Cubs beer-thrower turns himself in

He's 21 years old. At least we know that beer was bought legally. From the Tribune...

"The 21-year-old Cubs fan who threw a beer on a Phillies outfielder said Friday that he got caught up in the "heat of the moment" and hoped his actions would not taint the Cubs' image.

"I am a true fan. I love the Cubs," Johnny Macchione, of Bartlett told the Tribune Friday.

He said his decision to throw the beer on Shane Victorino Wednesday night was not premeditated or encouraged by his friends. He partly blamed the move on frustration for how the Cubs were playing in the eventual 12-5 loss."

Let's keep it in perspective. It's not like he and his dad ran onto the field to beat up a first base coach.
