    Dave Sveum shot in hunting accident...by Robin Yount....

    http://espn.go.com/chicago/mlb/story...nting-accident

    "The bird was in front of him and I was about 50 yards up on a hill," Sveum said Tuesday at baseball's winter meetings. "He got the bird up and lost track of where I was. He pulled the trigger and was like, 'Uh, oh.' "
    Lol. It's got the cubs written all over it.

    He's lucky to be alive, frankly. This kind of stuff makes me sick.

    Maybe Sveum should have played a position other than SS. This is why Ernest Riles never goes hunting with Yount.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    I know the guy manages the Cubs but I'm not sure that's a reason to shoot him.

    No, but Dick Cheney was.

    This almost seems like a microcosm of that fail of a franchise.

    "It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt."

    I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.

    Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
    Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
    Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

    Trying to put him out of his misery?
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ďmy ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
