Soxenfreude: Kenny Williams for a Day

Chicago Cubs

Just as we take joy in the foibles of the St. Louis Cardinals (“Scardenfreude”), I’d say it’s fair to also enjoy the misadventures of the ever-floundering Chicago White Sox.

To wit:

A Chicago man was arrested Monday for allegedly breaking into Chicago White Sox general manager Kenny Williams’ house.

Wayne L. Field III, 51, of the 900 block of West Lawrence Avenue was charged with residential burglary for allegedly unlawfully entering the house and taking several articles of clothing, a set of keys and jewelry.

Field apparently made himself at home. Police found him wearing Williams’ clothes and the GM’s 2005 World Series ring. He also apparently defrosted a lobster.

This incident occurred between Nov. 18 and 21 while Williams was out of town, police said.

Williams confirmed the incident and said the man drank his beer, ate frozen pizza, surfed the internet and kicked his shoes off on the bed. NBC Chicago.

Thankfully – and I mean that genuinely – the burglar was caught, and no serious harm occurred. But, since no serious harm occurred, I reckon it’s fair to chuckle about it now.

I can see Mr. Field now, strolling around Williams’ house, dressed to the nines…

“I’m Kenny Williams. I used to be thought of as a visionary, but now I hire guys with no experience to important positions. No matter. I’ll kick off my shoes and eat some lobster and stare at my 2005 World Series ring. I wonder what Jake Peavy is up to tonight? I should give him a call.”
