The yuppies have taken it over and the price of a ticket has gotten outrageous. I also hate what they did with the wall behind home. Took down that big beautiful wall so that more of the rich could watch the game.
Then there are the frat boys in standing room only that like to trip you while you are holding 3 beers and 2 nachos. I'll just watch them on TV from now on. When I want to go to a ballpark, I'll pay $5 and go to US Cellular.

Hell, even over the last 7 years. Me and 8 buddies showed Tony Gwynn how real fans can heckle for 9 straight innings. For evidence, go to your local library and find our picture in the Chicago Sun-Times from May 16, 1997 by a recap of the Cubs/Padres game. Take special notice of the attire of the kid in the lower right corner compared to ours.
yeah the tribune has deep pockets, but you expect them to run things like a business and if you want the Cubs to win, they gotta spend money, and to spend money, they gotta make money. more seats + higher proces accomplishes this. or we could just hire billy beane.

Wrigleyville is over run with 20 somethings who arent from chicago....that is why it is like a frat party, being in my 20s i cant say i totally complain, but i do sypathize with those who have scorecards....my advice??? dump your loser team and make the 4 hour drive to busch where you can actually see a winner and REAL BASEBALL FANS!!!!!!!
