Apparently people don’t like this sort of behavior, your Cubs series preview

Apparently people don't like it when people do stuff like this, which is kind of stupid really. If I saw a guy walking down the street with his friend filming him I'd boo him too. (That's probably why I got fired from my job as an extra on that Keanu Reeves movie.) This is so obviously pre-planned you'd think it was for a reality dating show. There is absolutely no reason to be filming that unless you want to get attention and make Cubs fans look stupid. (Hint: they don't need your help.)

I'm not saying they weren't dicks, but the fact is that this sort of behavior is to be expected at a baseball game especially one where you are an away fan. If you don't expect to hear "you suck" at least fifty times, you're an idiot. It's kind of the point, you want one team to win and one team to lose. If someone is around that wants your team to lose, you don't like them. That's just how it works, it's not a big deal. Someone is going to boo you, don't frickin' cry about it.

The site I found this video on had a discussion in the comments calling this "distasteful" saying "they can't take their kids to games" and my personal favorite "as a Cubs fan, I am quite embarrassed." Really? He got booed. BOOED. People used their mouths to make a "boo" sound and directed it at him. That's it.

Did he get a drink thrown at him? No.Did he get punched? No.
Was his day ruined? Only if he's a gigantic pussy.

The worst thing that happened to him was one guy said the f-word and another guy got a little too close for comfort. Those guys were dicks, but Mercurial Outfielder of Another Cubs Blog seems like the only one of the lot with the sense to realize it.

The booing seems playful, but if you stick your hand in another man's face, that man has the right to punch you in the throat and leave you in the street.

Exactly. Some douchebag took playful booing too far. Shocking.

The reason we bring this up is because the Cubs are coming to town and complaints about people acting like douchebags are going to be aplenty. I know a lot of people who are going to games this weekend and most of them are prepared for some sort of negative interaction with Cubs fans. I'm not trying to start a "all Cubs fans are douchebags" bitchfest (this isn't Brew Crew Ball). We all remember this Brewers fan from last year's Opening Day who out-douched everyone in the video above, right? The truth is that there is going to be stupid, drunken idiots on both sides. As Wrigleyville23 points out:

wisconsinians are no better, however. this is, after all, the land where a man taped his son to a tree because he wouldn't wear his brett favre jersey during a game

Umm, yeah. Way to take one story and apply it to the entire fanbase. Every White Sox fan has sex in the bathroom because I heard that one person did!

People get drunk and we're all about that. People act stupid and we usually do that too. Look at the website name, there's nothing I like more than getting drunk at Miller Park and watching baseball. That's the key thing, watching baseball. Stupid people get drunk and go to this series. Casual fans who don't know who's on the team and would much rather be watching the Packers play the Bears come out to the game and want to get stupid drunk. They don't care about the game as much as they care about getting drunk, but they want the one team to lose and they will berate the other team's fans regardless of the outcome. It happens on both sides and it happens every single time these two play. Some people are just not there for the baseball. It's not us, it's not them. It's idiots on both sides.

Unfortunately, some people don't understand that. Check out what our friend Wrigleyville23 said in an interview at BrewCrewBall:

I've been to Cubs games in Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Philly, New York, St. Louis, Miami and Washington, and there haven't been problems like there seem to be when they go up the road in Milwaukee.

Maybe it's you people.

Which pairs well with BrewCrewBall's own editor KLSnow's thoughts on the matter:

I understand that people will disagree, but at the risk of dropping a bit of my professionalism, I’ll be open in the admission that I can’t stand a fair portion of the population of Cub fans. They’re the only fan base I’ve ever seen make Miller Park uninhabitable, the type of fan I’ll skip games to avoid. I know there are good baseball fans in the Cub fan population, but they’re outnumbered (or at least outscreamed) a segment of their fans that don’t deserve even the implication of respect.

No matter what side of the argument you're on, the answer is clear: it's not us, it's them. And you know what? They're both right because there is going to be plenty of drunk idiots to go around and they'll be on both sides.

Our best advice is to just try to get along and not be a douchebag. Be like these nerds.

    blahblahblah. Big deal. Ooooh! He gave me the finger! Wah wah call the wambulance. FIBs are hardly worth discussing. One time I was at a game at Lambeau Field and this Bears fan sitting next to me couldn’t handle his alcohol and spewed during the third quarter. Karmically, he was positioned so that all the vomit went directly down inside the front of his snowmobile suit. They’re FIBs. They don’t know how to drink. who gives a flying f?

    I was at the Brewers/Nats Game where the Brewers scored 10 runs in the first inning. During BP, a guy in a Brewers shirt was running around with his glove trying to horde balls into his backpack. He jumped in front of a kid and snagged one and put it in his pocket. I was ashamed he was wearing a Brewers shirt. D-bags on both sides is right.

    Funny, I have been to wrigley many times decked out in Brewer gear. Last week I even rode the L to the game. It was crowded with Cubs fans, including Ronnie Woo Woo, I got a headache from him. But I have never been heckled. I read this earlier and then went to the game with group including one cubs fan. As we went to walk in me and another friend had to push people away because they were in his face heckling so much. And one of the guys heckling him the worst was sporting a baseball mitt. Both sides can be embarrasing

    welp my satire having been exposed there, i can tell you that, indeed, in my many travels i have found the typical post/fratboy cubs fan to be the biggest douches in all of baseball. and i’ve done a fucking mets game for christ’s sake.

    one poignant memory comes from april 15, 2004 when it was a friday afternoon and i had shit to do after work and having just got paid i got dropped off my by friend in wrigleyville (we had to go to the citay to procure our weekendload of ‘dro) so i played the scalper game about 10-15 mins after first pitch (“oh alls i got is this $20… sorry if the ticket isn’t $30 i wasn’t planning to see a baseball game today”) and sure enough i got a $30 general mez B4 THE POLES seat for $20. steak dinner boom.

    i nab my scorecard and head to my seat by the B1. behind me i’ve got frat-row like 5 deep in matching homemade shirts commemorating some douche’s birthday and they’re drinking up a storm. i heard the madness starting to compound behind me “hey johnny look this dude is keeping score– HEHEHEHEHEHE” and all of a sudden one of them gets the beer muscles to say “HEY YOU’RE KEEPING SCORE GOOD JOB!! WHOOO!” [i put them on /ignore for you irc fans] eventually i hear “HEY FAGGOT, HOW’S YOUR FANTASY BASEBALL TEAM DOING THIS YEAR?!” accompanied by a row’s worth of chortles and chuckles and outright laughter. without turning around i stick up the middle finger and say “FIRST IN THE LEAGUE” which, at that point, was indeed no lie.

    i didn’t take it personal until their HEY FAGGOTing (which they used ALL…FUCKING…GAME…LONG..) was so boisterous that it actually killed my chances of flirting with this chick cuz she and her cousin were so annoyed with them they’re like “we’re, uh, going to go get a beer and let your fanclub settle down” cuz they were seat hustling girls, they knew what was up.. i saw them down in the double digit sections later (i was in the 100 level) and at that point i was pissed. i mean, i’ve been ridden and heckled (“HEY EXPOS!!” being a familiar refrain, cuz starting in 01 due to fantasy baseball i saw a player named vladimir guerrero bat and it was like aliens “game over man, game over” that’s my guy that’s my team that’s my shit. having done opening day 03 in freezing temps with 4 expos jerseys layered upon each other with a hoodie popping out, you know i was there.

    also, there were two chicks in front of me on opening day 03 in the freezing cold (the game was pushed back to tuesday 4 snow removal purposes) who were on the phone ALL FUCKING GAME LONG talking about what real fans they are and rah rah rah. “where are you?! well we’re at the game cuz we’re real fans and we’re here!” literally they called up people ALL FUCKING GAME LONG saying that shit. when oh canada played they turned around and nodded at me like “hey canadian this is your moment” and alls i could muster was a “bitch i’m from elk grove”

    thank god this was a civilized epoch of baseball where you could smoke in the concourses, which meant that smoking weed in the bathroom stalls was a possibility. oh the joys of being 23 again, as i’ve since given up my mass-weed-smoking ways and as such, my old txtfile on how to get away with smoking weed at every major league ballpark i’ve been to has since been rendered moot, since walking out of a shitter with a lit cigarette is no longer a feasible thing to do)

    anyways, back to april 15 2004. so frat row behind me, believe it or not, is stone cold passed out drunk by the bottom of the 7th inning. i mean, seriously, they are all fucking passed out from drinking so much so fast and being so WHOOOOO CUBBIES like, i had other people in my row and behind them, you know, the “real” fans that you speak of, absolutely hating their guts and everyone knew that i was being ridden all game for no reason (i didn’t even have a jersey going, just my standard issue true blue expos cap even tho vlad was on the angels that year… c’est la vie) so i go back to the concourse and load up with a bunch of ketchup packets… now would be a good time to remember that they were all wearing matching cheap white homemade t-shirts with some photo of one of the douches in a compromising position to celebrate his birthday.

    with the permission of the people in the row behind them, i got down and on the back/shoulders of their shirts wrote “hey faggot” on back of each one of their shirts. i didn’t commemerate the event with a picture as i didnt have my camera on me and i didn’t carry a cellphone at that juncture in time and space, so i know the internet mentality of “PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN” is up against me, but i mean, these motherfuckers had it coming. i got a couple’a beers for my trouble, cuz the cutoff is B7 and this was T7″

    and the best part? these assclowns were stone cold passed out drunk in a game where the cubs were down 8-7 going into B9 and sosa and alou hit back to back homeruns on two pitches to tie and then win the game. it was the most exciting climax to a game i’ve ever witnessed in my life, and these fuckers who were riding my faggot-ass for keeping score and my overall propensity to engage in sodomy were STONE COLD PASSED OUT DRUNK WITH HEY FAGGOT WRITTEN ON THEIR BACKS IN CATSUP while this marvelous ending was happening.

    keep in mind that since 9/11 wrigley is wrigged up with video cameras and they have staff watching them so undoubtedly security had seen me doing what i did, but since some security people visited them at least twice, i think they let it roll. the irony is i first found this out on 9/11/02, a cubs/expos date, when my friend passed out drunk and they came running down nabbed him took him to a back room and accused him of being on heroin. i was like, dude, he turned 21 about 4-5 days ago. my friend works at the hotel monaco we had a room for like $30 downtown. i kept him out on rush street til ~4-5am and we brought a couple of chicks back to the room who kept him up til 7. it’s 1:30pm and how the man is even able to walk with the hangover he has, i mean, more power to him.

    so yeah, i mean there are real cubs fans out there… the ~50+ year crusty old grizzled baseball vets who damn well know the cubs suck and aren’t going to win (and one of them, my grandfather, lives in ratsmouth, erm, boca raton florida where he gets the marlins so he can watch his guy, and ex-cubs-farmhand from the juan pierre trade, ricky nolasco, do his thing) you know, the type of guys you can have a shot and a beer with and swap stories with. they’re ~1-5% of the fanbase. the other 95%, i mean, that video exaggerates it, but i mean, at mark prior’s debut in 02 i was expoed out for a cubs/pirates game and i remember it was CUBS PRIDE NIGHT as i caught an extraordinary amount of shit for representing the best overall player in baseball at that time, vladimir guerrero (not from the real fans tho) and one of the guys ran up to me and chokeslammed me up against a wall and said “you listen and you listen good, faggot. you’re at a cubs game, you’re in chicago… you wear a cubs jersey, PREFERABLY SOSA, or an urlacher jersey, or you go the fuck home”

    i was able to mutter out “that’s where you’re going” cuz within ~15 seconds he was grabbed by 2-3 security persons grabbed him and escorted him out. they gave me some sort of a voucher for $20 of free concessions as an apology for what happened. free beer. and prior was good, striking out ~8-10 in ~6 1/3 IP of 2 ER ball and you know, i was there, man, i was there.
