Remember the story about the classless drunken Cubs fans who knocked out the guy from Stallis after the Stallis guy threw a beer can at their bus in the Miller Park parking lot after a game this summer?
Looks like the two guys will be spending a little time at the ol' "House of Corrections" in Franklin for the next couple months.
The man who they beat down didn't sound like he had a pleasant rest of the summer because...well...he had to have his mouth wired shut for 5 weeks:
"It was torture," he told the court. "No barbecues or nothing."
Well anyway, justice is served. The two clowns will end up paying the full cost of the man's medical bills, and serve various times at the Franklin House of Corrections (albeit it will be on work release).
The best quote of the story though comes from the lawyer of one of the criminals:
"Perhaps it was seen as an attack on the Chicago Cubs," he replied, "which, in their intoxicated state, they felt they had to defend."
Nice rationalization sir. Not a physical attack on a person, not an attack of a player on their team...but an attack on the concept of the team, of what the team represents. They felt they had to defend "their team" by clocking some poor schmuck from the Stallis in his jaw.
