The media still loves bringing this up, don't they?

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.

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.

You are correct, sir.

http://wrigleyworld.com/

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.

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.

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.
