I’m not sure who is dumb enough to pass up $25,000.00 at a time like this. Have you seen gas prices lately?
It has been nearly 5 years since Steve Bartman’s incident at Wrigley field, but apparently Bartman still feels his life is in danger. Bartman has decided to turn down the offer of $25,000 to autograph the infamous photo at The Nationals on July 31st. His family representative says, “It’s just another shameless commercial stunt”. Even if it is, the money that the autographed photo would have sold for would have been given to a Chicago based charity. The autograph was estimated to have been sold for $100,000.00.
Bartman, who has kept low profile since that fateful day, once turned down an offer “well into six figures” to simply appear in a Super Bowl commercial.
Well, I know that most people have moved on since he ruined the game for the Cubs, but I know people will now hate him again for being a coward.
Way to go, Steve.
