Things to remember if you're going to Wrigley Field

    1. There are nine players in play at one time on a team -- the catcher, the pitcher, first base, second base, third base, shortstop and all three outfield positions.

    2. The object of the game is simple -- score more runs than the opposing team.

    3. If the ball leaves the yard, it is called a home run. If the opponent hits it, you're welcome to throw it back.

    4. (d) Spectator interference occurs when a spectator reaches out of the stands, or goes on the playing field, and touches a live ball.

    5. Forget rules 1-4, because if you're a "Cubs fan" you're likely not watching the game anyway.

    (If you're a true Cub fan, my condolences.)

    The scary thing? Lou Piniella as quoted in the Chicago Tribune: "You have a couple of beers and you try and catch a ball," he said. "What can I say?"

    Yup, he gets it. He's a Cubs manager now.

    Poor Steve Bartman. There were like three other people reaching for the ball on that play, too.

    Deliberately Misquoting Other Posters

    You may use the quote feature to respond to specific posts from other members. However, changing the meaning or words of a quote while still attributing it to the other member is a violation of SportsJournalists.com's rules. Anyone doing so will be subject to the disciplinary process. (The use of ellipses to show a quote was abbreviated is allowed, so long as the original meaning is not lost.)

    Killjoy!

    And yes, Bartman was one of the most undeserved goats ever.

    If you're going to Wrigley Field, don't let the person you're going with take the tickets you bought, sell them on eBay, and pick up "better" ones for two times the price and make you pay. Otherwise, you end up behind a pole.

    Oh, bitter? Nah, not me.

    You won't be watching baseball (at least, played by the home "team"), but the remainder of that
    statement is dead-on.

    If you are going to Wrigley Field, chances are you are unemployed. </LeeElia>

    A guarantee - you'll see someone win. Chances are it probably won't be the Cubs.
