Peas in a Pod

Sitting in the bleachers at Wrigley is the sports equivalent of the town hall protester.

A Chicago Cubs fan hit Phillies’ outfielder with a cup full of beer during last night’s game in Chicago.
The ugly incident came on an ugly night for the Cubs, who were losing another game when the fan doused Victorino as he was catching a fly ball.

In Chicago, you have Victorino being literally doused with beer as he tries to do his job for the team he represents. In town halls around the country, you have United States congressmen being figuratively soaked with beer while trying to do a job for the people of the United States, whom they represent.

Poor sportsmanship and sore losers abound.
