Baseball Shorts

The Cubs exorcise two demons from the past in one inning! (Yahoo! Big League Stew)


File under #CubsFail:

Be careful buying tickets directly from a Major League Baseball team. Apparently it's possible to steal the barcode off the tickets during shipping or handling and sell them out from under you on StubHub. And as long as your ticket's new owner gets into the stadium first, your SOL and the team doesn't care.

That's what happened to one Cubs fan. That's just wrong on so many levels. As one commenter put it:
Had that been me, I would of stayed there until something was done about it, or I would be hauled away in handcuffs.


File under #NationalsFail:

The team suspends and fines their best player for showing up 5 minutes late after being at a team sponsored little league charity event. Then the Little League raises money to pay the fine. That's good PR. (Thanks Diana.)

What's wrong with this picture:

After all there's no "O" in team. (Thanks again to Diana, and my sister.)

Apparently their $300 - $2500 premium seats aren't selling. Go figure? But at least you can buy raw meat while you're at the ballpark.

  1. I saw that thing about the Cubs tickets linked somewhere else (Yahoo sports, maybe). I can't believe that guy just left--he needs to grow a pair and stick up for himself.

    If that ever happens to us, babe...well, you know how I can be. And I know how you can be.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
