Cubs at 3-2, this is the best record they've had under Theo.
Now we get our second look at Lester tomorrow vs the Reds.
Was at the game tonight, and the energy after Soler hit the 2nd home run to tie the game was awesome! Overall, I'm excited with how the Cubs have started.
Thanks man, surprised I never found this thread. Long time Cubs fan...still will never get over 03'. I cried as a lil kid that game hahaha. Oh well, glad to see the Cubs starting off strong.
Repped. I went a few pages back and nothing but excitement as to the year beginning. I've always been the Cubs fan that says "This is our year" as a joke and when Cubs got Maddon as the head coach a lot of old people and friends hit me up on FB asking what I thought about it lol. Very excited for this year, I just want to see us end above .500 which would be considered a win in my books.
& When Bartman caught that ball, I still remember crying cause that was the game. I won't lie I fell off from like 08-12. But these last two years I've been more into baseball than I ever have.
No, it wasn't. There were plenty of other **** in that game that lost it for them. I can't stand Cubs fans using that as an excuse.
Granted yeah there were other factors not just him solely, but from what I took away the most that game was that incident. Hearing it in the media and everything definitely is something that stuck with me as a child.
No, you're right about that. And at the time it happened, in the heat of the moment, I was like "this dude did something bad"
But there was more to that game than that, (hindsight of course) that lost it for them; most notably when Alex Gonzalez made that error that gave Florida a bunch more runs that inning. The media ruined Bartman and the fact the dude got death threats and stuff was an absolute joke. **** everyone of those fans. And I'm not talking about the ones that were just upset because they were in the moment, but the ones that literally made the dude go into hiding. They are probably the same dumb *** Chicago Bears fans that thought it was totally, super awesome when McClellin broke Arron Rodgers collarbone.
