Re: Steve Bartman
Cubs fan here (Born in Chicago burbs). This was as gutwrenching as I had ever felt from a sporting event. I truly believe Alou would have caught that ball. Bartman could have certainly handled the situation better but I don't feel any real animosity toward him. He unfortunately looked almost to a tee of someone that is easy to despise. (the turtleneck, the nerdy glasses, the headphones) Especially to sports jocks. Now its sad but I feel almost indifferent to the Cubs and baseball in general because nothing ever changes. You have to have that hope and right now cubs fans have none and that all started with Bartman.
