“All this has happened before, and all of it will happen again” — The Bartman Play Edition

18 Comments

The Bartman play was one-in-a-million.  Big, exciting game. Foul ball beyond third base. Cubs fielder poised to catch it and … the fan interferes. What are the odds of that ever happening again?

Actually: not too bad.  As they happened almost identically 19 years before.

Al Yellon of Bleed Cubbies Blue has the story and the video evidence. And, unless you’re a Cubs fan who simply can’t bear to think about the Bartman play, you’re gonna want to check it out.
