FWIW, I'm 99.9% sure that Kevin Kaduk, the editor of Big League Stew, is a White Sox fan

From a quick read, I gather the writer, as many fans on this site, has absolutely no use for these two thugs. No one wants to think about it, but it happened and we can only condemn this type of horrible behavior. But I didn't see in this story that is a reflection of the average Sox fan.

But why do we have to observe "anniversaries?"

We damned well don't have to observe them in the main forum on this site, that's for freaking sure.

Feel free to roadhouse this thread if you desire, I stuffed it in WTS for now. **** Yahoo and **** William Lique.

So post a link to it on WSI so more people can click on it?

It's also disgusting to me that the kid would brag about attacking a 54 year-old man from behind with his father. Real winners those Ligues.

Maybe the media should also celebrate the anniversary of the guy making obscene gestures on camera at Wrigley Monday night. Classy, those cub fans are!

The incident is on Deadspin, but too vulgar to be linked here.

A huge Cubs fan, I thought. If this is the guy who wrote Wrigleyworld.

Please, the clicks it will get from WSI will not compare to the clicks it will get from the obscure website Yahoo.

Who cares if they bring this story up? You know next October will be 2 or 3 WEEKS worth of Steve Bartman talk; being the 10th anniversary and all.

You are correct, sir.

There are also quotes for other books attributed to him; they name him as the author of Wrigleyworld and the blogger for Big League Stew.

Oh, I wouldn't mind seeing clips of that inning over and over again.

Hmm.. 10 years with no repeat incidents. Maybe the Sox would entertain removing the upper deck ticket restrictions.

I have absolutely no proof to support this, but I think that was just used as an excuse. I think they close off the upper deck access to keep the outfield concourse from becoming a complete ****show and getting dangerously overcrowded.

He said next October, not this October, I assumed that to mean 2013.

Anyway, since you won the bet, what did you make your brother-in-law do?

We don't have to, but by nature, we do, especially anniversaries with round numbers.

This is an awful memory, but I don't think we should forget it. In doing so, we Sox fans should continue to do what we have done: Condemn these thugs for an inexcusable action, don't buy their fake remorse (what little this was and how shortlived it was), and emphasize that this in no represents the type of fans and people we are.

One of my favorite "Cubune" posts ever!

We need to reinvent that posting style. I know not the same without the Trib owning the Cubs, but those biases die hard, like on Monday when after beating the Tigers, it's all Cub talk on "Cubune Live" on CSN.

You noticed that too? Disgusting! But it enables up to keep that chip on our shoulder, so I'm fine with it. :D:
