Believe it or not, there are A LOT of Cubs fans. I'm sure there are a lot of bandwagon jumpers, but they had a huge loyal fan base (one of the biggest ones in professional sports) long before the playoffs this year.<br><br>
I saw that comeback last night. Quite impressive. I'm sure a lot of people are tempted to blame the fan for interfering, but I believe the error to shortstop immediately following the fan incident is to blame.<br><br>

an ESPN columnist put it best...<br><br>Yeah, that fan shouldn't have interfered with Moises Alou. But it's worth pointing out that 1) at least one other fan was trying to do exactly the same thing, 2) a lot of the people in Wrigley Field on Tuesday night would have done exactly the same thing, and 3) he didn't open the door; he only unlocked it.<br><br>Mark Prior couldn't put Luis Castillo away, or finish off Ivan Rodriguez. Alex Gonzalez booted a Sunday-hop grounder. Dusty Baker ordered a couple of intentional walks. Sammy Sosa made a terrible throw that allowed a couple of runners to advance.<br><br>Yes, the goat's already been given his horns and he's stuck with them. But a fan didn't lose this game. The Chicago Cubs did.<br><br>

I saw that too, and on the 2nd and 3rd replay it looked like the whole section almost was jumping at the little piece of history. Wow <a href=http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/playoffs2003/news/story?id=1638663 target=_blank>espn</a> even released his name, well the sun times did, but Espn put it on the net. I think I would move, just to be safe. Odds Are he has already been fired from his job, maybe not.<br><br>

I would move too. You would have to. The same thing is going to happen to this guy that happened to Mitch Williams in 1993 and Bill Buckner in 1986. <br><br>Unfortunately, there are people who forget it is just a game. <br><br>
