I had not been to a Cubs-Sox game since Cub Killer Jose Valentin hit a walkoff home run off even bigger Cub Killer Antonio Alfonseca TEN YEARS ago. Good lord, we’re all old now. Almost a decade later, I found myself back in U.S. Cellular Field last night.
Before you didn’t watch A.J. Pierzynski cheat the White Sox into the 2005 World Series, there was probably already something in your gut that made you hate him. Your gut was absolutely right. The nicest thing that fellow asshole Ozzie Guillen could say about Pierzynski is, “If you play against him, you hate him. If you play with him, you hate him a little less.” For one thing, I didn’t know assholes could smell their own.

Plus, the overweight female population alone has kept XXL Konerko jerseys in huge demand. His fans’ jerseys, however, aren’t the only thing XXL about Konerko’s career. The first baseman’s career numbers against the Cubs earned him the 20th spot on the Top 79 Cub Killers of My Time.

WHY WON’T THE CUBS TRADE FOR ADAM DUNN??? WHAT TIME IS THE GAME ON JUNE 23RD??? But this week’s Muskbox accomplishes a […]
