Bartman still lives in Chicago, may attend a Cubs playoff game
Chicago's favorite human being, Steve Bartman, has been found alive and well in... wait for it... Chicago.
White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen's favorite "bundle of sticks," Chicago Sun-Times columnist Jay Mariotti, scribed a piece today about how Bartman remains in Chicago's midst.
Bartman lives and works in the city and is still a diehard Cubs fan. Bartman Family spokesperson Frank Murtha wouldn't deny that Bartman has been dared to attend a Cubs game since the infamous night of Oct. 14, 2003. He also wouldn't confirm or deny that Bartman has been back to Wrigley Field or that he'll attend a playoff game this postseason.
Tonight the Cubs begin their first postseason series since the 2003 season that many fans claim ended prematurely and undeservedly because of Bartman. Chicago's first home game of the series is Game 3, this Saturday.
This obviously bodes the question: Will Bartman actually show to a Cubs postseason game? Or is he such a diehard fan that somewhere, deep inside, believes he's part of the Cubs' curse and will just stay away... far away?
