Road Trip Stories

How about good Cubs road trip stories to opposing parks? I'll start.

My roommate, a St Louis native and huge cardinals fan, took myself and another cubs fan friend down to the lou during Busch's last year. It was ridiculously hot, over 100 degrees after the sun went down. We had good seats in right field, but almost didnt make it through the first inning it was sooo hot. Prior started the game and gave up 3 straight solo shots to start the game. Edmonds, Mabry, and I think Pujols but i cant be certain. My roommate starts getting all cocky and so on, like cards fans do, while the offense wasnt doing anything. Then in the 5th or 6th, Blanco steps up and cracks a 3 run bomb. Before we knew it we were in extras and we loaded up the bases for neifi, who hits a bullet into right for the game winner. I jumped and screamed like a little girl. I loved it. Suck it Busch.

My next would be the very next year at new Busch stadium. Took a booze bus down, we had a skybox (all we could drink!!) directly behind the right field foul pole. Went down to the field when the cubbies were taking BP, Rusch and some other bullpen guys were out shagging balls and JJ was at the plate. I was rocking my pinstripes as usual, and surrounded by cards fans. Rusch waddled over and picked up a ball hit into the corner, saw me and flipped it over. Of course, I dropped and thank christ he tossed it again. It was the first ball I had ever gotten at a game, and Ive been to lots. Ill always have a soft spot for him cause of that. Anyway, Maddux was on the hill that day and we won. Somehow. A lot of classless a holes walked out flipping us off just for being cubs fans too. Jerks.

Last summer I went to Minneapolis for the Twins series. Boy they have some rude fans!!! I was sporting my pinstripes as well and man did the twins fans take notice!!! I was called every dirty name in the book, I was told to "Go back to Chicago" a countless number of times. An old lady at the Holiday Inn I was staying at saw me walking to my room and whispered to another lady that was with her "I wish all these Cubs Idiots would go home, this is our dome". To top it all off I had a heckler right behind me at Saturday's game and he yelled at Todd Walker for everything. Maybe Todd ran over his dog or stole the guys milk money in school, but what ever the reason was he sure hated Walker and heckled him the most.

Well we got smoked all three games that weekend but I didn't hang my head and I didn't let the Twinkie fans get to me. I ended up meeting a few nice ones at the hotel bar and got drunk with them and talked Baseball so it wasn't such a bad trip.

I remember that game well! I worked with a Cardinals fan. A bunch of us were going to a Cubs/Cards game the next month. So, as a friendly wager, we had a bet going on the series that you are talking about. If the Cubs won the Series, I would have had to wear his Albert Pujols jersey on the bus to Wrigley. Walk once around the perimeter of the park and then have my picture taken in the jersey in front of Harry's statue. Vice Versa for him. He would have had to wear my Todd Walker jersey on the bus...etc. We were both at work and watching the game on ESPN. The series was tied. I had that sick feeling in my stomach knowing I was going to have to wear a Cardinal's jersey...on a bus full of Cubs fans... and have proof of it in a picture. Then Neifi pulled through...and it was JUST fair! I jumped around like a schoolgirl! It was great. Yep...he wore my Todd Walker jersey on the bus (which is a two hour ride...)to Wrigley. We walked around Wrigley once and I got pictures!

That has to be my favorite homerun of all time. Not only was it a grand salami in extras, but just how it stuck in the fence there, beautiful.

There was an angel in the outfield that day knowing how it was going to severely emotionally scar me if I had to wear Cardinal red to a Cubs game. I tried not to gloat too much around my co-worker, because i knew it was just as hard on him to have to wear my Cubs jersey.... but gosh, was it fun!

It had to be an angel if Neifi pulled through.. I never minded him too much, but lets be honest, he was never our most clutch hitter.

Yea that's true, but at least it pulled it off there.

The whole Neifi situation is funny to me now but I really hated watching that guy play. What I have a hard time understanding is that there was big talk about Aram not hustling but let me tell you I seen Neifi in Cinci last year and if there is anyone that doesn't hustle on the field it is definatly him.
