The statue of Harry Caray, for whatever reason, is a seemingly constant target of vandalism. Perhaps it was Harry’s jovial nature or the fact that some folks just *have* to vandalize (in the same way I just *have* to dance), but whatever the reason, some loser struck again this weekend. But in the future, the loser might want to stuff a dictionary into his Jordache backpack, along with his white spray paint.

Cubs officials said they only learned of the defacement just before a Tribune reporter emailed inquiring about it at about 5:30 p.m.

The Cubs responded by removing most of the white spray paint, team spokesman Peter Chase said. While no police report had been filed as of tonight, one could be filed by Monday, Chase said. Chicago Breaking News.

The top word is obviously “Sox,” but the bottom word is hopelessly incoherent. A misspelled “bites”? A horribly written “rules”? I choose to believe something closer to the latter, because it’s hard to imagine someone choosing to express an anti-Sox message by defacing a Harry Caray statue – unless, of course, it was some kind of bumbling attempt at a frame-up by a not-so-clever Sox fan.
