Cubs Playoff Run Will Be Bartman-Free
Who knew the Chicago Cubs' return to post-season play would usher in a new dawn of forgiveness?
And who would ever have thought that it would include Steve Bartman?
A group of their fans -- as opposed, surprisingly to Pirate or heated-rival Cardinal fans -- had raised $5000 to get his Cubbie-lovin' buns into a seat wherever the North Siders wind up playing.
No word as to whether the proposal included a glove or handcuffs.
And ten years after that fateful 2003 night, Bartman seems to realize that the memories still smolder:
So the dude's gonna remain outa sight, leaving only his imitators to carry on.
One can only hope that, one day, life imitates art.
But not all art.
