I heard the Cubs signed him to a contract after the game cause at least the squirrel made it to 3rd base!

It took the grounds crew long enough to get out there. I thought we were going to sit and look at the squirrel all night.

I did find it odd that it took so long to get the grounds crew out there and then that they only sent out 2 guys, one holding a towel and one with nothing in his hands.

They were too busy laughing at Ozuna. Ozuna looked like he was scared to death of that thing.

The Sox Park squirrel has a cousin back in London that ran on the pitch last month right in the middle of the Arsenal v. Villarreal Champions League semi-final match at Highbury Stadium...

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/41580000/jpg/_41580592_squirrel203.jpg

Now, the joke amongst Arsenal supporters is that the Highbury squirrel has more Champions League experience than anybody playing for Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal's North London rivals.

I don't know about that, but I was right by Dye and he looked like he was a bit afraid of the Seagulls that got really close to him.

the squirrel left the stadium, got on a plane from O'Hare to Miami, went to Pro Players Staduim (if thats still the name), rounded third and bowled over Barrett. Barrett then tried to punch the little guy, but he just bit him and gave him rabies. Barrett now has only 3 days to live.

Squirrels can't carry rabies. That's a myth.

This calls for a discussion for most memorable animal invasions during a baseball game:

-bird exploding from Randy Johnson's heater
-CF years back (forgot his name) killing a bird with a flyball then getting arrested for it afterwards (those wacky Canucks!)
-Andy Van Slyke swallowing a giant moth while running down a line drive
-squirrel attacking Pablo Ozuna
-30 some years ago, Astros bullpen having to scramble because a raccoon came out of no where and started lunging at them

Hawk said they could, so who are you going to believe.

My question is why did they have to stop play because a squirrel is on the field. Ball bounces off the squirrel into the stands - ground rule double.

After he ran under the tarp, it looked like he jumped in the stands judging by the reaction of the fans sitting there.

Forgot the classic case of the kitten at the Kingdome. Took 10 minutes to get that little bugger and he bit the guy who picked him up. The guy did a 3-rotation pirouette and launched that sucker.

And, then-Yankee Dave Winfield killing a seagull with a throw home.

I was too, as was everyone else at the COTC event that I was aware of. It didn't agree too much with this stomach flu I've been contending with for the past few days. But, I couldn't help it. I haven't seen anything that funny at a game! Chalk that up on my list of "things to see at a sporting event."

I believe the squirrel was arrested and booked by the Chicago Police Department for trespassing, then released on bail. From here on out, whenever that squirrel gets into any kind of trouble anywhere, Tribco. will run with the story and find a way to connect it to the White Sox.


:knue
"Look, that squirrel knocking over & breaking that ladies' birdfeeder in Bronzeville IS news. He ran onto the field during a Sox game, and because of that, he will forever be linked to the White Sox. There's no way around it. We will continue to report any future mis-steps by this squirrel in the same manner, and reference the fact that he did run onto the field DURING A WHITE SOX GAME ! That was an un-precedented event in sports history, seen by many people around the country."

I remember watching some old top 10 show on FSN, and they had some guy on commenting on that, he said "You know, It didn't really look like he hit the bird with the ball, it looked like someone shoved an M-80 up the birds ass and let it fly." lol!

BP Prospectus says the probability is 96.4% bunting in that situation is the wrong decision. BP Prospectus has also picked the Oakland A's to win the World Series since they came on line several years ago.

A broken clock is correct two more times than BP Prospectus on any given day.
