shame they have to sing god bless america instead of take me out to the ballgame, but i guess they gotta do what they can to force patriotism down our throats :no:

seriously.. i am so tired of that song.. yeah sept 11 was a big deal, but cant we just play baseball? we dont need to be reminded of it every 7th inning.. but at least they got someone to sing it live.. at the braves games on sundays they play this god awful version by kate smith.. at least they will play take me out to the ball game at wrigley tonight

not a great start for the cubs.. 3-0 marlins after ?

Steve Bartman, the fan who prevented moises alou from catching the foul ball last night, has apologized to the cubs fans

CHICAGO (AP)? The fan who played in a key role in the Chicago Cubs' collapse in Game 6 of the NL championship series apologized Wednesday, saying he was brokenhearted.

With the Cubs five outs from advancing to the World Series for the first time since 1945, Steve Bartman tried to grab a foul ball, preventing outfielder Moises Alou from catching it. That helped the Florida Marlins rally for an 8-3 victory to tie the NL championship series Tuesday night.

"I had my eyes glued on the approaching ball the entire time and was so caught up in the moment that I did not even see Moises Alou, much less that he may have had a play," Bartman said in a statement.

"Had I thought for one second that the ball was playable or had I seen Alou approaching, I would have done whatever I could to get out of the way and give Alou a chance to make the catch."

The 26-year-old Bartman was escorted by security guards from Wrigley Field after he was threatened by angry fans and pelted with debris.

Bartman apologized to Cubs fans everywhere, adding he was "truly sorry from the bottom of this Cubs fan's broken heart."

"I ask that Cub fans everywhere redirect the negative energy that has been vented towards my family, my friends, and myself into the usual positive support for our beloved team on their way to being National League champs," Bartman said
