Some fans wear articles of clothing representing their favorite team. Some fans do that almost every day. Some fans name their kids after their favorite players. Some fans set up a dedicated team shrine in their house. Some fans even get tattoos of their team.

But Chicago Cubs fans choose the team’s logo for their new prosthetic eye:

That picture comes courtesy of the Smithsonian, noting that an Iraq war veteran who needed a prosthetic eye passed on the more traditional options in favor of a Chicago Cubs logo, which now stares back at you like the greatest high five ever.

    Ho-ly crap. That is so awesome. Somebody cut out my eye, so I can have one!

  • Seth

    I’d much rather have this guy, an Iraq War Veteran, throw out the first pitch to a game then some stupid celebrity.

    • Ron

      Yep. I couldnt agree more.

    • ETS


      We should start some petition to ask the Cubs to ask this vet if he would do Cubdom the honor!

      • DarthHater

        I’d sign it.

    What Seth said…

  • Stevie B

    Kick ass !

  • Chad

    I would rather have contact lenses with the cubs logo on them so that everytime I watched a cubs game it gave me the illusion that they were really good, and winning.

  • Teddy Ballgame

    Too bad Kirby Puckett didn’t play for the Cubs…wait, too soon??

    • Blublud

      aw man, thats just cruel. The sad part is, I don’t think Kirby even seen this joke coming. Badaboom!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m a Navy Corpsman and took care of a lot of wounded warriors at the Bethesda Naval Hospital. I had a yound Marine that lost his eye and did the same thing for his team, the Red Sox. It’s still pretty awesome.

    • ETS

      Thank you for your service.

      • KidCubbie

        Thanks. I love doing it.

    “which now stares back at you like the greatest high five ever.”
    Shouldn’t that be an eye five?

    • Hansman1982

      I wish I could see what you did there but I don’t have an eye for these things.

      • Cubbie Blues

        Here take mine.

        • Blublud

          Hey man, put that thing back in before it gets stuck. Haven’t your grandma ever told you about that?

  • Cubbie Blues

    Keep forgetting to change my name back.

    • TWC

      Who *ARE* you?

      • Cubbie Blues

        Allice Cooper?

  • Jack Weiland

    At first I saw this and thought “Wow, that’s great.”

    Then I thought: “Man, it’s really crappy that such a fine American hero is stuck rooting for the Chicago Cubs.”

    He deserves better.
