This guy's famous Cubs anthem got Ted Wulfers fired from performing at Sunday night's game.

Brewers fans don't take this pro-Cubs stuff lightly


When Chicago musician Ted Wulfers got fired from last night performance at Friday's Front Row Grill inside Miller Park, it wasn't because he was a bad singer. In fact, he's such a good singer that he's been invited to sing on multiple occasions in Milwaukee, including having a go at the national anthem earlier this season.

So why would Milwaukee can the guy on its big night?

He's a Cubs fan. Or, at least that's the impression Brewers fans get when sings Steve Goodman's "Go Cubs Go" to a crowd of disappointed Milwaukeeans.

The last time Wulfers appeared at Miller Park, he decided to do just that, singing the Cubs' fan song after a Chicago victory over the Brewers.

The locals, of course, weren't charmed and, apparently, unforgiving. Wulfers was "uninvited" to Sunday night's game last week, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Sounds like an attempt to make the Brewers look bad. Consider the source, a Chicago newspaper. If TGi Fridays and the Milwaukee Brewers dislike this man's music they don't have to invite him back. The fewer motives and less comfortable for Cubs fans to return, the better.

It's John Cuszak pretending to be Eddie Vedder in a Vince Vaughn movie.
