Rick Monday
A Real American Hero

31 years ago, Rick Monday, the center fielder for the Chicago Cubs (and veteran of the US Marine Corps), saw two individuals come onto the field during a game versus the LA Dodgers. Monday saw them lay Old Glory on the ground and then douse it with lighter fluid. They kept lighting matches, but the wind kept blowing them out. Monday decided to take matters into his own hands and save our flag.

Job well done, Marine.

I don't understand. I saw him pick up the flag but the a** kicking was so fast I missed it...?

Carlton,
I don't think that Mondat actually kicked off any any particular ass. I think that VSO was just wishing that a seriou ass-whoopin' took place.

I knew there was a reason I liked the Cubs (in addition to being a masochist).

Yes I was, and it would've been justified.
