The Sunday Funnies

Continuing with Zeke Bonura stories (because if there's one thing I've learned from writing the Sunday Funnies, it's that fitting two punchlines into one post means I need to find another story for the next week):

Bonura spent five years playing for Jimmy Dykes with the White Sox, then was traded to Washington. One day he found himself perched on third base and looking into the White Sox dugout, where he saw his old manager swatting a mosquito.

This, for some reason, fired up the synapses in Bonura's brain. The steal sign! 

So the slow-legged slugger took off for home. And made it, partly because the Sox were taken by surprise and partly because Bonura knocked the ball out of the catcher's hands.

"I forgot I wasn't on his team anymore," Zeke explained after the game.
