I laugh at Cubs fans who think the Steve Bartman foul ball meant something. He is a friggin' fan and that moment should have never happened.
If you want to lay blame on someone, lay it on jerkweed Alex Gonzales, a player who couldn't field a Sunday hop to turn two with the slow-footed Miggy Cabrera running. If he turns two, Prior and the Cubs get out of the inning with minimal damage done and go back in the dugout with a 3-1 lead in the 8th, and the lower part of the line-up coming up in the top of the 9th for the Marlins.
As a painful reminder, the footage is below. You judge for yourself. If you want to go directly to that moment, it is at the 1:38 mark.
Trolls have taken over once again on the Cubs comments section on CBS. I tried this site earlier in this fall, but it seemed so many posters were focused on past message board happenings. I'll give this site another go-around.
Name: Been a fixture on the CBS Boards (mainly the NBA Board) since 2007, haven't had any luck using my actual name on the internet in general, so just call me HurricaneDij39, or Hurricane for short as others have done. 25 years old but closer to 26 than 25. Hardly a kid anymore but would like to maintain that entusiasm.
Fave Present Player: Ehh. Jeff Samardzija I guess since he's from NW Indiana just like myself, and Welington Castillo. Happy with his progression as the season went along.
Fave Past Player: Sammy Sosa and Moises Alou.
Fave Cubs Moment: Among those that come to mind are Aramis Ramirez's grand slam off Dontrelle Willis in the 1st inning of Game 4 in 2003 after he walked the bases loaded to open the game. That had me believing we were going to the World Series before, of course, we lost each of the last three games of the series. Dayrle Ward's go-ahead pinch-hit two-run homer off Kevin Gregg in 2008 also comes to mind. Couldn't help but to love Gregg while he was with the Cubs though simply because he was the poor sap everyone hated.
Other Sports: Basketball. Pacers fan at heart, but the Nuggets are my bandwagon experiment for the year and hopefully beyond. Like everyone else around here, hated LeBron ever since 2010.
