Dear Tom....

 

I don’t care if there’s other posts about this ….I want to make sure, if Ricketts reads BCB, he knows how I feel.

I’m sure gazillionaires don’t care what people think about them, but my love for you (Tom) has gone down a few notches.I am a 5-game-a-season fan at Wrigley, if I’m lucky. I wont be breaking your bank. I would never not go to a game because of signage. Nothing could stop me. My opinion is meaningless to you. I would boycott the advertisers however.

 I also think some (not all) fans that go to games frequently may not appreciate the awesomeness of walking into the park and seeing the sheer beauty of the thing. I’m talking to you Tom. It’s like seeing the Grand Canyon, a Rembrandt, a ‘59 Cadillac Eldorado, flying over Chicago on a clear night, I don’t get to see those things very often but when I do I stare in wonder at them.

I’m throwing Blou into this cuz he generates comments; Blou thinks this signage is fine!….and now I’m apologizing to him for that. Sorry Blou And now I’m throwing in Milton Bradley for good measure; if clubhouse chemistry is so important why not ballpark chemistry? Was that too much of a reach?

The first time I got interested in baseball was when I saw Gehrig’s “luckiest man” speech years ago. I said to myself what the heck does baseball have that could make this guy feel lucky. I found out. I love every nuance of this sport. Nothing can ruin baseball/Cubs in my eyes, but parks can be ruined.

I’ve said it before, baseball brings tears to my eyes, happy and sad. This is bringing the latter. I’m begging on my (blogging) hands and knees not to put up that sign. Do something else.

Sincerely Yours, cooliogirl

p.s. please do not approve the Toyota sign
