ROD BLAGOJEVICH: As Illinois governor and self-proclaimed Cubs fan, "Blago" fanned the flames of hatred towards Bartman, calling his actions "stupid" and saying "If he commits a crime, he won't get a pardon from this governor." Blagojevich was later sentenced to prison for 14 years on 18 corruption convictions, including trying to sell Barack Obama¿s Senate seat after Obama was elected president in 2008.
