What Would Jesus Do? Fire Dusty.


Funny and mildly scathing article in Slate about the hapless Cubs. OK, it’s just an excuse to post a “baseball Jesus” image. I know, I am shamelessly opportunistic.

Check it:
“The Cubs Savior
Chicago fans wait for their messiah. And wait, and wait …”

    I don’t think you’re qualified to call for Dusty’s firing, Nikkos, as a self-proclaimed non-sports fan. You haven’t suffered like others have. You haven’t watched the tiny window of opportunity slam shut with each passing injury to Wood and Prior since 2003. You haven’t been out in the bleachers getting drunk and watching LaTroy Hawkins blow saves with two outs in the ninth (or Ryan Dempster for that matter). Hell, you didn’t even like A.J. getting punched by Barrett; that was the only excitement that Cubs fans have had this season!

    Jesus, however, would fire Dusty immediately and who am I to disagree with the teachings of Jesus?

    We once had Jesus on our team. Remember what Bruce Sutter looked like with a beard? Not as tall though :)

    Ha, no offense, just riffin’ on the “savior/messiah” theme of the article- but that was an excellent rant!
