Cubs Fans Freak Out After Jake Arrieta Spotted Riding His Bike Near Wrigley

If you believe a photo posted on Reddit, Jake Arrieta was seen riding his bike around Wrigleyville over the weekend by a cub fan with a quick hand and a camera.

The photo was posted on r/Cubs on Sunday, just one day before the Cub’s historically dominant Ace pitcher is set to take the mound in game 3 of the NLDS.

Fellow Cub fans were quick to comment on the photo, with most showing some serious concern about Jake’s safety precautions:

While it is still unconfirmed if the bearded bike rider is indeed Arrieta, one thing is for certain: Cubs fans are not taking any chances this October.

Cubs Fans Start GoFundMe For Steve Bartman

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”.
