I had to watch last

I had to watch last night's game in a bar in Georgia where everyone was a Marlins fan. Not fun. But, those of you who know me know that that wouldn't stop me from cheering just as loud as the rest of them! Too bad it had to end in a heartbreak. Soon after the game I received lots of sad (and intoxicated) phone calls from my pals in Chicago. They said everyone just walked around looking like their pet had just died. I lived there for 8 months and am by no means a native, but I loved every moment and my heart goes out to them all. One of my favorite times in Chicago was going to a game, sitting in the bleachers, and heading to the Cubby Bear afterwards for some libations.

I have to say though, I got in some arguments with my native friends last night. Everyone needs to back up off Steve Bartman. He DID NOT lose the game for them. They lost the game for them. He obviously was just acting on impulse, and I could totally see myself doing the same thing. When something is flying toward your face, you stick your hands in the air. You ALL would have done the same thing.

I know he's been receiving death threats. Even Governor Bush offered him asylum in Florida. Are you joking me? I understand the history. I understand the heartbreak. But people are more outraged at what this guy did than what President Clinton did with his cigar.

Rearrange your priorities, people!
