Wrigley Field Fans Boo Beleaguered BP

Today when sports fans in Chicago have a great reason to celebrate there are a segment of sports fans who find something negative!
Chicago - Fans at Wrigley Field let out loud boos when the BP Crosstown Cup was presented Friday afternoon before the Chicago Cubs game against the White Sox.

BP, which is under fire for its handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, just became a sponsor of the traditional Crosstown Classic series between the Cubs and Sox.

Fans say when the cup came out before the game people started yelling and booing.

The cup goes to the winner of the crosstown series or the team that wins the final game if there's a split out of the six games played.

Both teams sent out press releases Friday saying they plan to stay with BP as the sponsor but promotions during the games have been scaled back.
You know I haven't exactly been following this disaster, but from what I do know my finger isn't only pointed at BP. My finger is pointed at our government! BP isn't the only one we should be booing!
