Go to Wrigley these days and you can’t help but notice the mix of fan garb draped over Cubs fans on Addison. But, a new fan trend is slowly creeping into the bleachers, Cuban and the Cubs tees are stopping to pop up here and there and curiosity is peaked.
Why look like everyone else at Wrigley?
Fans are always searching for new tee shirts that define them as a fan. Walk down Addison and you will see a plethora of Fukudome shirts, Lou shirts, anything and everything under the sun shirts, and of course, Cuban and the Cubs tees, which seem to be of peaking interest; fans supporting a potential owner?
Twice seen on TV during games, and perhaps even in an upcoming documentary about the last 100 years of the Cubs, Cuban and the Cubs tees are starting to invade Wrigley. This politico-socio-grassroots, whatever you call it, movement is raising eyebrows among Cubs fans everywhere, as far as NY and Texas. When was the last time you saw a potential ball club owners name on a tee shirt? That’s what I thought. So, what gives?
The influx of media seems to be educating sports fans; they want a say in what goes on in the front office, and they want to have influence in decisions that affect the future of their beloved team, and perhaps the only way to do that is to wear their support across their chest.
So, while the Cuban revolution in Chicago marches along, despite recent rumors of Mark Cuban not being considered in the bid to buy the Cubs, what else might we see in the stands of ball parks?
Jerry is Full of Bull – Chicago Bulls owner
Sell out Selig - Commissioner of Baseball
Can’t Stand Canning – Potential owner of the Cubs, minority owner of the Brewers
Stymied by Steinbrenner – owner of the Spankees (I mean Yankees)
