Quote of the Day: Rod Blagojevich

I said to my daughter Amy, I said, ‘we’re five outs away from seeing something that very few people sitting in this ballpark have ever seen, and that is the Cubs actually going to the World Series.’ As soon as I said that, (Luis) Castilla hit that foul ball, (Moises) Alou goes up to get it, and, it turns out, we learned later his name was Steve Bartman, he interfered with the ball. I was sitting in box seats at the time and, by the way, I paid for those tickets myself.

-- Rod Blagojevich, simultaneously reminding Cubs fans of their worst baseball memory and the fact that their last governor was so corrupt that he has to specifically point out that he didn’t receive playoff tickets via graft.
