DAILY AMY: COLUMNIST COMPARES CHICAGO CUBS TO AMY WINEHOUSE

THE CHICAGO CUBS HAVE HAD PLENTY OF REASONS TO CELEBRATE IN 2008

Jay Mariotti is an idiot. The Chicago Sun Times sports columnist actually compared the Chicago Cubs baseball team to trainwreck singer Amy Winehouse yesterday.

Frankly, the Cubs are having a better year.

THE CUBS AREN’T LAYING DOWN FOR ANYONE THIS YEAR

So far, at 38-22, the Chicago Cubs have the best record in baseball. That’s the first time the Cubs have been this good this late since 1908. Coincidentally, that’s the last time the Cubs won the World Series. Maybe this really is “Next Year” for the Cubs.

 

Obviously, the Cubs haven’t won anything yet and there’s good reason for both fans and the media to remain skeptical. Nevertheless, Mariotti is a bit of an ass comparing the Cubs to Amy Winehouse. Here’s what he wrote:

“To predict a Cubs championship under any circumstance is like investing in the future of Amy Winehouse, who sings very well but could wander into a gutter in her underwear at any moment.”

 

Winehouse didn’t wander into any gutters yesterday but she did manage to pull out a bottle of Malibu Rum-on her way out of court. Winehouse spent a dry morning supporting her incarcerated huband at his drug trial. She started boozing as soon as she hit the street leaving the courtroom.
