The box office stands lonely and forlorn.


The concourse is gated and filled with construction materials.

The vendors are trying to take advantage of good weather and unload the last of their wares before the weather turns for good.

The good weather and the Cubs unfortunate lack of participation in the playoffs, allows the bleacher expansion contractor to get a jump on the project and they are wasting no time. A large portion of the demolition work is completed and there were crews working this Saturday morning. The stadium seems abandoned, with the demolition and the lack of crowds. No flags or banners and the no tresspassing signs signal the Freindly Confines will be welcoming no visitors until next spring. An interesting observation was Wrigley Field empty with a backdrop of all the local Wrigleyville bars advertising the White Sox game tonight. Commericalism at its best/worst.

Agony and Ivy.

Join us in our spirited, good-natured ECONOMIC boycott of the Cubs. We all love our Cubs and can never stop being Cubs fans, but we can stop feeding so much of our hard-earned money to the cash hungry owners of the Cubs -- the Tribune Company. Read the September 8 newspaper article about our website in the Peoria Journal Star.

BoycottTheCubs.com is a website for Cubs fans who are fed up and have finally had enough. Check out our initiative at Boycott the Cubs. I'm sure you'll find our website highly entertaining, fun, and irreverent. And no, you don't ever have to stop loving and being a fan of the Cubs.

We have already provided a link to your website. Please provide a link back to us if you like our site.

Always loyal -- but enough is enough,
