On Second Thought - Mr. Ricketts

Having a night to sleep on it; I think maybe I kind of over did it with my last "post". But there are just a few things that make my blood boil and Tommy boy just about touched all of them. I seriously don't care if I ever see the Cubs win another game as long as I can keep Wrigley Field the way it is or was. Does this idiot think every game is a sell out because we think the Cubs are going to win it all? Better yet does he think that a few more millions will magically make a sucky organization world champs? I don't think so. I am pretty sure the Cubs have just as much money as anyone else in the Central Division yet how often have we even made the playoffs? Time to re-evaluate your priorities TOM!

Dear Mr. Ricketts

toyota wrigley field

Now I read what Cubs owner Mr. Ricketts had to say about his plans for Wrigley Field. Basically he said the Toyota Sign is going up, they are "studying" adding a Jumbotron, and selling the naming rights to Wrigley are "a real possibility."

Someone needs to sit that boy down and have a serious and I do mean serious talk with him. This is totally irrational thinking by an owner of the last shrine to Americas game. I guess my love affair with the cubs and the idea of professional baseball will end with the jumbotron at " CORPORATE SELLOUT FIELD".

I hope that a world series ring will fulfill your dreams Mr. Ricketts. Because you will be crushing the last bastion of hope for anyone who believes in doing what is right. I do at my ripe old age still believe that in the end it's not about who wins or loses but how you play the game!

City Council gives OK to Toyota sign at Wrigley

wrigley field toyota sign 5

They approved that Japanese car company advertisement. It says here they said that there sign "will not adversely affect the significant historical or architectural features" of Wrigley Field.
Also says that this isn't the last step if our Alderman Mr. Tunney calls for City Council approval. We will see.

UPDATE: The council voted 8-1 (one yellow-belly didn't vote) to approve it, but Mr. Tunney is now officially against the sign and says they will have to go through the City Council.

The Wave At Wrigley Field - My Response

Who did the Wave? Was it a bunch of White sox fans who got lost on the north side?
It's over, bulldoze it and build some more condos. I guess I can die knowing that I was there when it was real, fun, and not another circus that's about everything but baseball. I am sick. They can put up all the Japanese corporate advertising they want, I have TOTALLY LOST ALL HOPE.
