  • Let's Point and Laugh at the Cubs, Take 5,714

    http://chicagosports.chicagotribune....6195225.column

    Before the Banks statue went on display at Wrigley Monday, many people had inspected it, and they agreed: Mr. Cub, 7 feet and 300 pounds of bat-swinging bronze, looked great.

    Cella, who works at the Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany in Highwood, had scrutinized the things that mattered most to him as the sculptor. How was the patina? Excellent. Was the inscription on the correct side of the granite base? Yes, it was. Right down there on Ernie’s left it said:

    LETS PLAY TWO.

    Let us play two. Your 5th-grade teacher taught you this. When you drop a letter between words, you insert an apostrophe. In other words:
    LET’S PLAY TWO.
    No better way to honor your legends who, like most of your legends, never won anything.

    Cubs - 100 more years for the curse of the statue.

      Brick pavers would have been easier and cheaper to fix.

                I hope the Cubs will overcompensate for this error: next year's uniforms will say CUB'S.

                    Instead of the intended "CUBA" from 1996 or whenever it was?
                    Of course you do.

                        When I saw that the Cubs had unveiled a statue of Banks on Opening Day at Wrigley, one question did come to mind. Banks' last season was 1971. This is 2008. Why did they wait 37 years to do a statue of him? The only thing i could think of would be if they plan on building a series of other former Cub players in the near, similar to what the Cardinals did with the statues of Ozzie, Brock, Gibson, Jack Buck, Dizzy Dean, and maybe on or two others in the last several years at Busch II.

                            They just showed on the CSN broadcast that they added the apostrophe since yesterday.
