Right, Steve Bartman botched an easy double play and then left Mark Prior in when he couldn't hit the strike zone if he walked the ball from the mound to the plate and handed it to the catcher and thought he could get out of the inning as the wheels were coming off the defense and he was totally gassed.  Yep, totally Bartman's fault.

Alex Gonzales has to be Steve Bartman's biggest fan - w/o him he'd be Leon Durham.

The Chicago Cubs issued a statement on Wednesday: "The Chicago Cubs are saddened to hear news of the untimely death of Maureen Oleskiewicz. We express our deepest sympathy to her family and friends. We will continue to keep her family in our thoughts and prayers do nothing and forget about this by the end of the week during this difficult time."

Hot dogs, IIRC, are the number one choking hazard of all foods. That's why I cut my kids' hot dogs into strips when they eat them.  Alcohol makes the choking risk even worse, too, and of course, hot dogs and beer go hand-in-hand at the ball park.  Sad story, though.

But, will Bartman (or AG for that matter) have the Buckner moment someday? I mean, even if they don't ever win, Cubs fans gotta eventually realize that it's almost a clone of the Buckner Boot - Game 6 and up 3-2, ridiculously craptastic reliever, epic derp by the manager, everything.

Do they still play the blues in Chicago when baseball season rolls around? When the snow melts away, do the Cubbies still play in the ivy-covered burial ground?

When I was a boy they were my pride and joy, but now they only bring fatigue to the home of the brave, the land of the free, and the doormat of the National League.

Apparently, it still needs to be repeated. If Bartman does not reach OVER the wall and interfere with the ball that Alou WOULD HAVE caught, there would then be TWO outs. The ump who was the closest blew the call. Hard to blame him as it is a tough one to make and umps rarely make it. Anyway, the delay and controversy changed the dynamic and momentum of the game, and with the pressure mounting, that's when Gonzales botches the play. Before that even happened, I knew the Cubs would lose the game and the series.

OH NOES!!! A momentum change!!! Let's get all retarded and forget how to play baseball!!  Think how bad it would have been if there was a rain delay. Oh the horror!

Oh, the poor professional ball playing millionaires couldn't handle the fact that a foul ball didn't get caught. Are you Moises Alou? I swear to god this kind of nonsense is why Cardinals fans are ten times the baseball fans Cubs fans are. Momentum. Give me a break. A gust of wind could have done the same thing. This is why I feel zero sympathy for the "fans" that turn out to that decaying shiathole outdoor yuppie beer garden year after year.

Metal: How the hell do you choke to death in front of a crowd of people?


I almost choked to death once.   What happened to me, and may have happened with her, is I thought I hadn't swallowed all the food 'right' and it was sort of stuck going down.  So I tried washing it down with some of my drink, losing precious time doing that.   After that didn't work, I thought I should try coughing it back up so I could at least breath again.   I then discovered that coughing was impossible.   Since I was sitting opposite of someone at the table I was lucky enough to be able to attract attention, and was saved by the Heimlich.

If she was facing forward along with everyone else, and she spent her last oxygen trying to fix the problem herself, no one would be looking at her at all.   It could be she passed out before she could turn and get anyone's attention.

It's not even fair to compare Bartman to Buckner. Bartman isn't on the field, and his life has probably been f*cked in a sense because of this. He didn't make an error, he was an obstruction who eventually became the scapegoat by a team of f*cking failures and chokers, not to mention (part of) a city.

Buckner, being a long-time player (who would've been remembered as one of those players who was a step below bottom-tier HOF material, which is pretty f*cking good... if not for that error), also had the skin to deal with the media and the public, to a degree at least. His profession demanded it, and he was more prepared for it.

I don't know if you're familiar with it, but the ESPN series "30 for 30" showcased Bartman: ESPN Films: 'Catching Hell'

it was very interesting.
