CHICAGO - The infamous baseball that may have cost the Chicago Cubs its first trip to the World Series in 58 years was blown up Thursday night. All that remained of the ball was a heap of thread after it was exploded inside a clear protective case by a Hollywood special effects expert. The stunt was shown live on television from inside a tent at Harry Caray's Restaurant. Loyal Cubs fans watched as the baseball many blame for the team's playoff failure was destroyed. Some fans wore replicas of the thick, black framed glasses worn by Caray, the famous Cubs' broadcaster.
They held up a beer to toast the man, who died in 1998, and sang "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" just before the ball was demolished.
Well guess what city of Chicago? Your team still SUCKS.
