I don't even want to talk about the ball game. Yes the Cubs got smoked yesterday by 85 year old Pedro Martinez and the Phillies. Yes it was a big loss, yes the Cubs have plenty of issues I could talk about right now but really I only want to talk about one thing.
What kind of person tosses a beer on anyone let alone a player trying to catch a fly ball? You pay how much for those seats just to make fool and show how little of a person you are. Sure I might dislike many guys in pro sports but I would never ever do something like this. I always laugh when people say imagine if someone came to where you work and heckled you all day….well these guys make some serious coin and can deal with some heckling but having things thrown at you is going way over the line.
I woke up today ashamed to be a Cubs fan. We make a guy like Bartman who really was just the first guy to grab the souvenir the whole section wanted but is a die hard Cubs fan feel like he can never step foot in Wrigley again but we don't give this chump a kick in the face for tossing beer at players. Sure he tossed it at a Philly which obviously isn't going to get the same reaction as something happening to a Cub…but come on man. I can't even begin to describe how dissapointed I was to see this happen at Wrigley.
I would hope this doesn't start any sort of a trend. These things and just classless. We all pay to go watch the best players in whatever sport we love and they put on a good show for us. Sure sometimes our favorite teams lose but lets keep in mind that both sides entertain us. You can bet Victorino will never sign a free agent contract with the Cubs now.
Whoever you are….you put a black eye on Cubs fans. Fans everywhere I hope are all better people than that. Glad Victorino came out on top last night having to deal with that junk.
