I had to think about it for a while and almost threw in the towel but now I remember.

EDIT: Also, it's good that this was cancelled. These guys shouldn't have to get off the couch today.

In case you are interested:

On a Thursday night before his first start of the season that June, Prior was booked to sign autographs during an appearance at the Just Ducky Too gift store in Naperville.

"Watching a Mark Prior 'meet and greet' in Naperville Thursday was a lot like watching him pitch the infamous Game 6 in last fall's National League championship series," began the Daily Herald story about the appearance. "What started out as a joyous, once-in-a-lifetime occasion for some fans soon gave way to frustration, disbelief and mounds of confusion."

Kids were crying. Prior was upset. Media were turned away. The store owners promised buyers time with Prior, something he never agreed to in the contract. In the chaos, Prior left without signing all the replicas he had agreed to autograph. Allegations were made. Lawsuits were filed. And wary Cubs fans, attuned to recognizing bad omens, had a feeling this was a sign that Prior wasn't the "just ducky" hurler they had hoped.
