Only crappy teams in the past say focus on the future, the past doesnt matter. The past doesnt matter to you because your past sucked. Btw I believe this was the first time the Brewers have ever won a season series agaisnt the Braves, correct me if im wrong though.

You're correct on the series thing, but wrong on your first comment. I could care less about your historied past. Where are you right now? Only people in love with themselves bring up the past all the time to try to win an argument on the whose team is better comment.

Right now we are better than the Brewers. If the Braves had any pitching and if Hudson actually had a good year then maybe we would be talking Wild Card. Things look a lot better next year with Smoltz and Wickman signed and people being healthy. I dont think I've ever used the past to say a team is better, unless the team has been consistaintly better for a long time compared to a team that has been consistantly bad for a long time. But I think if the Braves had the Brewers past and the Brewers had the Braves then im sure you would say the past does matter, just like I would be saying it doesnt.

Doubt it. Where we at in our little bet? My team crapped the bed so I may not make the 7 game deal. However, we are starting to win again.

The Cubs actually lead the overall series against the Cardinals 1,126-1,067 so how does it feel being a Cardinal fan and you can't even beat the worst team in baseball the last 100 years?? I know you are going to say look at the championships but Cub fans at least have something to brag about against the Cardinals.


I'll say it. Look at championships. That's all that matters.

Cubs fans can brag to Cards fans all they want about the record, while the Cardinals can just show off that bling.

Nobody should be allowed to use games that were played 80+ years before they were born in any current arguments. It's like saying the Packers are better than the Bears because they have more Super Bowls. Doesn't really hold weight when talking about today's teams. By the way, I have no idea what it would feel like being a Cardinals fan who can't beat the Cubs. I'm not a Cards fan, just a partisan bystander eating an Italian Beef and washing her down with an ice cold Miller Lite.

You are also someone who doesn't follow baseball that closely either because the Cubs have owned the Cards the last couple of years too.



I could give a flying f*ck about who wins a Cubs / Cards game. I'm just trying to say if I'm a fan of Team A who has had a pretty tight grip on the division for quite a while and I drive up to see my team play Team B who has struggled greatly over the past few seasons, I should be able to walk into a bar for some food and a drink without being hassled by Team B fans, half of whom didn't even attend the game. I don't care if if Team A had my number in 1912 or even if it had series lead on me for the year. These jackasses just get up and clap in there face when they're trying to get a beer. Say what you want, but I'm a Twins fan and when I was in Milwaukee in April to watch an interleague game, only one person talked shit to us the whole day and he ended up buying a round of beers for me and two friends, so he ended up cool.

I think true hatred for fans comes from life experiences or game experiences. For example, I could truly care less or argue with people about baseball and the teams they follow, until one day at Miller Park. I was there for the the 17 inning game in which Corey Patterson hit the homer off of Kieschnick to end it. In the 3rd inning (day game mind you) a woman in front of us in a Cubs jersey started harrassing what seemed to me to be a 12-13 yr old kid who was in a Brewers jersey. It got to the point where she was cuffed and stuffed and escorted out of the stadium. From that point on my experiences with Cubs fans at the Brewers games got even worse. They were drunk, obnoxious, overbearing, and outnumbered us 3-1 most times. I started dispising them more and more as the games went on (0-7 that year when I was there for the 2 series). I started generalizing my opinions on those fans and passed them on to every Cub fan I met until they proved otherwise.

Now I would never go and do what the fans in question did at the bar. That is really classless. It is a huge rivalry, and I know the same thing happens all the time with NY and Boston, but in this case, what point are they making? I also agree past championships and "bling" have no merit on current happenings. Who cares what you did in the past. When was the last time you won and how are you doing now. That is what it pretty much comes down to.

So what were we talking about?
