"just trendies, maybe thats why you took offense to my comments"
I'll be the first to admit that baseball bores me to tears. Can't watch it on TV, and I'm pretty sure I couldn't name more than 10 current players to save my life. HOWEVER - I love going to Cubs games.
When I'm there, I have a great time, and actually watch the game. I get caught up in the highs and lows, I cheer for the hometeam, and I sing the 7th inning stretch song. I'm not a baseball fan, but I am a Cubs fan. It's a great part of Chicago. If you lived 4 blocks away from a professional baseball stadium you'd probably go to the games to?
Call me a poser or whatever you'd like to. Personally, I'd rather go to a game with a stadium full of people that are out for a good time than a crowd of people listening to the game on their headsets and concentrating on their scorecards.
...but that's just me. I'm trendy like that.
edit: I do admit that I'm not a baseball fan though. I don't walk around in a Cubs jersey, and I don't defend them to the death or enter into Cubs/Sox debates. So I'm not "that" guy. I'm the guy drinking in the bleachers hitting on your girlfriend enjoying the sunshine.
