My own personal rule is to not boo the home team.
It's just negative energy, bad vibes, man.
Something happened after last year with the home crowd.
I think it's because Wrigley's now sold out, and the crowd isn't just bleacher bums any more.
The crowd now has money, they seem a little spoiled, they expect wins.
It feels more like a Phillie crowd, rather than a "Friendly Combines" crowd.
Corey Patterson is having a disastrous and public batting problem, and the stuff he says to the press indicates he doesn't want to be coached.
I would imagine that when you're a kid, the booing thing is confusing - how can it possibly help?
