mcjaco Posted June 2, 2006 Share Posted June 2, 2006 OK, so I'm a devoted Cub fan (thanks Dad) that's been cherring for the Cubbie Blue for over 31 years now. In that span the "Lovable Losers" have gone to the playoffs 4 times......FOUR stinking times. It pains me to think that there's a 15 year old Brave fan that doesn't have any idea that a team can't make the playoffs. Anyway, this year I decided against purchasing any tickets to show my disgust with the Tribune Company for pulling the wool over our eyes for the past 20 some odd years. They won't get my money....yeah that will show them. My buddy, however, still clings onto the hopelessness and gets ten games worth of tickets every year, just in case. Whatever, these guys are miserable. So, he's got an extra ticket and asks me so, naturally, after a two game winning streak I'm feeling pretty good (their first since August of last year) and I relent. Seriously, I might as well jab pencils in my eyes, it would be less painful. Here we go: (I magically posted these pics backwards.....I'm a Photo TR virgin, be gentle.) The statue of Harry Carry, the most overated sportscaster of all time. Note the sun beams, I think it's photographic proof that the Tribune Company is still trying to blow sunshine up Harry's buttocks. The famed Marquee. Hmmm, seems to be at a loss for words....as is the rest of Cub Nation. I will admit still the prettiest scoreboard in the bigs. I will note that the Cubs make this easy for the guys working out there. They just have to make sure not to run out of zeros. Man I did get here early. Better get that buzz going, it eases the misery of watching. Here's to you! This is for Wally. Quite a view from the nosebleeds. Look at that cell tower array. And yet, they are more interesting to watch than the Cubs. Let the drinking begin, we've got two hits through 7 innings! No better sight than baseball under the lights. It hasn't helped the Cubs, they still stink. As I walk out in disgust...again, I snap one more picture. I won't be back this year you stinky ass clowns.
