Overheard on Clark Street…

…in Wrigleyville on Cinco de Mayo and after a Cubs game:Woman on cell phone: “We should totally come down here one day–when we are sober–and just watch people.”

    I was at the game yesterday and was forced to wait around outside for about an hour for someone to show up. The “fans”, after leaving the first round of bars, but before hitting the second one (Wrigley), were an absolute embarssment. I guess I have known forever that the game really was secondary, but I really, really witnessed it in all of its ugliness firsthand yesterday. “Win or Lose We Still Booze!”, “Shut Up and Drink Your Beer”, and all sorts of other “Official Bleacher Bum T-Shirts” were being worn or sold everywhere you looked, and I finally had to admit: Sox fans are right about us.

    Oh god. Last night, I was trying to go to a show at Improv Olympic, and a friend of mine had a car there, and parking was so impossible that we missed the show. Worse is coming out of the training center there on a Saturday game day, and getting picked up by various drunken middle-aged men. Flattered, but creeped OUT.

    Keep an eye out for a new Web site about urban eavesdropping…More on that soon.
