OK, so this might be taking the whole “GM for a day” thing a little too far.
Paula Faris of NBC Chicago reports that a man was arrested yesterday for allegedly breaking into White Sox general manager Ken Williams’ home after “police found him wearing Williams’ clothes and the GM’s 2005 World Series ring.”
But wait, there’s more.
Williams told Faris that the man also drank his beer, ate his frozen pizza, used his computer, got in his bed, and was even defrosting a lobster when police arrived.
Oh, and how did the police actually catch him? Well, the guy walked into the house wearing Williams’ clothes while they were dusting the crime scene for prints.
Pretending to be a GM isn’t all fun and lobsters, so if the judicial system really wants to punish the guy they should force him to take responsibility for Adam Dunn‘s contract.
