WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE LOCALS ALSO SEE IT? Milwaukee baseball fans have long viewed Cub supporters as drunken yobs. What, then, to make of an observation by WGN's Nick Digilio, a self-confessed Cub fan, that riding the Northwestern L at the same time the game ends is not a pleasant experience. I actually did hear a Chicagoan grousing, on the radio, about getting drunk simply from inhaling on the train, and suggesting that riders boarding at other stops head as far toward the front of the platform as possible, because the fans tend to cluster near the steps from street level.
