Get Bartman to Cubs wildcard game
$3,680 of $5,000 goal
If he cannot be found by time of the big game all the proceeds raised will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association.
This dude loves the cubs and baseball more than most of us. He probably paid a fortune for those seats. How many people do you know that love the game so much that they also LISTEN to it on the radio while they watch it live? This guy is a super fan. 25 other people were reaching for that ball and it happened to ruin HIS life. Let's pick him up in a stretch limo, give him a tour of the clubhouse, give him GREAT seats behind the plate (you know, where there is a huge net that stops balls from getting anywhere near him) and then let him throw out the first pitch... then in a magical turn of events, Moises Alou runs from the dugout and blocks the catcher from catching it. That would be awesome.
so it took me all of about 20 seconds to find this guy keque on facebook and all of about another 10 to see that keque hates the cubs, so screw this guy and his idea. If you want to donate to alzeiher's association, which is a wonderful idea, do it, but don't give the guy who set this up any satisfaction.
This poor guy was made a scape goat, no pun intended. He didn't make the error on the field. He didn't blow game 7. This is why I don't drink alcohol in excess at sporting events, because it turns you into an asshole. Real Cubs fans would never have blamed him. Where was Dusty Baker calling time, getting everyone in around the mound, telling Alou to shut up or he would come out of the game and telling everyone to take a deep breath? "Guys we are 5 outs away from the WS, relax. Forget about that last play. Let's focus on these last 5 outs. A ball is going to be hit your way, be ready." Why didn't that happen, because Dusty Baker was a mediocre manager who got lucky with a good 2003 team. I feel terrible for Bartman. I hope one day that he can show his face around even if the Cubs still aren't a WS winner. The poor guy shouldn't be the reason anyone with a brain sees as why the Cubs are still without the championship. It will happen very soon and he needs to know that sensible fans never blamed him. He is just a human being who reached for a ball and if any of you out there say you would not have done that, you are either lying or you are just stupid. I hope the Cubs win it this year for him. G-d knows he deserves it.
This shows why Cub fans are the biggest idiots in the world. You guys look for anyone and anything to blame for losing. No Moises Alou should not pay the whole thing Alex Gonzalez should because if it wasn't for Bartman, Gonzalez who blew a simple 6-4-3 double play on the very next hitter would be the most hated man in Chicago. But cub fans are too dumb to see that and couldn't wait to go after Bartman .
This is a horrible idea at the best and an unethical cash grab at the worst. Steve Bartman would never go to this game. He has avoided the public eye for over a decade and will continue to do so. This is not the narrative that this game or this team or this town needs. I don't believe in curses, but I believe in this team. What are you going to do with the money you raise when you realize that even if you found Steve Bartman he'd never agree to this?
Not all Cubs fans acted like asses and treated him poorly. The smarter fans know exactly why the Cubs lost the game -- Alex Gonzalez and Mark Prior. Moises Alou wasn't able to control his emotions and act like a professional so many jumped on the bandwagon and blamed the one person who had no control over the outcome of the game -- Steve Bartman. There are no such things as jinxes, curses, bad luck, etc. The only thing that controls the outcome of the game are the players on the field and the moves the manager makes. Real professionals would have risen to the occasion instead of caving to the emotional outburst of Alou and ridiculous "fans."
Go fund me should be used for medical reasons and serious illnesses and for people really need this is ridiculous I wouldn't give Bartman money if he was in need. This was probably set up by a pirate fan to see how gullible people are no way we don't need Bartman at our games
Anthony Shaffer, can you not read or just can't comprehend what you are reading? The description says "cub fans" that refers to people like you who like the cubs, too! They're like your buddies, your friends! Next it talks about making "amends". This is like apologizing after you stole your friends train set and pushed him down. As far as other teams being scared of the cubs...they have one good year and they are baseball gods? Fuck off you arrogant twat. I may take them more seriously if their ignorant ass fans didn't think they were baseball royalty all of a sudden. I hope they choke on cursed goat dick.
GoFundMe has had some stupid campaigns in the past and this is yet another one that has popped up on the radar. Seriously though, there is nothing that says the person who started this has to give any money to it's intended recipient. It's that way with any GoFundMe Campaign from what I understand in the TOS. Not sure why people continue to donate their hard earned money to these campaigns without no recourse to know if it was followed up on and executed the way it was intended to be used.
PLEASE DONATE THIS "TRYING TO GET ATTENTION" money to Anthony Rizzo's Family Foundation at : http://rizzo44.com/. On Nov 15, 2015, take the money and go to Anthony Rizzo's Fourth Annual Walk-Off for Cancer down in FL, rather than spending time setting up a GoFundMe Fundraiser so you can mock this guy. In 2003, Mr. Bartman didn't want 15 minutes of fame, but he's had 12 YEARS OF IT FROM IDIOTS LIKE YOU. He communicated minimally through the media. He didn't want any part of it. He was a guy in his 20's who lived in the Northern Suburbs or Chicago, and was even coaching a little league team If he had intentionally swatted the ball away from Alou, that'd be a different story. However, he did NOT INTERFERE ON PURPOSE. You think he would want to fly up to Wrigley Field? Then WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH HIM? THIS IS A TOTALLY SELF-CENTERED ACT. YOU WANT ATTENTION. Tracking down Steve Bartman has nothing to do with the 2015 Chicago Cubs Team, players, coaches, or staff. GET A LIFE.
So the cubs lost that game, so what? They still had another game in Miami.
I hope the Cubs win as well. Everyone loves a 100 year old underdog. However, instead of Bartman, how about donating to a charity directly, or giving a homeless person a nice meal, or to my classroom? http://www.donorschoose.org/project/please-dont-make-us-use-the-triple-beam/1649123/?timestamp=1444230475854&pma=true&pmaId=3047532&pmaHash=MMyLkdWJqTJA4fwDje69DQ%253D%253D&utm_swu=2879&rf=page-siteshare-2015-10-project-teacher_3047532#pm14154033 go Cubs!!!
What if Alz doesn't bagree to the money? Where does it go? And why give this poor guy death threats? You people are sick! Yes, I don't agree with what he did either, but GET OVER IT! If Alz doesn't agree, give it to the Cubs charity, and better yet, under Bartmanns name!
