THE HUNT FOR BLUE OCTOBER: Soriano and Ugly Betty
The next several Cubs related posts will be collectively known as THE HUNT FOR BLUE OCTOBER. The focus will be on the 2008 team and the drive for the World Series.
First up is Alfonso Soriano, who many people already known is a bit of a douche nozzle.
Just within the past week, Deadspin released photos found on a 24-year old woman’s Facebook page that shows her canoodling with the married Soriano. The photos show Sori in a wife-beater (how appropriate!) surrounded by alcohol and smokes.
The question of his douchyness is less due to him cheating on his wife, which in itself is an unfortunate commonality among all MLB players and sports teams in general. The pure Cubs question is whether Soriano’s partying like this is on days off or game days? Is he dropping balls because he is hungover from dropping balls….in chicks mouths?
Tastless, yes. Unfortunate, yes. Unacceptable, yes.
This Cubs team is going to go down in history as one of the best of all time. The last thing we need is a controversy to draw attention away from the field. Sure, we can crucify Soriano and every other player who does the scummy thing like this, but wait until the season is over.
