Cubs usher destroys beer cup pyramid, crushing fans’ spirits
A Wrigley Field usher committed one of the worst ballpark crimes imaginable, toppling an impressive beer cup pyramid. Fans toiled tirelessly to erect a beautiful feat of modern engineering only to have it knocked down by this fun-hating individual.
He has my vote for worst usher in MLB:
What a joke.
This guy deserves a lifetime ban from all 30 MLB ballparks. Furthermore, he should be discharged from the ushers union immediately if it does indeed exist.
What kind of cold-hearted man would do this? With all of the potential hooliganism to put a stop to at Wrigley field, this is what he chooses?
Plus, it’s not like the usher even did anything positive. All he did was make a huge mess of plastic cups scattered all over the place. Not exactly the most productive use of time.
You have to feel for the fans here, too. Just look at this guy’s face when he realizes what’s happening.
If I’m a custodian, I’m pissed I have to clean that up instead of a neatly stacked beer tower. He made the mess; he can clean it up his damn self.
I understand the stadium has policies to make sure fans don’t do anything too stupid, but I don’t see why those should apply in this case. There is zero harm in a well-constructed beer cup pyramid.
Beer cup shenanigans have long been a tradition amongst fans at Wrigley Field. Just look at this $43k cup snake they put together last year.
The games are long, and the fans are drunk. So let them have a bit of self-contained fun in the stands. It seemed like everyone in the section didn’t have a problem with it, so why not let it continue?
Now stadium staff has to deal with a bunch of drunk, newly annoyed fans with a shitload of plastic cups at their feet. If anything, that is the more considerable safety hazard. The lack of foresight here is absolutely maddening.
It’s clear this usher just wants to watch the world burn. He loved every second of the time he spent ruining the day of every person in that row.
Somebody needs to give this usher a hug, a beer, or both. He clearly needs it.
