Breaking News: Cubs Not as Impressive as Hockey Team

John McDonough left the Cubs today to become team president of some hockey team named the Blackhawks. You can read the official press release here.

Here's what I wanna know. What kind of voodoo magic did the Hawks work to get someone to leave a team that he's worked with for 24 years and is one of the most popular sports teams in the country to go work in the stinking pile of refuse that is the Blackhawks? We almost had a World Series John, and you played a big part in that. Why the hell would you want to leave?

"...the opportunity that Rocky presented to me -- and this came together rather quickly -- was something I was quite impressed with."

More impressive than the Cubs? Whatever. We don't need you John. Lou can be the manager and the president, and then that's one less last name that I have to double check to make sure I spelled right. Good riddance.
