    The fans at the game may not have known what the announcers said but the fans at home did and you know they texted or called their friends at the game and told them what happened and who the culprit was and where he was sitting and the fans at the game reacted like they did. Especially the ones who had been drinking all evening. If Twitter had been around then it would have been probably as bad and escalated much quicker.

    Here's a long (but interesting) documentary about the incident. Bartman isn't in it for obvious reasons, but it's worth seeing.

    I had completely forgotten the Bartman ball was sold for $100,000, and then blown up.

    Cubbie fans and their curses... ever considered that maybe your team just consistently sucks?

    The Cubs still could have won that series.

    They failed.

    The fact that Cubs fans blame Bartman for that loss speaks volumes for their baseball acumen. What a bunch of maroons.

    Biggest case of piling on I'd ever seen.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    A good read.


    Ten years later, Cubs’ loss in 2003 NLCS is still not Steve Bartman’s fault.

    Alex Gonzalez owes Steve Bartman a steak dinner or a trip to Hawaii or his career earnings...

    1) Gonzalez should have made the play before Bartman even had chance to interfere.
    2) Cubs still had Game 7 the next day.
    3) Alou reached into the stands, it wasn't him reaching out. In fact in the ESPN documentary Alou says that after watching the replay he doesn't think he could have caught it anyways.

    For Cubs fans to blame Bartman is just sad. His life as he knew it was ruined.
