Cubs 7th Inning Stretch

Postby imblotto » Mon Jun 19, 2006 6:09 pm

I dont know if this is the correct forum for this, but anyways...

I was watching PTI and caught the end of them talking about the 7th inning stretch and Jeremy Piven said something nasty about the Cubs during "Take Me Out to the Ballgame".

Anyone know what he said?

I don't think we can say it here but there's a blurb at the OWNERS of the Cubs, a major media outlet, printed so it can't be that bad can it? It wasn't actually about the Cubs though...

I'm pretty sure myself and most of my fellow 2nd graders were talking like that in 1976. That was when punk rock was invented though, LOL... :-D

Chatting on the field before Sunday's Tigers-Cubs game, actor Jeremy Piven and Cubs marketing chief John McDonough discussed how Piven would incorporate his signature line into his singing of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game."

They came up with: "Hug it out, Cubs fans."


But Piven couldn't resist going nearly word-for-word with his line from HBO's "Entourage."

"Let's hug it out, you little ***Female Dogs***," he yelled to the crowd at Wrigley Field.

McDonough, while noting that Piven has been a loyal Cubs fan and friend to the team, was disappointed and issued an apology.

"I don't know if professional adrenaline took over, but we don't ever want to introduce profanity into the seventh-inning stretch," he said.

He's an actor in a lot of movies and most notably in HBO's Entourage.

I read the story, it wasn't anything nasty about the Cubs.
