Coincidence?: Kim Jong Un And The '11 Sox

As the world ponders the whereabouts of North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un, a little noticed nugget in a recent AP story may hold the key. The story makes reference to a headline in a South Korean newspaper offering the following possibility for a sickness-related absence: "fried chicken and beer." Folks, you just can't make this stuff up! So, could the leader of The Hermit Kingdom be commiserating somewhere with recently defeated ex-Red Sox players Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez? Will he turn up in some LA dive with empty buckets of KFC and six-packs of Haffenreffer? Oh, the humanity!
