Gapers Block

An off-duty police officer attended yesterday's Cubs-Sox game up at Wrigley wearing a Red Sox jersey. After the game, some drunk-ass Cubs fan took offense and started a fight -- despite being told that the BoSox fan was a cop -- and ended up tasered. Lesson to hooligans: no shirt is worth getting zapped over.
