But does Marty Brennaman have a point?

By now, most baseball fans have heard about Cincinnati broadcaster Marty Brennaman's comments that Cub fans are the most obnoxious in the league.

Thank goodness he doesn't broadcast from the stands - he only knows the half of it.

I was there Tuesday night with lifelong White Sox fan, Frank the Tank, where we came to the conclusion that while a Sox fan might knife you in the parking lot for gas money to get home, Cub fans were likely to force you from the ballpark in a fit of rage.

Case in point were the four fans who sat next to us during the final three innings of Tuesday's game. After missing the first six innings, they sat down and spent the final three innings taking pictures of each other, buying beer, complaining when beer was no longer served and wondering loudly where Ronnie Woo Woo was.

It's my longstanding complaint that the majority of fans who attend games are Wrigley Field fans - Frank calls this the World's Largest Beer Garden Syndrome - and don't really pay attention to the game being played.

While there are plenty of good baseball fans who back the Cubs, they seem to be a dying breed, or are at least being drowned out by those who are more into getting drunk and booing for no apparent reason.

Marty, you don't know the half of how bad it can be.

  • Let's face it; these people use Wrigley's urinal troughs like a slip'n'slide. They're delirious with the idea that the Cubs will ever win a pennant. They sing whiny songs about the "Cubbies".

    Generations of losers. The sweet old ladies with the Cub earrings that were all you saw back in the 70's, when EVERYONE knew the Cubs sucked, even Cub fans, well, those sweet old ladies have grandkids who come out to the park, get wasted on bad beer and surf the urinals and post it on YouTube like they're cool.

    Lovable? No. Losers? You betcha.

    I'll take the South Side anyday.
