It’s been a while since the Cubs played a meaningful game in October. Their last trip to the postseason ended with a 3 game sweep in 2008 and in 2003 the Cubs famously collapsed despite being 5 outs away from the World Series.
But now it looks like Cubs nation is ready to repair a relationship that has been fractured ever since a fateful night back in ’03.
Apparently one Cubs fans has started a special GoFundMe page with the hopes of brining long-time scapegoat Steve Bartman to the Cubs first playoff game.
As you remember, Bartman was the fan who “interfered” with a foul ball during the top of the 8th inning during the Cubs last trip to the National League Championship Series in 2003. He hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
The page hopes to raise $5000 for Bartman to cover “flight, hotel room, a ticket to the game and a little spending money”.
