I kid you not:

It was after his tenure with the Cubs that Jim opened a doughnut and pastry shop in Chicago and in Arizona. Many doughnuts had basbeball themed names. The "Dusty Baker" was a dark chocolate doughnut that came on a stick as a spoof on the man's love for toothpics. The "Soriano" was an overpriced small doughnut that delivered no flavor. The "Conseco" was an enormous doughnut as if it were on steroids.

I looked into it on the Wikipedia page. It appears to be vandalism from an anonymous user who has targeted Hendry in the past (on Wikipedia).

it's still up when I checked which amazes me because usually when I changed my hometown's wikipedia page to note it's plethora of methlabs it's usually changed within five minutes by somebody from Eastern Europe

Well, um... yeah.

I am very disappointed to note that Jim Hendry's Wikipedia entry has had all references to his doughnut shop days scrubbed.

Color me disappointed.

When is Brett Taylor going to get a Wikipedia page? That's what I want to know, so I can vandalize it, possibly.
