A Little Cubs Humor Courtesy of CBS and the Onion

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.

      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.

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

    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?

    Very insensitive of you to use the word “boombox,” Bert. ;-)
