For my money, the greatest marriage of superstition, comedy and tragedy in the history of professional baseball.He was a diehard Cubs fan, the sort who listens to the radio while at the game, and he had one of the best seats in the house. The Cubs were on the verge of the World Series. It should've been the happiest moment of his life.
Today is the 10th anniversary of the Cubs' NLCS choke, helped along by Bartman deflecting a foul ball, with Moises Alou unknowingly bringing the wrath of a city down on the poor guy. He almost immediately went into hiding, and now belongs more to the realm of myth.
