This list is best enjoyed while drinking a tall glass of chocolate syrup.
I don’t know what’s more surprising, the fact that Wells is possibly only the third most irritating person in the sports world nicknamed ‘Boomer’ (see: Esiason, Berman) or that he actually thinks he can pitch successfully in the majors in 2008.
9. Ron Coomer
The last time Ron Coomer saw 90210 it was on his scale.
8. Keith Traylor
Damn YouTube. Video of Traylor’s 67 yard interception return in 2001 against the Jaguars, arguably one of the five funniest plays in sports history- is no where to be found on the site.
7. Mac, Jurko, and Harry
Arguably the city’s most popular radio crew, each member has a waistline as big as their opinions on Rex Grossman.
6. Bartolo Colon
White Sox fans everywhere were horrified when news came out late last week that Colon was coming back to the South Side. Thankfully, Colon’s Sox will be a different color next season. Unfortunatlty for Boston, his dietary plan will still be the same.
5. Michael Sweetney
ESPN’s Bill Simmons once joked that Sweetney was one more Big Mac away from playing in the NBDL. Unfortunately for Sweetney, he couldn’t even make it that far. Sweetney is currently out of basketball all together. His resume should just say ‘will play for chocolate’.
4. John Kruk
Kruk was a fan favorite everywhere he played, including his one season on the South Side, because of his ‘everyman’ status. If everyman looked like John Kruk, I would stop writing this list and immediately open a Taco Bell.
3. Eddy Curry
Two weeks ago, Eddy Curry’s former trainer sued him for breaching a contract on a loan. If anything, Curry should sue his trainer because he is such a fat slob.
2. Ted Washington
The best compliment anyone ever paid Washington in Chicago was that he was good at ‘keeping defenders off Urlacher’. That is just a kind way of saying he was simply too fat to be block by a single human.
1. William Perry
“They call me The Frige and I’m the rookie. I may be large, but I’m no dumb cookie.” I rest my case.
