Cheer Up, Milwaukee

Yep, that sucked. All of the good feelings from the Pirates series were completely erased by the sleep walk sweep the Brewers just went through against the Cubs.

But there are a couple reasons to keep our heads held high as we head into a new week. First, the Pirates are coming to town, and that’s a good cure for a team coming off a bad series. And, second, we’re not as stupid as Cubs fans. Not even close. Seriously, in the same day, some Cubs fan fell 14 feet out of the Miller Park left field bleachers trying to catch a BP ball and a group of mouth breathing baby bear backers swapped drivers at 70 mph on their way home from the game AND put the exhibition in idiocy up on YouTube (check about the 8:15 minute mark of the video for the actual switch)? Can’t make this stuff up…

Oh, and I guess it’s spread to the team too. Check out the quotes from Ryan Theriot on the flyball flopper:

“Very shaken up, looking around the stadium, there’s got to be something to prevent that. I guess it could happen to anybody going for a ball.”

Um, there is something to prevent that — a freaking brain. Should the Brewers equip all Cubs fans with helmets and mouth guards as they enter the stadium to protect them from their own stupidity? I mean they might walk into a support beam too. Or maybe try to do acrobatics down the steps on the way to their seats. And, no, it couldn’t happen to anybody, Ryan. It only happened to one moron.

Honestly, I hope the guy isn’t hurt bad. It sounds like it was pretty scary and nobody wants to see a fan of any team get seriously hurt at a baseball game.

But, really, how does that even happen?

    Saw the whole thing happen. A lone Cubs fan out on the foul pole snagging balls… Reached over, committed too far, and just went over. No one was sitting in the section the rest of the game! He seemed to make the catch though! Didn’t see the ball pop out when he hit the ground!

    Seriously - someone got hurt! Regardless of what type of fan he is, not very cool to make fun of his accident!

    I think it’s hilarious, did the guy have a glove? Then it would warrent a fall from that high up.

  5. Jared Says:

    I’m beginning to think the fan who fell was actually The Happy Youngster.

    Facts:

    1. The article states it was a “man wearing Cubs gear.” The Happy Youngster is the incredibly lame dude that wears the opposing team’s stuff during BP at Miller Park to get the opposing team’s players to toss him baseballs, which he then blogs about.

    2. The dude fell in left field and that’s where Happy regularly sits.

    3. It was apparently a guy that was by himself. Happy regularly attends games solo to snag balls.

    4. The man who fell and the Brewers seem to be trying pretty hard to keep the name private. The Happy Youngster took a lot of heat last year during the Coghlan home run ball thing. I’m guessing he wouldn’t fare well if his name reappeared in the media because of this. He would understandably want to avoid that. And the Brewers probably just don’t want anything to do with the Happy Youngster…

    5. Who else cares that much about a baseball? Especially a BP baseball?

    OK, so it probably wasn’t the Happy Youngster, but stranger things have happened. Just saying…
