Zapolski told The Daily Caller he snuck in with fake media credentials because he’s “simply a broke college student who could not miss the chance of watching the Cubs play in the World Series.”
He claims he was threatened with two felony charges but the Cubs security backed off when they heard he was a big fan and that he “told them that the Cubs’ organization likely would not be to happy when they heard some random 18 year old snuck in and even worked security at the player’s entrance, they quickly changed their minds and just let me leave.” (SLIDESHOW: These Barely Clothed Women Love Baseball)
He explained how his plan went down the drain in an exclusive never before heard interview with The Daily Caller.
He released the following statement to TheDC:
Well when I was walking outside the stadium I went up to a gate and some guy asked me “Are you with Monterro security?”I said yes and then he asked why I was dressed in a suit and I said that I was told business casual. He then asked me who my manager was and after I didn’t say anything he said “Is it Brandon?”. I said “that’s him” and he took me to Brandon who was some Jamaican dude who led me inside the stadium and when he asked why he’s never seen me I told him it was my first day. He then said I had to fill out some tax information so for about 30 mins I had to fill out some direct deposit and tax sheets. Then I was given a jacket and was given my post at the player’s entrance. I was being goofy the entire time and was making the players/media who came through laugh so they kept commenting on how I was doing such a great job.What got me in trouble is I kept taking pictures with players and a manager saw me (I had no idea who were the managers were). Then all the bosses came up to me and kept asking how I got employed and everything and I must have lied well enough for them to believe me because they told me to go back to work, But I guess another person must have complained about pictures because they said they got another complaint about pictures and had to send me home for the day. They started to escort me out but I made a last attempt effort to stay by asking to go to the bathroom, where I waited in a stall for over an hour trying to wait them out. Eventually four different security people came in and nearly broke down the door trying to get to me. At that point I came out and I was searched for over 15 minutes in the bathroom.
Absolutely legendary. There’s no other way to explain his actions. Well done Luke, well done indeed.
