So I'm at the game last night and couldn't help notice some arrogant scrubs fans at the game also (in my section). What I wanna know is, why do scrubs fans attend OUR games, with full blown scrubbie gear on mind you, and their team isn't even playing? How many Sox fans go to the urinal just to go, and sport the silver and black? I bet not many IF any at all.

I know it doesn't make any sense. Just figure the source and don't let it bother you. Don't even pay attention to them. They're just there to piss off the Sox fans and showing them it bothers you would just give them what they want. I will say, I wouldn't go to the Urinal dressed in full Sox gear, if the Cubs were playing the Sox or not. I went to the Urinal for a Cubs Sox game and I got harassed so that was my last visit.

I thought that it was funny how, on Opening Day, there was some guy sitting a few rows away from me in the bleachers had a Crede jersey on and a cubs hat on. I guess that after they posted the final score of the cubs game on monday, he must have cheered or said "yes" or something because right when that score went final people started booing him and some people threw peanut shells at him. I really do not know why they come to the Cell in full blown cubs gear. I guess that some people just might want to be "that guy" who gets made fun of for an entire game or who likes to talk about all the love that the cubs get, I just really have no idea why they go to the Cell though. I never go to the urinal for cubs games and never will.

It annoys me too. Just asshats looking for attention. I've been told that some of our fans do it at Wrigley too, but the few times I've been there when the Sox weren't playing, I've never noticed it.

I've worn White Sox gear to Wrigley before, even when the Sox aren't playing there. Sometimes I've gotten an earful from some douchebag and sometimes I've had decent conversation with Cub fans too.

Personally I'm tired of the "It's our park - Cub fans stay out" crud. If a Cub fan wants to go see a game at the Cell, so long as he's not a foul-mouthed or belligerent arse, it doesn't bother me.

They were out in droves in 2004 after their playoff run in 2003. I remember leaving the park and they had a Go Cubs Go chant going on one of the ramps. My friend is the same way, every time I see him he is wearing Central Division Champions shirt from last year.

I go to a fair amount of Cubs games, living only three blocks from the park. Occasionally, especially if the Sox are doing well, I wear some Sox stuff. I have done the same when I have gone to see games in St. Louis, NY, and Minnesota. I don't see what the problem is.

They're still selling them all over outside the stadium. My first thought? Yet another celebration of futility. Simply making the playoffs is celebrated way too much in this town.

I like to wear my '84 Padres cap when I go to Wrigley. It's such a subtle dig at them that I rarely get any grief from the Cub fans.

As others have said -- the more butts in the seats, the more $$$ in the Sox coffer. The way I see it they're helping pay Uribe's salary. Bless their hearts.

Actually, I'm more disgusted with the hordes of idiots wearing Red Sox gear to the Cell, when we're not playing the Carmines.

At least with the Cub fans, they just don't know any better...

A buddy of mine is a Cub fan and I will take him to games with me on occasion. He will wear some kind of beer hat or something like that. HE calls those people idiots (the ones in the Cub shirts and hats). Hats are no real big deal to me, but when they show up in their full Cubbie regalia and cheer the opposition, that is kind of a pisser.

There were a lot of obnoxious drunkards that snuck down by our seats yesterday. Probably had more to do with the park being as empty as it was than anything. The dip**** in the first row kept trying to spit on the chevy pride crew and would then look at his buddies as if to say look how funny i am.

As far as wearing Sox gear to Wrigley goes well I wear my Sox hat when I go (usually I go to the Sox Vs. Cubs games). Honestly i have gotten crap more from women than men which isn't bad becuse it usually ended up with buying each other beers and whatnot. I said the same thing to a buddy of mine who teased me for wearing a Sox hat and sure enough two pretty lasses came up and starting ribbing me. Next thing I knew he took my hat and disappeared. When I found him later he had his arm around another pretty gal. He looked over at me tossed my hat over and said thanks! :cool: All you need is an in....

While I wasn't really wearing full blown sox gear (jersey, jacket, shoes, socks, boxers, etc) lol, I had my white white sox hat on, and a black shirt that says "friends dont let friends go to wrigley." Some people noticed, some didn't. The ones who did, I told them the Cubs suck, always have, always will, and went on my way.

You should have seen the jamokes that came down in the 8th. They were just straight-up swearing at Young. "**** you, you ****ing piece of ****! Your mom is a ****ing whore who sucked my ****ing dick last night!"

Good grief...

Some other youths came down in the 7th, just to check out the front row. cwsfannick asked them as a joke if he could see their tickets. One kid turned and said "Do you mind?" and then turned back to the field.

I think I'm like most people, I don't mind someone wearing a cap of another team but when it's full blown gear and they are just being annoying to other people...it's just plain stupid. If I go to a Cubs game(very rarely since I live in FL now) or another game I will wear a Sox hat, mainly because 80% of my caps are Sox hats of one kind or another.
I think it has to do with behavior more than anything. If you go to Wrigley with a Sox hat on, watch the game and not start ****, OK. Same goes for Cubs fans at Comisky. Playful banter is fine and fun, but stuff usually escalates as the :gulp: are consumed.

Oh, don't go get me wrong. They're fine people, they're good Sox fans. But they're content to sit back, maybe watch a little Hawk and DJ on WCIU, maybe kick back a cool, Coors 16-ouncer. They're good, fine people, skot. But they don't know...what the Cub fans are doing to the soil?!

You know that Jonny Wurster kid, the kid that delivers papers in the neighborhood? He's a foreign kid. Some of the neighbors say he smokes crack, but I don't believe it. Anyway, for his tenth birthday, all he wanted was an Ozzie bobblehead. Kept bugging his old man. "Dad, get me an Ozzie bobblehead. I'll never ask for anything else as long as I live." So the guy breaks down and buys him an Ozzie bobblehead. Anyway, 10:30, the other night, I go out in my yard, and there's the Wurster kid, looking up in the tree. I say, "What are you looking for?" He says "I'm looking for my Ozzie bobblehead. "I say, "Jumping Jesus on a Pogo Stick. Everybody knows an Ozzie bobblehead sits. On a shelf. In a display case. Why the hell do you think they call it a bobblehead, anyway?" Now skot, do you think a kid like that is going to know what the Cub fans are doing to the soil?

I first became aware of this about ten years ago, the summer my oldest boy, Bill Jr. died. You know that carnival comes into town every year? Well this year they came through with a ride called The Mixer. The man said, "Keep your head, and arms, inside the Mixer at all times." But Bill Jr, he was a DAAAREDEVIL, just like his old man. He was leaning out saying "Hey everybody, Look at me! Look at me!" Pow! He was decapitated! They found his head over by the snow cone concession. A few days after that, I open up the mail. And there's a pamphlet in there. From Pueblo, Colorado, and it's addressed to Bill, Jr. And it's entitled, "Do you know what Cub fans are doing to our soil?"

Now, skot, if you look at the soil around any large US city, there's a big, mainstream Cub fan population. Des Moines, Iowa, for an example. Look at the soil around Des Moines, skot. You can't build on it; you can't grow anything in it. The government says it's due to poor farming. But I know what's really going on, skot! I know it's the Cub fans! They're in it with the aliens! They're building landing strips for Cub Martians, I swear to God!

You know what, skot, I like you. You're not like the other people, here in this trailer park.

There were like 12,000 fans there yesterday....I don't think we should deny anyone that helps fund our 5th highest in the league payroll on a school night in mid April.

I've gone to a fair amount of Cubs games, although I've only paid for a ticket when its Cubs Sox...otherwise I've gotten freebies from work or from friends. Sometimes its fun just to watch baseball. I won't go in obnoxious full sox jersey, although I will wear a cap from time to time. It kind of botherered me that Johnny Woo Woo was at the World Series in 2005 in full Cubs gear, when many Sox fans were shut out...of course a lot bothers me involving Johnny Woo Woo.

:angry:

I live near Wrigley and go to games occasionally (maybe 5-10 per year). Almost every single time I've gone, I've seen at least one person wearing Sox gear, whether it be a hat, a jersey, a t-shirt, a jacket. Don't pretend like it doesn't happen on the other side of town. Some people just like baseball (like me), and don't mind having to deal with the inconveniences of Wrigley Field sometimes. The only difference is, Sox fans aren't usually annoying about their presence at Wrigley and not vice versa.

However, I will say I think its stupid to wear anything other than a third party hat at a game. A Cubs cap at a Sox game? Fine. A Cubs jersey at a Sox game? Ridiculous.

This reminds me of the thread about what is appropriate to wear generally as a grown man. Who cares? Come decked out in Ronnie Woo Woo level Sox garb if that is what you normally wear to a game.

I almost always wear jerseys to games, no matter who is playing. Obviously, I'm going to wear a Sox jersey.

Since 1984, I've been to The Urinal only two times, both for Sox games. Sat in the CF Bleachers for one game (2004), behind 1st for the other (2006). Decked out in Sox hat, tee and jersey. At the 2004 game, I wore my Sosa Cork Co. shirt since he was still on the team.

The only comment directed towards me in either game was a guy asking me why Frank Thomas was not playing in the game (2004). I told him Frank is a DH. The guy seemed disappointed at not seeing Hurt. I was, too, because we lost that game. Coulda used him (he came in as PH and struck out).

I never caught any grief for wearing Sox stuff there. But then, I won't go there unless the Good Guys are playing.

I've seen it both ways many times, annoying Cubs fans at the Cell causing problems, good Cubs fans watching the game. At Wrigley, I've seen bad Sox fans looking for a fight and good Sox fans enjoying the game. This seems to be more of an individual problems with jerks, regardless of team affiliation looking for a fight.

Last year I was at a Cubs game and some wasted dude started yelling "Go Colts" thinking that this would tick people off. Nobody acknowledged him but finally someone yelled, "Yea we know Grossman sucks, what else ya got?" And the guy shut up, but then he started with "Sosa sucks" and everyone started agreeing with him. The guy was so confused he just got up and left and didn't come back.

Now, skot, if you look at the soil around any large US city, there's a big, mainstream Cub fan population. Des Moines, Iowa, for an example. Look at the soil around Des Moines, skot. You can't build on it; you can't grow anything in it. The government says it's due to poor farming. But I know what's really going on, skot! I know it's the Cub fans! They're in it with the aliens! They're building landing strips for Cub Martians, I swear to God!

You know what, skot, I like you. You're not like the other people, here in this trailer park.
:rolling: Very nicely done!!!

My one and only trip to Wrihley, I wore a Sox cap. I didn't get much flak for it, then again, I was in front of a group of German tourists.

John Favreau wore Sox gear to a cub game in The Break Up.

However, I will say I think its stupid to wear anything other than a third party hat at a game. A Cubs cap at a Sox game? Fine. A Cubs jersey at a Sox game? Ridiculous.



Agreed. If you wanna sport your team, be it the cubs or whoever, a hat is fine, just don't get all decked out when your team isn't even in the stadium.

so long as he's not a foul-mouthed or belligerent arse, it doesn't bother me.


Yeah but honestly, what are the chances of that occurring?!?

Seriously, 9 times out of 10, the douchebags that I see at Comiskey are Loud, Annoying and coplete pieces of ****. They have to be some of the most trashy people in the world, without a doubt.

However, as others in this thread have stated, their stupidity is really something to behold. How do they not realize that they are pumping money into our team?!?!?

And on top of everything else. they don't have ANYTHING over us anymore. Specifically since a certain moment in time known as 10/26/2005.

They just look even more pathetic than EVER before!! Which, honestly, I didn't think was possible. I don't know if they can sink any lower. This could very easily be ROCK BOTTOM for them.

Why would anyone care about the money from a ticket going to an "enemy team"?

I went to a Braves-Cubs game here in ATL and wore my Sox hat. While I didn't hear anything from Cubs fans they sure did hear from me. The Braves won 6-0. :D:

My point is, they buy a ticket, and go to the game. You call it stupidity, because money is going to the team. It's anything but. If their goal was to annoy everyone that night, money well spent. The actual money made by the Sox from these "fans" is really insignificant when you look at it, especially at the cost of annoyed fans, who might come back less often due to these idiots.

Besides, this seems like the only city where a fans thinks it's stupid to visit a crosstown "rival" because it pumps money into this "rival". So childish.

I only eat at restaurants that serve RC Cola. I refuse to pump money into the pockets of Pepsi, Coca-Cola, and Sam's Choice cola.

But I'm old fashioned...

I would never wear Sox gear to Wrigley, but that only because I would never go to a game at Wrigley

I saw 3 last night, and one was an attention whore, walking around and pointing at his jersey. I do not think he made it the entire night, someone HAD to have kicked his butt. It was like he wanted it to happen.

I was offered a free ticket to a Cubs game once and sported a White Sox t-shirt just to be sure nobody mistook me for a Cubs fan :smile: I didn't talk any **** and wasn't hassled much by the Cub fans. Didn't root against the Cubs and didn't root for their opponent. Just sat there, drank a few beers and enjoyed an afternoon of baseball.

That pretty much describes me everytime I go to Wrigley. Many of good friends are Cubs fans, so I find myself with a fee ticket at least twice a year it seems.

Well, of all the times I've been to Wrigley (more than enough since the late 80s), I think the Cubs have like three wins. So, I've seen that "L" quite a few times. :D:

A few of those losses came from the Sox - the only time you will see me cheering at Wrigley.

Wear a 1974 Sox Santo jersey.

Actually, I'm more disgusted with the hordes of idiots wearing Red Sox gear to the Cell, when we're not playing the Carmines.

I want to yell at them, "Hey, you got the wrong color Sox on!"

At least with the Cub fans, they just don't know any better...

In many cases that person wearing Red Sox gear at The Cell (at a non-Red Sox game) is a Cubbie fan in disguise, and not a true "Bawstan" Red Sox fan.

I few years ago, I was working for a local radio station here covering Cubs and White Sox games. One day, I was covering a Cub game, and I actually wore a Sox cap in the Cubs' locker room. And one of the people I got to shake hands with at the time was Sammy Sosa.

Chip Caray was the Cubs' announcer at the time, and when I told the other reporters in the room I was a Sox fan, he came back with "Oh, we'll convert you sooner or later." It was a funny moment, but needless to say...hell will definitely freeze over before I become a Cubs fan.

And the temperature ain't exactly dropping down there, either.
