what a whiner. at least cubs are good. they're poised to win a lot this year. the only contenders in the central are cubs and brewers. the rest of the teams suck. a nod to the pirates who are at least improving.

i love cubs fans. they have a passion matched only by boston and yankees fans.

Nice tirade. :-D Being the Reds broadcaster though, I hope he does have some hatred for a division rival.

Good for Marty Brennamen. In an age where broadcasters have become cheerleaders or so politically correct that they can't criticize anything it's refreshing to hear a hall of fame calliber guy tell it like it is.
Yes, I know there are some knowledgable Cubs fans out there but he's absolutely right about the majority of the people in the stands at Wrigley. It's a party, an event, a place to be seen more than a ball game and that is why you see fans acting like every game is game seven of the World Series; of course, if the Cubs lose, it's no sweat off their backs--the Cubs are the loveable losers-- they're supposed to lose.

Yeah, this is the same Marty Brennaman that said the Reds fans were justified in throwing golf balls, lighters, marbles, and all other kinds of crap on the field back in '88 when his beloved Pete Rose got into it with an umpire and was ejected.

Guess his opinion of right and wrong all depends on what color jersey the fans are wearing.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

I have alway pretty much agreed with that sentiment. When the day comes that the Wrigley Field is no longer the home of the Cubs (and I hope that is a long time from now since I love the old stadiums)...I think you will see a major difference in the Cub fandom. How many thousands of people (from all parts of the country) a season make the trek to 1060 West Addison in Chicago just to see Wrigley field?

A big part of the Cub mystique is tied directly to Wrigley Field IMO. You could almost say the same thing about the Packers and Lambeau Field. I am a diehard Packer fan (since the early 70's)....but must admit that Lambeau Field and the Packers go hand in hand and one without the other would just not be the same. I mean...to this day..I still get goose bumps walking into Lambeau. I will always love the Packers...but part of the excitement of going to a game is the chance to once again sit in Lambeau Field.

If he wants to say that Cubs fans throwing 18 balls on to the field at one time is "typical" (really, how many times has that happened in the past at Wrigley), then I'll say, with good authority, that his holier-than-thou attitude on display during that clip is typical of University of North Carolina graduates. He sounds like a baseball version of Woody Durham.

And how about that stunning insight when discussing predictions that the Cubs will not win the division: "at the end of the day, they'll lose because they're the Chicago Cubs". Wonderful logic there, Marty.

Lots of jealously in that clip. The only thing embarrassing is the competition the cubs have in the central this yr. :-)
