It's definitely nice of the Cubs to do that and a classy move on their part.

FWIW, it wasn't their responsibility to do so and they didn't owe him any debt - that was all on the fans.

I assign a material slice of the blame pie to Moises Alou for his reaction. Act like a professional and move on to the next play IMO.

True. That got the fans riled up a little. He did apologize for that later, as I recall.

Also a material amount of blame on the TV broadcast who kept showing the poor guy looking all vulnerable in his headphones and turtleneck and getting escorted out. Showing the replay is fair game, but showing the reality story of the poor fan in the wrong place/wrong time was trashy. There's a reason he was a popular Halloween costume - because we all saw him on TV over and over again in this pose well after the play:



I even remember them saying "he's wearing headphones, which means he's probably listening to the broadcast and knows what he just did" or something like that. The story was being written that way for the fans to consume - so can't blame it all on the fans.

39 runs in three games against the Mets!

Now...huge series against the Cards.

Go Cubs Go!


I will be rooting for the Cards tomorrow night, but different Cards (Louisville Cards against Clemson Tigers).

For a division clinch (hopefully)! Cubs win or Brewers loss is all that's needed. Would like them to get 90 wins (at least).

It's been over 325 days since the last Cubs World Series Championship. Overdue for another one, IMO!
