John Canning Jr, who came up short last year in his bid for the storied Chicago Cubs baseball team, made a shocking admission on Tuesday.
“The only thing that I was able to come out of the closet on was I’m actually a White Sox fan. God, what a relief not to buy the Cubs,” he said as the audience of several hundred local executives laughed.
In a town where Cubs and White Sox fans mock each other as not true baseball fans, such a statement could be viewed as blasphemy.
