Ah, my dear Brando, I feel I must clarify.*
You see, I am a baseball fan - a fan of all teams, all players, and all parks BUT WRIGLEY.
When I go to a baseball game, I want to watch the game, I want to score the game, I want to enjoy the game.
At Wrigley Field, you can do none of these things.
"Scoring the game" to those asshats means having sex at the game.
For a very very very long time, I was a die-hard Cubs fan. I mean, opening day 8 years in a row fan.
Then, I started paying attention, and realizing how much I hated the people who go to Cubs games.
Not to mention the fact that the last half dozen games I attended in that frat house shit hole I was mocked, taunted, made to feel like abosolute crap. By complete strangers, as I just walked by them. More than once, every time.
I did not know that Wrigley Field had a weight limit.
I will never, not if my life depended on it, not if they were doing well step foot in that place again.
It's not a ball park - it's the city's largest outdoor bar/frat house.
Now, the Cell?
Clean, beautiful, exciting (have you seen the opening montage?!?!), and WELCOMING.
Oh, yeah, and the people there go to watch baseball.
So, yes, this North-sider has switched teams, and proudly.
I'm all in, and I'm never going back.
The Cubs? Meh - but Fuck Wrigley Field.
*And I certainly hope we can agree to disagree, and be friends.
Let's have beer soon, just not in Wrigleyville.
