3. You know, just think about it for a minute,
or at least try to.

A man who causes the cubs to lose is being hunted down by americans-including the choppers that surrounded his house on national tv.

Its saying that the american public is fucked up.

5. Yeah, that they care more about a fucking
baseball game than the destruction of their country by repuke wingnuts, or the fact that there are more homeless and hungry, with an especially alarming rise in homeless and hungry children, or that more people than ever before are without access to health care, or that millions have lost and will continue to lose their jobs with no end in sight, etc., etc., ad nauseam. But, NOOOOOOO, all Americans give a shit about is a fucking baseball game!

7. Bread and Circuses
isn't that what was promised the Romans to to distract them from the fact that their empire was crumbling?

Oh, the parallels....

6. Funny cartoon! BUT...
it pisses me off that America can get riled up about a stupid baseball game, but can't get upset about the pResident lying about war, ruining the New Deal, and generally fucking up the planet.

We Americans are a curious breed indeed.

9. This is sad...
Edited on Fri Oct-17-03 06:26 PM by liberalmuse
We have an unelected president who's lied repeatedly to get a war, is destroying the environment, looting the treasury and using our troops as fodder for oil, and this guy gets the death threats. This country is SO fucked up.

On edit: Should have read the replies before posting.

14. My heart truly goes out to that poor man

To compare an overly zealous baseball fan to Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden is beneath contempt.

IT'S A FUCKING BASEBALL GAME! IT'S NOT IMPORTANT! GET A FUCKING CLUE ALREADY!

Jesus Christ Almighty, if Americans aren't the stupidest bunch of people this planet has ever produced....

11. Not funny
a fan doing what 99.99% of other fans would have done is lumped in with two former US backed mass murderers. I dont think its fair whats being done to this guy. Why isnt Alex S Gonzalez, who is PAID handsomely to catch the ball up in that picture. It was his error that opened the floodgates.

19. I hope the intent of the cartoonist...
is to point out exactly what you just said.

12. I'm hoping he turns this around to his advantage
I heard that he will be on Letterman after the series. In a twisted way, this may turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to him.

13. I hope so.
I was thinking that he could do some incredibly humorous ads, as long as he can see past the nastiness and laugh at himself.

17. well
I don't think it is so much a slight at bartman as it is at the fact this poor guy's got to basically go into hiding. And it's a comment on that.

21. That's how I see it
and hopefully that's the case. I hope it's supposed to be an indictment of this whole stupid thing, since it appears to be an editorial cartoon.

22. He should grab hold of his 15 minutes
Come forward, apologize (even though he didn't do anything wrong) and become a minor media celebrity as the physical embodiement of the 'Curse'.

For this Halloween, I think I'm going to go as The Fan Bartman.

23. If this guy had gotten drunk
and killed somebody with his car on the way home, how many of his "outraged" co-fans would have given a shit? But what do we expect from a society in which seemingly EVERY pee-wee league team in every town has at least one parent who screams at his own kid for not making the catch or scoring the goal?
