    Thanks Bs, now it makes sense why you were being so sensitive. The truth hurts but your good friend p-jersey will be here to deliver it.

    I went to a game earlier this summer against the Pirates and I was stunned by how into the game the fans were. It was deafening even for basic strikes from Zambrano in unimportant spots. I've been to a bunch of parks and nowhere I've been comes close to the enthusiasm of a Wrigley crowd. They actually lost the game b/c of a late comeback and still the fans were into it to the very last pitch. No fairweather fans booing after a late inning collapse either.

    Overall Cubs games are great to go to and the team has a strong fan base. But it is somewhat expected since the Cubs are doing well, wrigleyville is not quite the same when the Cubs are not a winning team. The seats are still packed but the reasons for being there are not necessarily to watch their team play. I have been to quite a few games where half the bleacher seats are filled with people who are drunk and not really paying attention to what is going on.

    Dingo why did you not tell me you were in town. I could have taken you to my bar on clark st. and we could have resumed our debate on Jason Macdonald and Steve Mazzagatti.

Anyone who says otherwise can suck it.


    I concur!


    I'm hoping that the rain stays away since I'm getting ready to head out to tonight's game. GO CUBS!!

    How about giving the author if this thread some credit I believe he predicted a good season and kick ass offense for the Cubs this year. They are now 32 games over .500 and look to be the team to beat in the playoffs with the 1-2 starting pitching of Zambrano and Harden complimented nicely by Dempster and Lilly followed by a great year out of the bullpen for Woods.

    Tough game for the Phils tonight. Unfortunately the first base ump was born and raised in Chicago. Oddly enough 99.9 percent of the fans in attendance weren't.

    Sorry Cub fans you might win the Penant but you won't win the World Series. Your Cubs would have to win a road game.

    Maybe I should post this in the Politics/Religious board? From the LA Times:

    Stuart Scott of ESPN asked Chicago guy Barack Obama if he would root for the White Sox or the Cubs if both made it to the World Series.

    "That's easy. The White Sox," he said. "You go to Wrigley Field, you have a beer, beautiful people up there. People aren't watching the game. It's not serious. White Sox, that's baseball."
