Natty Broadcaster Takes Cubs Fans to Task

Cincinnati Reds’ broadcast-hall-of-famer Marty Brennaman recently spent about two minutes ripping on Cubs fans after they threw not just the ball hit but also a shit-ton of other balls onto the field after a Reds’ home run at Wrigley Field. Calling Cubs fans “the most obnoxious fans in baseball in this league,” Brennaman let loose about what baseball fans like Griff have known for a long time: Cubs fans suck. Now what could account for the painfully obnoxious behavior of these fans? Maybe it’s simply because they’re from Chicago. Maybe it’s too much Old Style. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s been almost a century since they’ve won a World Series and it hurts. Or any combination of the above. Either way, this dude is hilarious:

My favorite part: “It’s ridiculous, it really is … You simply root against them. I’ve said all winter, people talk about this team winning the division, and my comment is they won’t win it because at the end of the day, they’re still the Chicago Cubs and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up.”
