It’s nearly September, which is why both Cubs players and fans are in midseason form.
For the Cubs, that equates to them widening their lead for the NL Central crown — now extending it to four games over the Cardinals.
And for fans, it’s all about putting themselves in the middle of the game — doing whatever it takes to help influence the outcome and help their team win.
One particular Cubs fan did exactly that during Monday’s game at Wrigley Field, when he caught a foul ball in his beer cup, then chugged said beer.
It’s almost as if he had practiced that.
