About Bartman.....The guy that bought the ball said on D Patrick show a while back that he felt really bad for Bartman and really wanted him to come to the explosion to be a part of the ceremonies. He said he wanted to help Bartman back into the Cub Nation or whatever.

Also he said that Bartman has received like thousand of dollars worth of gifts and money from Marlins fans and Bartman has donated every bit of it to the Ernie Banks Foundation.

Pretty cool I thought.

That's a great point. ;-D

Special effects guy going to destroy it huh? That should be very interesting to see.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I have a Tony Gwynn signed ball here, and I just fed it a Twinkie®. (you Wrigley fans in RF will get that one)


For charity of course. ;-7

alex gonzalez doesn't turn that double play. The ball was a chopper and slowly hit. If he does get 1 out it may have changed the momentum for the Cubs and maybe escape that inning with that amount of runs but i doubt it.
