Oh well, guy won't do a second of time, maybe some community service, if ppl are driving around drunk would rather have them be caught and their license taken away than driving around undetected and posing a risk

Wellll even when he played I think the guy smoked like 3 pack a day

"No one ever accused Mark Grace of holding back in interviews just as no one ever accused the former Cubs first baseman of taking steroids.

"I'm body by booze," Grace said yesterday on Sporting News RadioŚnot to mention Winston cigarettes."

Mark had his fair share of bars, booze, and women during his playing career.  Can't fault a man for that, as far as the DUI, call a cab.  Gracie played during the years that I loved the Cubbie blue, one of my favorites.

I honestly think the majority of Chicago cops wouldn't be able to arrest the guy if they pulled him over on suspicion DUI , even if he was covered in his own vomit naked behind the wheel w/ needles all over the seat as long as he was within 15 miles of his home they'd give him a "don't let me catch u again buster" n apologize for interfering with him, the guy was a god damn legend in this town!

Never got why rich people don't hire drivers.

He is the best color guy in the sport.

I get the baseball package and tune into alot of the Diamond back games because of him.

Sutton also good.
The SF broadcasters also great.

Actually 4th DUI overall for Mark.  He's tied Carlton Fisk's number of DUI's.  Neither have a license to drive, but still have keys.

U N B E L I E V A B L E--i didnt know that about fisk, and im a red sox fan- mann. these guys are heros to some, but in reality, they just people who were gifted more than others.. 99% of celebs today if they walked by i wouldnt give a second glance. anna kournikova and sam 24 jones of the old celtics however, thats a different story-=
