Well there was a case of deja vu in Chicagoland last night as an overzealous fan reached into the field of play and interfered with a catch... this time in favor of the hometown team.
The fan, sans Cubs hat and headphones, reached in from his first row AllState Arena football seat situated at the 4 yard line and snatched the football away from the arms of an awaiting San Jose SaberCats receiver. (Interestingly enough we later learned it is actually legal for Arena football fans to actively participate in the action as such.)
Well the fan (who remains nameless... but who doesn't look to be Bartman**) not only served as an extra DB for his hometown team but he seems to have inspired the Chicago D as the Rush held the defending Arena Bowl champs to less than 50 points and picked off the visiting QB three times. ''Our defense did what they needed to do for us,'' noted Rush coach Mike Hohensee as the Rush even pounced on two fumbles coughed up by the Cats.
Speaking of running interference.... do you ever wondered what happend to Steve Bartman? So did he ever take then gov. Jeb Bush up on that offer to take furlow in Florida?
TheWadeblogs best bet is that is that Bartman is still on the lam perhaps hitching himself to a new team... to the team of players in the new "Knute Rockne Musical." The former domer accounting major would be raking it in if he is infact part of this gold mine of a production starring marquee names like Stef Tovar as Rockne, Starr Busby as Thelma, Ron Rains as Jimmy The Goat (???), and Brandon Dahlquist as George Gipp. This all-pro line up is gathered together in... now don't all rush there at once... the entertainment mecca known as Munster, Indiana.
Editor's Note - write in and let us know who that interfering fan is and theWadeblogs will send both the person providing the fan's name as well as fan with the hands both brand NEW Notre Dame "Official Shirts"
