Steve Goodman is spinning in his grave

The suits at the Tribune Company (shares of which haven't been faring well on the stock market) have decided to vandalize Wrigley Field so as to scare up a few more bucks. They're going to sell advertising space amid the sacred ivy on the outfield walls.

The late Steve Goodman, who wrote "A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" (lyrics here), must be shedding oceans of tears from his perch in the Great Beyond.

But the dipshit Cub loyalists, most of whom are callow youths who can't hold their beer, will continue to flock to the Friendly Confines and pay exorbitant prices to see their team fall short of a berth in the World Series yet again.

Screw 'em! Go Sox!
