There are no style point in baseball. You do not get an extra point in the standings if you hit more home runs then you competitor that evening and score fewer runs, it’s just a loss. You lost, too bad, so sad, come back tomorrow and try to win. It’s a shame that Cubs’ fans don’t understand winning or how baseball is played.
I tried to eat my burrito quietly at “El Burrito Mexicano” at a table post a Giants sweeps of the Cubs in a day/night doubleheader played at Wrigley. I’m wearing a Giants jersey and cap as my next favorite to the Sox is the Giants and has been since I was a kid. I try to make to at least one Giants game at Wrigley every year.
“Giants got a bunch of cheap runs by getting little hits tonight,” griped that fat sack of crap Cubs fan that sat across the aisle from me.
“Why do you have to give the guy shit,” asked his buddy, “Giants won twice today.”
“It’s how they won, with a bunch of base hits, little hits,” said the idiot.
I did not look over, I just ate my burrito, but what I wanted to say was, “hitting is a part of the game and whether they leave the park or are hit on the ground, if you collect enough of them, you can win the game. That’s baseball you fucking idiot! Understand it or go home.”
I finished my burrito and left, but what I realized about the Cubs is they will never win a championship because of karma, like Crash Davis told Nuke Laloosh, “you don’t respect the game and that’s your problem.”
The Cubs fans don’t respect the game and baseball will never will allow them to win because they’ve turned the game into a circus, and that is something that can never be forgiven. If you’ve watched Ken Burn’s documentary you understand what I’m talking about.
The Cubs aren’t doomed because of a goat! They are doomed because they don’t respect the sanctity of the sport; the fans, the ownership and the players, and the proof is in the pictures.
This needs to be filed under “Drunk Ramblings.” To characterize an entire fan base and the future of a franchise based on the actions of a sloshed meathead in a late-night burrito joint, a homeless person and a t-shirt is ludicrous. Get some sleep. – RS
If it were an isolated incident then I would agree with you, but it’s just another day in Cubland.
They gave WooWoo free fucking food so he would leave the people alone. That’s a guy that the Cubs let roam the stadium.
We should be getting free food at El Burrito Mexicano for the damn burritos we’ve ordered!
That shirt should be the Cubs new marketing campaign.
Fair enough, but the Sox new marketing campaign should be “You play like s—, you go home like s—.”
We’re talking about the Cubs, not sure why the Sox have entered the conversation. I think at the end of the season the Sox marketing campaign will be, “Helping the Tigers come up short again.”
