Cubs Fans Are Out Of Their Collective Mind

Friday, August 08, 2008

Cubs Fans have long been called the craziest, and also obnoxious (Brennamania!), fans in Major League Baseball. I think we can add this clip to the list of unbelievable antics by the Bleacher Bums.

Meet Molly Dapier who reports for Mouthpiece Sports. Molly is doing a spot outside Wrigley and some interested fans want to get on the broadcast. Hmmm, we have a bunch of could we possible? Ohhhhhhh! Via HR Derby....

Awesome. I understand she's pissed, and I would be too, but in the end it's just water. She's lucky it wasn't goat blood or something. Good times.

This is how Cub fans get a bad name - dumping water on Blonde reporters (Homerun Derby)

Knowing Cubs fans, the likelihood that there was at least a trace of urine in there is pretty good.

Obviously, they were just congratulating her on reporting the hell out of something.

Awesome? Good times? A tag of Great Ideas? Are those really your comments on this? That's really weak on your part, aa. I know I give you grief a lot. But in this case, I expect much better from you.

That must be a great world you live in. You know, the one where sarcasm doesn't exist.

I hate to finally agree with AAHE, but if that's sarcasm, it's poorly written and poorly presented.

Obviously, it's Steve Bartman's fault!

What the fuck is right.

It's 'just water'? Let me tell you this, AA, how would you like to have some dipshit painted blue come to your work and douse you with a bucket full of water, and then say 'hey, it's just water. Get over it!'

Uncalled for, not funny in the slightest.

This site is getting more and more misogynistic every day. Women make up, what 5%, of TV sports' on-air talent? This site has objectified almost every one of them. I'm sure you will try to explain away each of these individually. But there's a pattern here that's really disturbing. Let's start with your Razzie awards, named after Pam Ward, one of the few women in the business, rather one of the many men who also suck. There's, of course, your weird infatuation with Erin Andrews, who this site ogles to a disturbing degree, especially when you discuss in detail what she wears and how she should wear it. You reserve some of your most caustic comments for Dana Jacobson, who you lampoon whenever you can. You're at your worst when you talk about Rachel Nichols--a truly dogged reporter. You, however, describe her as someone who is 4-feet tall which "kinds weirds [you] out." I'm not sure what they has to do with her job, but, whatever. I'm sure you think your comments about Bonnie Bernstein--your crush on her and how you want to marry her--are funny and tongue-in-cheek, but I think they are just creepy and completely unprofessional. Almost unbelievably, you commended ESPN on hiring Sage Steele because hiring "a black female is an especially good move for them from a PR standpoint." Now this. You find it hilarious when some pretty blond, who is just trying to do her job, gets doused with water by some jackass. I'm sure your going to get hyper-defensive when you read this. But hopefully you'll think about it and start to check yourself when you write about women. Because I find it hard to believe that your real views toward women mirror your writing.

Okay, first of all the good times line was sarcasm. Sorry if that was lost on you. Second, anyone can paint anyone in a bad light if they want to AAHE and you did a good job of that.

I've also wrote articles praising Erin Andrews, Stacey Dales, Pam Oliver and Doris Burke. I've even championed for ESPN to bring women sideline reporters into the booth to practice being an analyst during the regular season.

I also give the same amount of attention to Joe Buck, Emmitt Smith, Mike Patrick and Chris Berman.

Race, Gender, Sexual Preference have nothing to do with who I like or dislike on the site. If you don't believe that to be the case, you're just ignorant. It's just that simple.

she probably set it up as a publicity stunt for her little little show. notice how her cameraman follows the perp?

If it were Erin Andrews in a tank top, then it would be news. But a chubby tubby unknown? No story here.

Poor AA is the subject of the racist/sexist lobs he enjoys throwing out.

See, this is why you root for the Cubs to lose. This is despicable.

*insert 10 more minutes of lecturing*

Where's my pudding?

Wow. I have to agree with some of the above posters. I have no idea how you can even come close to condoning this.
