Chicago— As the Chicago White Sox prepare to invade Wrigley Field to face the Cubs this weekend for another edition of the Crosstown Series, Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf already should feel like a winner. On June 21, Reinsdorf was one of the recipients of a Jefferson Award, regarded as the “Nobel Prize for public service.”
This sounds like a big deal and everything, but what did he get it for? The article doesn’t say exactly what his charity work was, so I am going to assume that it’s for giving Adam Dunn a job and 56 million dollars. I don’t know how he is supposed to feel like a winner. The White Sox are the worst baseball team in this city not named the Chicago Cubs.
