Oops - We Missed Carlos Zambrano Day

. Wednesday, September 17, 2008


"I hereby declare that snow cones are awesome"

Here at WAIW we pride ourselves on getting you the breaking stories no later than 1-2 days after they're relevant. This bastion of journalistic excellence has once again delivered. Turns out that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (literally a crazy person for you out-of-staters) declared September 16, 2008 to be Carlos Zambrano Day in our home state. It's no secret that the Albany Park native is a huge Cubs fan, but we'd kind of been hoping that he'd keep that on the DL, given that he's driving our state straight into the ground. This isn't a partisan thing - I just think that he's a colossal bag of douche who happens to have weatherman hair.


Not pictured: pitchforks and torches

Oh, and before we forget, the declaration of Carlos Zambrano day also included a provision that provides Rascal scooters and free butter pecan ice cream for seniors at the state's expense. Oopsy poopsy.


Zambrano responded to the news by screaming - nothing out of the ordinary

Happy belated Carlos Zambrano Day! I'm going to celebrate by going to Bed, Bath and Beyond and breaking shit while screaming in Spanish. It's what I think Z would do.
