I don't know if anyone heard, but the Haray Caray's restaurant that exploded the "Bartman Ball", is now doing something else to break the curse. Get this, they are taking the shreds of the ball, soaking them in Budweiser, and putting them in spaghetti sauce. Then a lucky idiot can order the $12 spaghetti with shreds of a ball in the sauce.

WOW, WOW, WOW. IDIOTS

Can we get something straight once and for all time? I NEVER want to be put in the same classification as these morons.

Harry has to be rolling over in his grave.....

DePorter plans to drown the remains of the ball, which was not fully destroyed last year, in Budweiser beer and then combine it with other ingredients to produce a special spaghetti sauce. "The sauce, the suggestion of two Cubs fans, will be poured over pasta and served from February 21-24," DePorter told Sneed. That's the date of the seventh annual worldwide toast to legendary Cubs announcer Harry Caray, who claimed he drank 73,000 cans of beer in his lifetime.

Watching NBC with Michael Sneed on...she called them "The losing Cubs" (I am sure that was a mess up though).

And then she and the other two goofs mentioned that "AT least it is going to a good cause" at least 5 times when Sneed was done talking about it.

I don't care that it is going to a good cause, they are idiots.

What type of dye is used to make the stiching red?

Geez, just when I think these people can't get any more retarded, they go and prove me wrong. This one doesn't even make sense. As stupid as it was I can at least see some logic in destroying the thing that is supposedly "cursing" you, but eating it? I'm no witch doctor, but if I really believed something was cursing me, the last thing I'd want to do would be eat it. That seems like it would be Voodoo Rule #1.

THE CURSE AT LAST IS BROKEN!

special to the Sun-Times

Grant DeDorker, owner of "Harry's Not Dead Yet" Restaurant, has at last pulled
off the ultimate curse cure. First, he blew up the Bartman Ball. Then he fed it
to his customers. Last night, he took the curse-breaking to its logical conclu-
sion: He blew up Steve Bartman, then saved the ashes for his customers. Loyal, die hard Cubbie fans now have a choice of Fettucine Alfredo or Fettucine Bartman.

The Blow Up Bartman ceremony began with people assembling together, all
dressed in black cloaks and masks. DeDorker came out dressed in a bright red
cloak and a gold mask. He sang in backwards Rumanian (as did a second man,
Jay Mariotti) while Bartman was brought out. Mr. Bartman was nailed to a
cross, and was wearing only a loincloth, plus the Cubs cap and headphones
that he was wearing on that fateful night that he reached into the air and
deflected the fateful foul ball, an act which broke the heart of this great
nation. He was set in the middle of the floor, then the cross was set on fire.
The crowd sang "Na Na Na Na" while Bartman screamed in agony. It was all
over in a few minutes.

"That'll teach him never to reach for a foul ball!" said Harry Drunkenslob, a
sports radio host on AM 1000. He said it with an evil gleam in his eye.

Jay Mariotti, when asked about the rightness of murdering Bartman, said
"Who cares? Who'll miss him? He's a goof, a jerk, and an idiot. I'll bet he
never even got laid in his life. I've said as much in my first column about
this back when my Cubbies lost, no thanks to him. Well, now he's gone
and the Cubbie curse is lifted. Of that I have no doubt."

DeDorker, when he was asked the same question, replied, "I know it was a
dumb thing to do. But hey. I did it for charity. All the proceeds are being
donated to the 'Stop Me Before I Do Any More Insanely Stupid Things' Fund."

We in the Chicago Media don't condone murder, but it was Bartman after all.
The proceeds are also going to charity, which is something bitter, angry,
resentful White Sox fans who don't have their own fans to burn (they prefer
1st base coaches, snicker snicker) don't want to hear. And if it breaks the
Cubbie Curse, we ask, "why not?"
