That Kid Has His Father's Eyes. In His Playpen.

evil_muppets.jpgI have a rule. Whenever a story starts out with the phrase, "An alcohol-fueled argument that started about baseball at a 2-year-old's birthday party ended with a 32-year-old White Sox fan losing his right eye," I'm going to read the rest of the story. Call me crazy, but a man's gotta have a code.

Yes, this past weekend in the bucolic Chicago suburb of Huntley, a Sox fan and Cubs fans got into it at a child's party and things got real ugly, real fast.

The men attacked Robert Steele of Gurnee about 10:45 p.m. July 19 at a party at Jerry Czapla's house in the 10900 block of Cape Cod Lane, Fulton said.

Steele's nose and orbital bone were broken and he lost his right eye in the attack after he was kicked in the face with a steel-toed boot.

Steele and his fiancée, April Bieze, said they went to the Abby Cadabby-Sesame Street-themed party that afternoon for Bieze's 2-year-old niece. Bob Czapla and the other men were drinking vodka and beer and started taunting Steele with claims that White Sox fans had missing teeth, Bieze said.

Sesame Street? Non-sensical vodka fueled taunts about dental acumen? I never get invited to the good parties. Mr. Steele is rather messed up. He needs to be fitted for a glass eye and will undergo months of physical therapy. Sounds to me like this Sox fan is getting a little taste of what it's like to be a Cubs pitcher.

reminds me of the duke's of hazard party i had when i was 3. Great concept Mom! Let's have a child's theme party based on moonshine bootleggers. What could possible go wrong?

ps: who has a 2 year old's birthday party at 10:45pm!?!

"claims that White Sox fans had missing teeth"
I would call that an accurate discription.

What's with the Cubs fans having two "hated rivals"? First it was the Brewers yesterday and now the White Sox today. They need to concentrate all their hate onto one team; otherwise their hate will be spread too thin. Haven't they ever read a history book about WWII or played Risk?

Its all fun and games until you go on a meth and alcohol fueled rampage and put someone's eye out.

MLB will take advantage of this by offering officially licensed eye patches.

It was the Cubs fans not the White Sox fans who went crazy so it was a COKE and alcohol fueled rampage not a meth and alcohol fueled rampage.

Sorry

I saw ESPN branded reading glasses at Rite Aid this weekend. The MLB eye patches are likely on their way.

I have a rule, too, CTC. Nothing good has ever come from a human whose last name begins with Cz.

@ bc twins

2 hated rivals? try 3...wait 4....no...5...fuck it...31 hated rivals

Given their acts of violence when spread too thin, I imagine all of their hate directed towards one team would shift the time/space parallel as we know it.

31? They must hate themselves.... twice

You left out the part that said they were charged with "mob activities." So yeah, Polish Mobsters beat up a guy.

In other news, I made Sloppy Joe Casserole last night and just ate leftovers. Yes, it's as fattening and delicious as it sounds.

@ bc twins

wouldnt you?

So, the day after the Cubs beat C.C. Sabathia in a terrific game with playoff implications, the only mention of them on either WoW or Deadspin is a fight @ a birthday party?

Leitch is even more powerful than Buzz & I feared.

Bartman is gonna have to reel this rage in at some point.

You'd think a Cubs fan would take his own sight so as to miss seeing the inevitable implosion forthcoming.

Goddammitt! The first rule of Sesame Street Fight Club for Cubs Fans is to not talk about Sesame Street Fight Club for Cubs Fans! Someone obviously forgot this rule. It was probably that fuckface, Grover.

Stay classy, Chicago.
