Cubs fans don't throw beers
On opposing outfielders
This guy's just a jerk
If you watched tonight's game you saw the despicable incident when someone in the bleacher's threw a beer on Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino. Unfortunately, Wrigley security initially tossed out the wrong guy - they ejected someone who was taunting Victorino after the jackass a few seats over had tossed the beer. On Twitter, @Adambuckled reported that he had sent a text message to Cubs Security who said they'd try to get the right guy. Hopefully they did. (Apparently they did not - see update below)
But, since ChicagoNow has given me this soapbox, I'm posting this picture so everyone will know what a jackass looks like. If you see him on the street let him know what you think of him.
And be sure to make it clear that real Cubs fans do NOT support this kind of behavior.

UPDATE: Paul Sullivan reports on the Trib's Hardball blog that the beer thrower slithered out of Wrigley Field before security could catch him. Chicago Police will release a photo on Thursday hoping that Cubs fans can help identify him. But readers of Chicago Sports In Haiku have a head start.
UPDATE II: Some comments questioned whether I had identified the right guy. Now there's video proof that the guy who was ejected is not the beer thrower. I originally had a YouTube clip posted here, but it was taken down after complaints from MLB. Not to worry. You can still view the video at the Cubs website. If you pause it about 0:07 in you'll clearly see the guy who tossed his beer on Victorino.
Do you know this guy?
Then you should pick up the phone
And call the police!
