Default Dumb Things Heard

Just a couple of the dumb things heard/seen during Saturday's game...

"Why is everybody leaving? Shouldn't you be staying to celebrate?" (The groundscrew had already taken the field and was deep into their post game work.)

"If Wrigley had parking, we'd certainly be out of this lot by now." (Said five minutes after we got into the car.)

Holding up three fingers on one hand and two on the other, indicating the cubs have a three to two series advantage...completely ignoring the fact that the cubs have now lost three of their last four series.

"You know, the cubs and the Sox may have won the same number of World Series, but the cubs have been to more than the Sox." (And how many of those were in your lifetime, Skippy?)

All were said by by a cub friend of ours. The same nutball who was standing and clapping every time a cub pitcher got the first pitch strike on a Sox hitter. Oh, was she a bit disappointed in the 7th with TCQ!

A good comeback would have been "This is baseball, not The Biggest Loser"

"If Wrigley had parking, we'd certainly be out of this lot by now." (Said five minutes after we got into the car.)

That one's especially funny, and on a couple of levels.

One of the biggest beefs against the Urinal is the complete lack of parking. Well, that and the concrete chunks dropping at random. In fact, speaking of dumb things, I was making fun of the concrete dropping and told a Cub fan somebody was missing a business opportunity. They could make up little blue hard hats with marks like concrete hit them. As long as they had Cub logos you could sell thousands of them. His response, "I'd buy one!!"

Maybe that explains the 3 finger thing!

If I typed all the stupid stuff I heard Saturday, I would get carpel tunnel......Cub fans while highly annoying, seem to provide excellent comic relief by just being themselves!

During this weekend, or any crosstown weekend, why should anyone care about that? It's all about these six games.

Yesterday, me and my friends sat next to cubs fans who annoying when D. Lee made it 5-4. They pretty much didn't say a word after TCQ's home run. One of the greatest feelings in the world is seeing Cubs fans leave in anger when their team loses here.

I had no problems at the game. That could be because the outfield was restricted. My Cubs fans friend said they has a great experience at the park.

They get rings and a trophy if they beat us.

That was the first thing I caught. I definitely would have been all over him for that. Nothing hurts more than having your fanhood/fandom put in check

I think it's time you should start re-assessing your choice of friends.

It's a she? I guess that means it wasn't my friend I vented about this past week.
