Last night’s game in Chicago was kind of wacky in that it had a few weird incidents. The first is sure to end up on a blooper video (do they still even make those?) 15 years from now. It was one of those classic scenes where a stray cat breaks into a mad dash onto the field and the grounds crew guy chases him away. We just want to know how a cat gets onto the field. Or to the field and into the stadium and down the aisleway. Please explain.
The second was dealing with the infamous Steve Bartman seat, and the Chicago Cubbie fans showing their true colors. A guy kind of took a foul ball away from Alfonso Soriano in left field and happened to be sitting in the same vicinty as the famed Bartman seat. The crowd erupted into a chorus of boos and irony would have it, the camera crew then panned Dusty Baker and the ‘2003’ flag banner hanging.
Clearly signs exist that the event still burns in Wrigleyville as it did the day of it all going down. Even though Moises Alou says he wouldn’t have caught the ball anyways.
