There was no down time, because when one set of fans wasn't cheering, the other set was screaming their lungs out.
Same holds true for when the Cardinals come into Chicago. The Cubs fans and Cardinals fans are constantly ribbing each other and heckling the teams on the field. I remember at the end of their first series this year, the Cubs fans were chanting "SWEEP! SWEEP! SWEEP!" non-stop as the third game wrapped up.
As the Cubs have gotten progressively worse, however, people have stopped coming out on the road. In past years, tons of Cubs fans would pop up everywhere from LA to Yankee Stadium to Florida. This year...that's kind of gone downhill. They're officially on pace for 100 losses, impressively enough.
