I like that site, and I don't mind them calling out this fan. They really didn't say that the "entire fanbase" is like this.
Yeah.....surprised they didn't take the opportunity to really torch the entire fanbase. I do think the fan involved should be banned from Wrigley Stadium (yes, that was done on purpose, before others here claim I don't know jack about the Cobs).
Here's probably the major reason why I dislike the Cubs so much - it's not so much the organization, it's the fans that pull stupid **** like this. Granted, someone's going to now come on and say, "all fan bases have stupid fans like this..." - really? How often do you hear about fans interfering with games like Cubs fans do? Well, I guess there's the White Sox where you had those two losers who jumped out onto the field and physically assaulted whoever it was on the Kansas City Royals several years ago, but outside of Chicago, where else is this a problem? I mean, go back about a decade or so and you had that one time where Sammy Sosa absolutely wigged out on something he considered a bad call and it apparently gave every single fan a license to begin chucking things on the field - beer and pop cups, trash, souvenirs, it was ridiculous. Not to mention if you're a fan of the opponent you run the risk of taking a beer shower before the day is over (well, at least that one fan was nice enough to ask my friend first before he did it).
Like I said, it seems like Chicago, and particularly the Cubs, is the only place you tend to hear about sheer fan stupidity in the Major Leagues...
If I remember correctly the two turds at the White Sox game only attempted to assault the Royals first base coach. Their attempt was derailed by an angry mob of players from both teams that ended taking them to the ground and then repeatedly kicking and stomping them with their cleats.
I would say they were the ones who were assaulted and they deserved every last bit of it.
Unfortunately, the Philly players couldn't get their hands on the moron that tossed the beer. Had they done that then it would have been really fun.
To my fellow Cyclones... Be excellent to each other... and PARTY ON DUDES!
