This is Just Sick

Completely and totally unacceptable and disgusting.

A dead goat was found hanging on a statute of Harry Caray outside Wrigley Field early Monday on the North Side. A similar incident occurred in 2007, police said.

About 2:40 a.m., police responded to a 911 call indicating a dead goat was hanging from a rope on the statue of Harry Caray outside Wrigley Field at the intersection of Clark and Addison streets, according to Town Hall District police.

The goat was hanging on one of Caray’s outstretched arms, according to police, who took the goat down and disposed of the remains. It was not known how the goat died and nothing was damaged, according to police. CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.

That goat better already have been dead, because if someone actually killed a goat just to pull of this stunt…

    You can buy a whole goat, already butchered, at any grocery where a significant amount of Greek people shop. I can get you a whole lamb on 24 hours notice, if you’re interested.

    Typical. Only South Side Trash could find this funny. How come 2 of our biggest rivals (Sox and Cards) have to be the dirtiest, hickiest, most trailor trash fans in all of baseball? Why couldn’t we have a rival where the fanbase atleast has SOME resemblance of class?

      It’s just our lot in life, DaveB. Every Superman has his super villain — we just happen to have two of them.

      However, I think the Brewers are quickly becoming our biggest rival. They are much closer to us than the Cards, they are in our league and division (unlike the Sox), and most of our games in the past few years have been wild and intense. Also, I actually sort of enjoy the Cubs/Brewers rivalry.

        Enjoy the rivalry with the Brewers as you battle it out for the WC spot. As for DaveB, I will say that I have lived all over this great country of ours and reserve my highest respect for the fans of two baseball teams – the Cardinals and the Cubs. In general, both are class acts – with some exceptions (yourself obviously included). Enjoy the season and ignore the pain that you will inevitably endure when the leaves start turning…

          I just think a lot of Cardinal fans are insufferable tools. I’m not talking about all Cardinal fans, just the fanatics, moderates, casual fans, people with any kind of Cardinal fan in their lineage, relatives of Cardinal fans- be it by blood or marriage, and people who are for any reason sympathetic towards Cardinal fans even in matters that in no way pertain to baseball.

          Outside of that small sub-sect, I find Cardinal fans to be thoughtful, unbiased, humble literate baseball fans who are down for some spirited rivalry.

          Oh, and I’ll save you the trouble of typing out a response. Just pick one:
          a) You’re just bitter cuz the Cubs haven’t won anything for a hundred bazillion years.
          b) CUBS- Completely Useless By September- Ha!
          c) Enjoying another year of heartbreak cuz the Cubs aint gonna win NOTHIN!
          e) When was the last time the Cardinals won the WS? Huh? Huh?
          f) all of the above

            You have issues, dude.

            I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and ascribe my attributes to paragraph 2.

            When it is all said and done, it’s about what happens on the field. 1-0 Redbirds…
