Chicago White Sox GM Kenny Williams was the victim of robbery when his home was broken into recently and articles of clothing, a set of keys, and his 2005 World Series ring were stolen by quite possibly the strangest, and worst, burglar ever.
The alleged thief, 51-year-old Wayne L. Field III of Chicago, broke into the Williams’ house sometime between November 19-21. While inside the residence, Field apparently made himself right at home, knowing the Chicago general manager was out of town.
From NBC Chicago…
Williams confirmed the incident and said the man drank his beer, ate frozen pizza, surfed the internet and kicked his shoes off on the bed.
During the burglary, Field left behind a hospital bracelet with his name on it, police said. Field returned some time later and was seen peeking into the home.
Police found him wearing Williams’ clothes and the GM’s 2005 World Series ring.
The article also went on to say that he defrosted a lobster so you know this guy has phenomenal taste too.
I'll give my man Wayne Field some credit here though, when he does something , he does it big.
But he lacked execution here. Obviously mistake number 1 was not pawning the ring immediately. Can't just be sashaying all over town with someone elses 2005 World Series Ring. Its too gawdy for a porfessional criminal, which its clear Wayne Field is.
The clothes? Well the clothes, I'd wear the shit out of too (Kenny is a cocksman...great wardrobe), so Im gonna let that slide. Same with the beer and frozen pizzas.
But the hospital bracelet with your name on it being left at the house you just robbed is a Buckner-esque mistake. And there's no doubt in my mind that the reason he went back was to get that bracelet.
Its a mistake he will never forget. But there will be bigger houses and better rings in Wayne Field's future. He will learn from his mistakes and be better off for it. Godspeed, Wayne.
