I’ve never been. What is your beef with it?
Pretty much everything, starting with my disdain for Cubs fans. But that's just me and probably a function of living here for 35 years. I'm glad that people enjoyed it, and I'm glad that the Sox don't play there often. I'm happy to see them play the White Sox every year, at a very average ballpark, but for me, a far better experience.

Fair. Cubs fans def. rubbed me the wrong way in 2016.

Everyone that I came across was very friendly.

From an OPED by Studs Terkel, in the NYT:
many Cubs fans today are from the suburbs, brought in by buses. It's like going to an air show or "Cats" -- something tourists do. After the game, you ask them: "Who did the Cubs play? What was the score?" They shake their heads. It's not about baseball, it's about having been to a place to be.
