The Worst News for Chicagoans Since Mariotti Was Hired by "Around the Horn"

Here we find news that the ChiSox have inexplicably re-upped The Hawk through 2011. The CDC recommends that humans only be exposed to 3-4 PPM of The Hawk, so a major health advisory has been issued for the entire Illinois area, and for everyone with XM Radio.

We also find this nugget of wisdom about the man with the worst HR call in baseball:

When Harrelson signed his previous contract in 2003, he predicted the Sox were in line to win a World Series. His vision was confirmed in 2005.

2003 ChiSox / 2005 ChiSox:

C. Olivo / Pierzynski
1B. Konerko / Konerko
2B. Jimenez / Iguchi
3B. Crede / Crede
SS. Valentin / Uribe
LF. Lee / Podsednik
CF. Everett / Rowand
RF. Ordonez / Dye
DH. Big Hurt / Everett

P. Buehrle / Buehrle
P. Colon / Garcia
P. Loaiza / Contreras
P. Garland / Garland
P. Wright / El Duque

CL. Gordon / Hermanson-Jenks
RP. Marte / Marte
RP. Koch / Politte
RP. Wunsch / Cotts
RP. White / Vizcaino

Reserves:

R. Alomar / Ozuna
Graffanino / Perez
S. Alomar / Widger
Harris / Harris
Rowand / Big Hurt
Daubach / Blum
Rios / Gload

Manager:

Manuel / Crazybones

The Hawk sure was prescient, foretelling all of those trades and signings that would lead to the WS in 2005, wuddn't he?

There's also this:

"As long as I love it and have a purpose, I'm going to be there," Harrelson said.

Which is why he retired in 1977.
