Steve Bartman

Please just leave the guy alone. I get that we want to cleanse our guilt (although I for one, never blamed the guy), but he doesn't want any part of it, despite a grass-roots push to get him to Wrigley to throw out the first pitch. His spokesperson is Frank Murtha...

“Steve is cheering for the Cubs and continues to be a Cubs fan. He just wants everybody, moving forward, to respect his privacy and let his life continue to unfold as the grand plan has it. Unimpeded by things that… have been blown out of proportion. I think that’s the message. It’s not necessarily a new one,” Frank Murtha told USA Today.

Get it? Just leave him alone. If the Cubs win it all, he will be happy. Probably happier than most of us. But he really doesn't need to help the rest of Cubs nation alleviate their collective guilt.

Let's face it. It wasn't our finest moment. We have to live with that too.
