I just saw this clown on Fox News, in attendance for a certain big event/speech in Chicago, UGH! How does this clown get everywhere. Not to mention the speaker does not represent the Cubs :angry:

Back in the Jerry Manuel years Ronnie Wickers was in full Cubbies regalia at SOXFEST and even made it to a microphone and asked Manuel a question.

You have to wonder where he gets the money, and the tickets, to attend all of these events.

There were decades long Sox fans that were dying for playoff tickets, and this mutt scores one. Unreal.

I wasn't at the session and didn't hear him, but IIRC it caused quite a stir here at WSI afterward. I think Manuel made some joke about Wickers.

While I did not witness Wickers at the Q&A I was there that day at SoxFest. I remember walking thru a hallway and seeing Wickers in full Cubbie regalia and thinking it was very surreal.

I was at that Q & A and Ronnie just did his cubs woo cubs woo routine for about a minute. The unfunny thing is that no one stopped him.

That's what I've always wondered. As far as getting in to see the Cub games, it's no mystery. Some stupid tourists, or drunken, backward hat & pookah bead wearing frat boys, in all likelyhood, see him, and think "WHOA, COOL ! THERE'S RONNIE WOO WOO ! HEY WE HAVE AN EXTRA TICKET ! LET'S GIVE IT TO HIM ! THEN HE CAN SIT BY US AND WOOO THE WHOLE GAME, WHILE WE BUY HIM HIS BEER AND FOOD ! AND HE CAN SIT ON MY GIRLFRIENDS LAP AND FEEL HER UP WHILE I TAKE THEIR PICTURE !"

But then, last year, I see him on T.V. in Arizona at games 1 and 2 of the NLDS, and I'm thinking, who in the hell is paying for this guy to travel to Arizona and get into playoff games ? I've also seen pictures of him in Arizona at spring training, and now, he's at this speech ? Is there some Ronnie Woo Woo fund that the Tribune subsidizes, and Cub fans contribute to, that he draws his funds from in order to eat, drink, and take these vacations/roadtrips ?

We were at a Cubs/Sox game at Comiskey a few years back, we were in the seats that are now occupied by the Scout Seats, he comes down during the game doing his whole routine, I got pissed and got the usher. They said to just let him be I was irate and said that I had paid a lot of money for these seats and to ask him for his stub. They refused, I asked to speak to her supervisor and dropped the name of the guy that got me those tickets, within a minute security came down and was escorting him out of our section.

A few years back I was driving up Clark one morning just south of Wrigley on a game day when Ronnie jaywalked right in front of me. I jammed on the brakes and came to a stop about a foot short of him.

Ronnie just stood there staring at me.

I laid on the horn but he didn't budge. Instead he started WOOing at me for a good 20 seconds while I leaned out the window and yelled at him. Finally a girl in a Prior jersey came and grabbed his arm to pull him out of the way.

Sorry folks. I should've taken him out when I had the chance.

Must be, considering most Cub fans don't have jobs according to Lee Elia. :rolleyes:

Ronnie showed up to Buck O'Neil's funeral (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2625618) in his full uniform. ESPN could have shown a picture of the Hall of Famers in attendance - Banks, Brett, Brock, and Billy Williams were referenced, but they linked a picture of the equivalent of the Paris Hilton of the North Side. That's just wrong.

I actually saw Woo Woo coming up the escalator at Soxfest this year as I was leaving on Sunday. He had his winter coat bundled up over his Cubs uniform. I was a little annoyed that the Sox security guys let him because he didn't have the Soxfest lanyard pass around his neck, but whatever.

I saw him there as well. He was in the parking lot and was getting verbally murdered by many people, myself included. How he has avoided serious physical harm is still beyond me.

I guess you have to remember that most people are not nearly as passionate as us on this board. There are tons of people out there who are scrubs fans who think he is funny/cute. And then there are tons of people out there who "like both teams" and think he is funny/cute. And then there are people who don't really know anything about baseball or sports in general who see him and think he is funny/cute.

If you don't really know much about this loser, I guess where I can see where people would think that he is cool. It's hard for me to be objective though.

They think he's funny and cute for about 5 minutes...after that most want him to go away. True die hard Cub fans I know hate the guy and do not want him anywhere near them.

I've heard that as well. That's why I said before they get to know him. At the same time, I have heard people say, "Awwww, look at that guy, he must really like the Cubs!". And when he was getting the verbal business from people at the 2005 ALCS, I heard some people saying things like, "Why is everyone mean to that Cubs guy?"

Clearly they were people who don't know anything about him. I think your giving him too much respect when you say that they think he is funny/cute for 5 minutes. I would say it's more like 2 minutes, or 1 and half minutes!:D:

A few years ago, I got the chance to play at Wrigley...and he was there. While playing, you are supposed to drown out your surroundings, but man I could not drown out this asshat. Luckily for me, he mainly did his WOOs when the team I was playing for was on the field. At the time, I really did not know who he his so during the game I was thinking, "Who the hell is this clown, and why is he here?" I now know why, and I wish I did not know who he was. Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

Homeless guy who wears a Cubs uniform all the time, yells "WOO" between every word he says (example: I WOO! AM WOO! VERY WOO! ANNOYING WOO!), and as a result is given many free tickets, drinks, meals, trips, dentures, etc. etc. by Cubs fans.

It's completely baffling to me how homeless guy + Cubs uniform = lovable guy, but there ya go. I guess I have to give him credit on some level - he's created his own little cottage industry.

it's appropriate that someone who hasn't worked for 100 years represents a team that hasnt won in 100. his representation of that team just shows how retarded their fan base is.

let him symbolize them all he wants, but he should not be allowed on the South Side. for one, we can't allow his stench to disrupt the sweet Comiskey Park aroma of hot dogs, kentucky bluegrass and beer. hopefully he'll get booted away from any sox-related function quicker than an unidentified gunman at a presidential rally.

Soooo... I was @ the Sox/Yanks series this last summer.. and the last game the cubs were BACK in town and this douche bag was STILL @ comiskey walking around before the game "wooing" at everyone.

My friend tyler clippard was playing for the yankees at the time and I was on the visitors side trying to talk to him and ronnie was about 3 rows up WOOING for like 20 minutes. Tyler was like "who IS that guy???"

It flabbergasted me that he was @ comiskey WHILE THE CUBS WERE IN TOWN... go to a cubs game... I swear there was a game going on at the SAME TIME as the sox game.. I couldnt understand for the LIFE of me how this dumbass didnt understand that no one wanted him there!!!!

Let's be honest - if this WAS a Sox fan, this would be in every goddamn paper about the White Sox exploiting a homeless man or making White Sox fans even more "loserlike" (comparing this guy with the Ligues). But, he's on the North Side, so he's adorable.

I saw him in street clothes at a Sox game once and of course no one recognized him. As soon as I saw him the first thing that came to my mind was this http://www.chappellecenter.com/showinfo/images/tyrone.jpg

He was dressed exactly like this except his headwear was a dark brown. I kid you not. Just to make sure I even said hi to him and sure enough it was him. I still crack up at the thought of him looking like crackhead Dave Chapelle.
