WRIGLEY FIELD—Sources report that Mudville, Illinois native Jim Casey was escorted out of the Cubs game last Thursday afternoon, due to generally drunken belligerence.
Stadium officials said that Casey was buying some peanuts and Crackerjack, and was also involved in an altercation with a Tigers fan. Casey was harassing the visiting fan, telling him to “root, root, root for the home team,” despite the fan’s clear allegiance to Detroit.
Security was called shortly after, and it was discovered that this was Casey’s third alcohol-related incident at Wrigley Field. He was thus banned from the stadium for life following the “one, two, three strikes you’re out” policy. Casey stated that he would not care if he never attended another old ballgame, and included several unprintable slurs as well.
