WATCH: Wrigley Field security guards take broom away from fan celebrating sweep


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — Remaining overbearing when it comes to cracking down on random objects being raised above a person's head, the Wrigley Field security team upped the ante on its war against "beer snakes" by confiscating a broom on Sunday. Following the Cubs' 7-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers, which resulted in a 3-game sweep, a middle-aged man in the stands had his celebration of the sweep cut short.

Waving a broom over his head in symbolic recognition of the Cubs pulling off a sweep, the Cubs fan caught the attention of two security guards, who moved swiftly to spoil the man's fun by taking the broom away. The Cubs franchise has come under fire this year for its no-nonsense approach to curtailing cup stacking in the bleachers, and a broom ban might be the next draconian policy to generate outrage at the ironically coined Friendly Confines.
