Cubs fan outs self.: So we're all doing the Bartman now.

Well stated on Bartman's part. And ditto the Gov. Blagovich. When all is said and done, it's a fucking game. Sure, most of the people blabbing about killing him and whatnot are full of it, but all it takes is one. This didn't sit well though: " In Florida, Gov. Jeb Bush said an offer of asylum to Bartman might be a good idea, and an oceanfront retreat in Pompano Beach offered him a free three-month stay if he needed to get out of Chicago." Seemed a bit opportunistic, and no, not just because it came from a Bush. Non-mefi readers may be interested to know that Waxy has a collection of photoshoppery regarding Bartman. Most are rather poorly done and not very original, but there are a couple of gems in there.

Sure, it's just a game. Doesn't change the fact that the guy is a fuckwit though.

I'm no fan of Gov. Bush, but I think his offer of asylum puts this controversy in the right light. It's just a fucking game. Any Cubs fan who threatened the guy with violence or harassed his family deserves to have his team lose in the most painful fashion possible for the next 50 years.

I'll disrupt any professional sporting event for 3 free months in a Florida resort.
