A little humor this afternoon on an otherwise drab, depressing day.

First, from The Onion, which always skewers things just right, a take on the Wrigley Field renovation announcement. The headline offers the thrust of the joke, but you can read the article for the full effect: “Wrigley Field Renovation Proposal Includes Tearing Down Clubhouse, Bleachers, Upper Deck, Lower Deck, Building New Stadium 10 Miles North.”

Second, from CBS’s Eye on Sports blog, it’s a hypothetical bobblehead, as part of their ongoing Bobblehead Project. In short, the project is about digitally creating creative bobbleheads that are more than just Random Player X from Random Team Y. Instead, the bobbleheads encapsulate iconic moments in baseball history, like the time the ball bounced off Jose Canseco’s head for a homer, or the time George Brett lost his mind.

The latest installment? The time a Cubs player destroyed Sammy Sosa’s boombox:


Give the Bobblehead Project a look for some of the other installments. And if they actually make “The Boombox Incident,” I will be first in line to buy one.

  • Cubbie Blues

    I. Want. One.

    • hansman1982

      You. Could. Make. One.

      (Yes, I am jealous of the skull)

      • Cubbie Blues

        HA! But it would be all one color & I can’t paint.

  • Anthony

    Next: Moises Alou peeing in his hands before a game…

    • Cubbie Blues

      I would prefer a Manny Ramirez one with him coming back onto the field after taking a leak inside the green monster during a visit to the mound.

  • DaveY

    How about a Cesar Izturis goosing Aramis Ramirez after a walk off homer bobble “head”.

    • Cubbie Blues

      Or, this one.

      • Jp3

        Oh that is awesome!!!

      • DarthHater

        Yea, that’s a keeper.

  • HuskerCub

    The Onion article is great, but seriously how are they going to fix the falling concrete problem? Will they have to tear down the upper deck and rebuild?

  • DarthHater

    Very insensitive of you to use the word “boombox,” Bert. 😉
