Another Thought On The AC Sign

From blog reader Jonathan Rivet:

Yes, the sign is wrong.

But the 00 is correct. It has been 0 years since they won the division. At least, it hasn't been 1 full year.

The 59 and 96 are the numbers that are wrong. In order for it to say 96 now, it would have said 01 during the 1909 season. This is against their stated policy. Unless they're going to change 00 to 02 if the Cubs fail to win the division this year.

In any case, hopefully it says AC000000 (or AC010000) next year.

Point taken, and amen to that last statement.
