I did a little research with some old friends in Cleveland, trying to better discover the roots of CC's problem with alcohol.
And while I learned nothing of use to the psychologists, I did learn how Sabathia got his nickname.
The Scene : Bars in Cleveland ( early afternoon, late at night, occasionally 8:00am )
Patron : " I'll have CC on the rocks."
Bartender : "You got it buddy; Canadian Club on the rocks."
Patron: "Double CC and soda"
Patron: "CC manhattan, up."
Patron: "CC neat with a draft."
Patron: "CC and coke. Lot's of ice. I've got a hangover."
Patron : " Double CC on the rocks."
Bartender: "Hey, CC, can I have your autograph?"
