Cubs Always Beat White Sox – Um, But Then Go to Jail for It

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs will always be on top in Chicago. Whether it’s in fandom, ticket sales, market share, or general awesomeness, the Cubs are simply better than the White Sox.

Oh, and apparently Cubs fans kick White Sox fans’ asses.

A Cubs fan has been sentenced to 6 months in jail for helping to beat his White Sox fan brother-in-law so badly that he lost an eye.

Thirty-two-year-old Jaroslaw “Jerry” Czapla of Huntley was accused of beating Robert Steele after an argument at a children’s birthday party in July 2008.

Czapla pleaded guilty to felony mob action as part of a deal with McHenry County prosecutors.

He was also sentenced to two years of probation and a $500 fine. He must avoid alcohol until his probation ends.

Criminal charges are pending against his brother, and a third man is still at large.

Czapla briefly apologized to the judge at his sentencing. When the judge asked if he wanted to apologize to Steele, he glanced at him and said “Sorry” before sitting down. Chicago Breaking Sports.

The fight was big news back in 2008, and the truth is, we don’t mean to glorify physically pummeling a dude because he’s a Sox fan.

Unless it’s Michael Barrett whoopin’ on AJ Pierzynski. Then everybody wins.
