Wikipedia defines The “Bleacher Bums” as: a name given to fans, many of whom spend much of the day heckling, who sit in the bleacher section at Wrigley Field. Initially, the group was called “bums” because it referred to a group of fans who were at most games, and since those games were all day games, it was assumed they did not work.
We are a NEW GENERATION OF BLEACHER BUMS!

We may or may not be in a long-term relationship.
WE ARE THE CUBS.
