Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is reported to be watching the Chicago Cubs playoff run from behind bars. He was known for taking in Cubs games while in office.
The news comes from a Channel 5 report of a letter from Blago to his daughter Amy. He is said to have "a lifelong dream of mine to see the Cubs in the World Series." Join the club.
The Cubs trail the New York Mets, as the playoff series returns Tuesday night. Many are paying hundreds of dollars a seat to see if the Cubs can rebound. No doubt the value of a seat is not lost on Blagojevich.
I guess this means they have cable television in prison. He should enjoy the view.
With all due respect to our local media, I would suggest that Blago be the furthest person from our minds when the Cubs take the field this week. The Cubs, not he, deserve our attention.
