Creeping Inexorably Toward A Worthwhile Sub-Heading.
Wednesday, February 11, 2004
If any of you think the Maddux/Cubs saga hasn't gone on too long, I saw the clinching argument that it has last night.
ATA, the airline to fly when you're done caring, stepped into the fray with a television ad. I missed the first bit as I flipped by, but coming back I saw a shot of an ATA jet's nose, with the text of an open letter to The Professor typing itself onto the screen. It listed reasons why Maddux should play in Chicago intead of Los Angeles, then mentioned that he could hop one of their "convenient flights" to the Land of LA if he wanted to visit during an off day.
I appreciate the Cub fans at ATA getting this done. Really, it's very sweet. However, it's disturbing that a large company can decide to put an ad like this together, and have confidence that it will still be relevant by airtime.
So, that's it. I'm going to fly ATA somewhere, because I'm done caring.
Sign somewhere, Greg. Get off my radar, and get in a uniform or just get.
