Wow. This is just sick. Some crazed Chicago Cubs fan, or anti-fan, or Tom Ricketts hater or standard psycho type just did something very disturbing. A severed goat’s head arrived by mail at Wrigley Field today, addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts. Remind me not complain about my hate mail so much in the future. You know the story of the supposed “goat curse” and the Cubs already, so we’ll just skip that. Police are investigating this disturbing occurrence. I’m sure Tom Ricketts and his family are quite unnerved right now, so I would like to extend best wishes to them. According to the Chicago Tribune: The package was dropped off at Gate K at the field, Chicago Cubs spokesman Green said. The delivery was reported to police, he said. Police were called to the ballpark about 2:30 p.m. because of an “intimidating package,” and officers filed an appropriate report, said Police News Affairs Officer Veejay Zala. News Affairs did not have information on details of the incident, but police are investigating, Zala said. Currently, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Tom Ricketts are in negotiations to renovate Wrigley Field. There is also a huge public relations battle being fought right now between the Wrigleyville rooftop owners and the Chicago Cubs. In their last press release, the rooftops association looked defensive. Monday, before the Cubs home opener, chairman Tom Ricketts made the local media rounds. Actually, a few members of the Ricketts family did the local media circuit. The Ricketts were simply getting their message out there. Basically, the Ricketts family was to Chicago media Monday morning what the Plumlee family is to Duke basketball- they’re everywhere. But apparently, this might exposure could have rubbed one very sick individual the wrong way. Paul M.
