I found this too good not to share. It comes from a site called Tauntr. Happy Holidays to everyone.
…I can’t give a ball to a child sitting in the outfield bleacher seats…
Now that was priceless!
I actually find the last two paragraphs quite true about Cubs fans.
I find the last sentence to be true but not the second to last. It’s really quite shameful that the team has not won a championship in over a hundred years; the fans are right to boo and expect more. When the fans boo they are not being personal, they are booing the bad performance. How many Cubs have been hissed at by the fans only to be cheered above 90 dB when they make a key hit? Bradley didn’t understand this nor did Jacque Jones. Nor did Tod Hundley for that matter.
Yeah, there’s a little bit of “Born In the U.S.A.” going on here. That is, many Cubs fans are assuming this is an all-out slam on Milton, but I’m reading some brutal truths about certain Cubs fans and members of the media.
From the Cubs web site:
On Jan. 8, free-agent outfielder Milton Bradley signed a three-year, $30 million contract with Cubs and said he feels “blessed” to get his first long-term deal. “The opinion that he wouldn’t be a good teammate or he would be a disruption in the clubhouse couldn’t be further from the truth,” GM Jim Hendry said at Bradley’s introductory news conference. … Kerry Wood thanked Cubs fans for their support in a full-page ad in Chicago newspapers after he signed with Indians. …
Kinda of funny looking back. Note the appreciation from Wood. How can one think filling a clubhouse full of guys like Wood and Derosa vs Hasbro has nothing to do with winning? I ask you.
