...area residents say that experience is quickly becoming more Bourbon Street than Main Street, with more people staggering drunk down the sidewalks, throwing empty beer cans where they please and urinating in the yards...

...In the hours surrounding the 13 home games in May, officers wrote 240 citations for such things as carrying open containers of alcohol and public urination and made 25 arrests for more serious offenses, including a deadly shooting just outside a lounge across the street.
Amazing how the perspective of a story changes when it isn't produced by the Cubune or Cub-Times. The Shrine is a myth!

Everyone around Wrigley is happy and just loves baseball and the cubs. The few people that do get drunk are harmless like the character of Otis on "The Andy Griffith Show". They walk over to the Wrigleyville jail and lock themselves up for awhile until they are sober and then they go back home to love their families and the cubbies. Nobody ever fights or gets hurt like they do near that dirty, crack infested ghetto on the wrong side of town.

My heart goes out to those poor people who have chosen to live near the big urinal. I feel so sorry for them and their unfortunate plight.

"It used to be quiet during the games. Now people are all over..."


Hey Meg --
When did you wake up and notice the ballgames at the Shrine.
The place has been a circus since 1989. Half the people in the park do not know the players on the field and the residents do not know that some sort of major league baseball is attempted to be played their 81 times a year. I only thought Iowa bumpkins lived under the 1950's rock.

Well, with the Cubune their to contiune to polish the team and area, they can all keep living in their dreamland.

Drink Up!!!

Hey, they couldn't have foreseen this a few years ago. It has always been iffy, but never this bad. There's a lot more people around there this year than the previous years.
