The SLW front office has learned former Rookie of the Year Sip is one of the thousands stuck in Europe thanks to the ash produced from the volcano Eyjafjallajokull.
SLWAA President Geoff Hixson had this to say. “It is unclear what the purpose of his European travels were, but at this point our only concern is getting him home before the 17th Annual SLW Classic. Sip is a key part of this weekend and I can’t imagine having a tournament without him. With all of that ash, I bet it looks like the inside of Endsley’s old car over there.”
Fellow Chicagoan and the voice of SLW Jason Morgan added, “Sip’s been married for less than a year and traveling with his wife. He’s stuck in an airport in a foreign country, flying standby for over 48 hours, his condo is for sale, he’s missing work, he’s dealing with a lot sh*t right now. I saw on Bodog.com where they listed a Sipich divorce in the next week at 15:1, as his former roommate and lifetime buddy, I saw some serious value for a $100 investment. Not that I’m rooting for such a thing, but hey my kids gotta eat too”.
“I heard they were awarded the trip after winning the Family Feud knock-off ‘Pig In A Poke’,” Commissioner Hixson added.
