Here's What's Wrong With The Bleachers

I don't feel like restating my disgust for The Wave, but I do have another bone to pick with the current state of affairs in the bleachers. Just take a look at this photograph from last weeks game. Look how many of these youngsters are fiddling with their phones instead of fiddling with their beers or fiddling with each other, or .... I don't know, watching the gall-dern game!

Creepiest Cubs Mascot?

The Cubbies don't have an "official" mascot, but they do have a few characters that hang around the ballpark and do their best to root, root for the home team AND kind of creep everybody out.

Here are the four I've spotted this season, and I wanted to put it to a vote so there is a poll on the top right of the blog.

Your candidates for the Creepiest Cubs Mascot are:

#1 - Billy Cub

Not sure who this dude is, but if you google him you get an article titled: The Chicago Cubs Have an Unofficial Mascot… And He Is NOT a Pervert. My favorite aspect of this guy: his igloo cooler that he uses to collect tips.

#2 - The Hot Dog Guy

This mess of a mascot isn't even trying to work for the Cubbies, but I love the dude so I'm throwin him in anyway. He walks around trying get people to go to the Full Shilling up on Clark... when he isn't in the crapper, that is.

#3 Ivy Man

To be honest, I don't know a lot about this guy. He seems tall, likes to dress like the ivy and he generally just gives me the creeps.

#4 Ronnie Woo Woo

Most people who have gone to Wrigley know about Ronnie. He is homeless, somehow gets into every game, and the dude Woo! Woo! Woo's! wherever he goes. He got a little less creepy when the Cubs donated front teeth to him years ago, but still: a little creepy.
