This year for Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade hasn’t been the best of years, the Cubs are currently near the bottom of the NL Central and during his recent trip back from the MLB All-Star Game, he was detained by TSA agents for more than half and hour:
Quade said Thursday the TSA detained him for about 40 minutes and patted him down twice while going through airport security. He finally was cleared without so much as a thank-you.
“I guess they thought I had a bomb or something,” he said. “I never did tell him (my job). I don’t do that. I was hoping they’d ask. … I guess one of their alarms went off. You hear about it, but now I get the full pat-down (and the question) ‘Are you sensitive in any areas?’”
Thankfully for Quade, he didn’t miss his flight back from Arizona but then subsequently got delayed getting back to Chicago and had to stay in Pittsburgh for an extra day. The joys of air travel, huh?
