Cheker later was taken over by Speedway.

I used to have a Cheker near where I grew up and I remember my dad going in there.

"When I drive into Cheker, I say Sayers, you're right at home." I say either the gas fumes or the concussions have gotten to him.

Or maybe he didn't really get over teammate Brian Piccolo's death . . .

Rot-An-Egg is my personal favorite. A giant seems to have stepped on poor Dudley.

HAPPY EASTER, EVEN IF PORK IS PART OF THE EASTER MEAL!

Is there any clips after the video or the recording is cut?

I love how that Jim Sutera guy has to loudly crinkle his bag of peanuts (or potato chips or whatever it is) and then stuff one in his mouth while he's talking. That's real class!

On July 12, 2014, it will mark the 35th anniversary of Disco Demolition event. Even though the second game was a forfeit, luckily nobody got hurt or died as a result of the melee.

And unfortunately the ChiSox lost the 2nd game to the Tigers 9-0 via forfeit.

Wait really?

This is the greatest comercial ever made....period!

I'm calling on BS on this commercial. I gave Dustin Hoffman a Tootsie (Roll) once, he punched me in the nose and filed a restraining order.

That toll collector looks a little like Dennis Franz...
