CHICAGO— For those of you who don’t know, Richard Edwards is the chancellor here at Rutgers University New Brunswick and he is a huge Chicago Cubs fan. He had traveled to Chicago over this Halloween weekend with his family to get away from the losses Rutgers has produced on the football field to watch a team that “has a chance of winning”.
Even if you have been living under a rock, you would still know that recently Rutgers has been having trouble producing numbers on the football field leading to many losses this season. It appears that Chancellor Edwards want to get the bad taste out losses out of his mouth and attend a game where the team usually sucks, but is actually doing pretty well this year; something we can only imagine as Rutgers students.
Edwards makes it to Wrigley Field and is seeming to enjoy the time spent there with his family. However, as any student knows, you can never escape the RU screw. It was at this time in the second inning where Jose Ramirez scored the home run. While being upset that the Indians scored and losing hope that the underdog finally gets to win, the ball comes soaring and hits Chancellor Edwards in the face. We asked Chancellor Edwards what it was like getting hit in the face with a baseball in a professional game and he had this to say.
“It was kind of like walking into Brower at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon only to find out that they are still only serving breakfast. You understand that there’s not much you can do about it, but it’s still pretty shitty anyway.”
After the embarrassment of being hit in the face in front of everyone, Edwards made his way to the concession stand to replace the snacks lost in the accident. It was to his dismay that they had run out of curly fries so he had to settle for the less tasty french fry. Chancellor Edwards can’t seem to catch a break but luckily for him, no one knows how to handle national embarrassment better than a Scarlet Knight.
