The opening statement from Blago attorney Sam Adam Jr. briefly switched gears to the topic of Patti Blagojevich -- and preparing the jury for what they're bound to hear out of the former first lady's mouth.
Patti is a "good woman," Adam said, one that "stands by her man."
That explains why jurors will hear Patti say "F-- the Cubs" on a recording in the coming months, he said.
Of course she disliked the Cubs, he said -- the team is owned by the Tribune Co., and that newspaper's editorial board wanted her husband impeached.
But this time, there was no "eff-ing" around. Adam dropped a full-fledged f-bomb.
