthing the team. I'd tip my cap and mutter under my breath.

Having said that, Ronnie should have known that that was a stupid idea and that he was liable to get hurt. I never advocate violence, especially at a Sox game, but common sense should dictate "I might not be safe doing this..." of course, common sense is a foreign idea to most Cub fans. Especially Ronnie Woo Woo.

A girl kicked him in the ass. So what? He deserved it entirely. It's not like he was jumped by 5 guys and beaten to near death. A girl kicked him in the butt. Better file a lawsuit!

Jesus man, get a grip and stop making mountains out of molehills here, it's incredibly unnecessary.

Um, yeah, at the 2nd game of the year last here, I was sitting in the upper tank with my buddy. Place was pretty empty. In walks a dude with a Prior jersey. The 20 people that were in our section started to boo and throw crap at him. One guy, in a leather vest and harley shirt, with a Sox hat on, walked up to the guy, took his beer, and poured it on his head. the dude in the Prior jersey freaked out and left, never to be seen again the entire day.

I was at the game on Friday as well, got back into town last night. I couldn't believe Ronnie was there, and at first thought I was imagining the Woos, but then looked around and saw him standing in the bleachers doing his thing. Whatever. It was annoying and stupid, and was made worse by the fact that it was almost 100 degrees that day and the game was long. I had a bigger beef with the moronic Cubs fans behind me who were swearing and saying stupid **** throughout the entire game. Come on people, it's Spring Training! Enjoy the game and the weather and just have a good time. Some jackass kept yelling "Murderer!" every time Uribe came to bat and then the guy across the aisle from me told me Dye wouldn't play more than 100 games because he can't use HGH anymore. Are you serious? I looked at the guy and said Prior is going to be screwed then too, and he shut up for the rest of the game.

I go to ST games to have fun and just enjoy the game without getting too worked up over it. But the Cubs fans around me were nuts. Next year when I go I am going to make sure I go to a different game in Tucson, I don't want to deal with that crap again, especially when I'm on vacation trying to have a good time.

My dad, brother and I went to see the Royals and Diamondbacks on Saturday. The Royals have improved but they are still the Royals. Lilly started and pitched 3 good innings and then fell apart in the 4th. Their bullpen wasn't much better. And the Diamondbacks were just as bad. Easily one of the worst ST games I have ever seen. Those 2 teams are probably going to be pretty bad this year.

Ya missed the date by one day. It was the 26th when we won it all. I agree that the ring that the Sox have has ended my hatred of the Cubs. I live out in Wrigley West, so there are mostly Cub fans around here. Instead of bashing them, I now try(emphasis on this word) to talk intelligent baseball with them instead of the whole "Cubs/Sox suck" exchange. I do dread the day, because it's bound to happen eventually, when the Cubs win the Series. I just hope that the Sox have won 2-3 more by then because then it'll cancel out the negative effect. In the situation that the Sox don't win another Series by then, I fear that the casual fan will no longer show up at the Cell, and that the Sox turn into a team like KC or Pittsburgh, who consistently cannot compete because nobody shows up to the games except the die-hards(like us), while the Cubs turn into the NL version of the Red Sox/Yankees.(in terms of spending $$$ on all of the best players)

IMO the sports rivalry has nothing to do with it. It is one thing if a Cub fan shows up to a Sox game and cheers the Cubs when they are actually playing in the game. In that case it is okay. It is a whole other scenario though when some dumbass Cub fan shows up wearing Cub gear when his team is not playing in the game. Any fan who does that is not trying to be some innocent fan. He is deliberately trying to agitate other people who are there to enjoy the game, and anyone who does that deserves an *** kicking for being so stupid.

It isn't just Sox fans either. I've been to many Brewers games and seen the same exact thing. It doesn't matter if Milwaukee is playing the Reds, these morons always show up with their Wood and Prior jerseys and annoy the fans. They always get heckled and run down, and you'd have to think that at some point one of these turds would actually stop for a moment and think "gee, these people really don't like my attempts at being an ***hole. Some of them clearly want to kick my ass, so maybe I shouldn't ever do this again." But of course, there they are at Miller Park again on the next homestand vs. the Braves.

Showing up in your team's hat and enjoying the game is a world different than wearing a hat and a Prior jersey while making an ass out of yourself and your fanbase.

Not that these guys are the experts, but one of the writers for Foxsports.com just picked the D-Backs to win the NL West (granted, weak division) and ESPN.com currently has two articles talking about the great young talent they have. The d-backs will be a decent to good club this year.

The NL West is probably going to be the second most competetive division in baseball behind the AL Central. The Pads, AZ, and Dodgers all have solid pitching staffs capable of winning in the playoffs. AZ, Colorado, and LA have young studly position players everywhere. The Giants are the worst team in the division by far and even they picked up Dave Roberts and Barry Zito over the offseason. In all likelyhood, at least 2 and probably 3 of the best all around teams in the NL play in that division. It used to be a joke, but the joke is now the NL Central which has the worst starting pitching and the worst defense in baseball.
