For Sale: Wrigley Field Bricks

Ten years ago, Chicago Cubs fans famously had to sit under protective netting because the park was falling apart around them.

Wednesday, the team is celebrating a century of futility at Wrigley Field.

Now, should you have been so “lucky” to have walked away with part of the park’s falling facade, you definitely saved yourself some cash.  It would appear that, in conjunction of the iconic ballpark’s 100th anniversary, Major League Baseball has decided to cash in…one brick at a time.

Maybe I joke because deep down I want a Wrigley Field Brick.  I really do.  I’d put that thing up on a shelf, read it stories and brush its hair before bed every night.

Then again…I’d also be down for a chunk of JFK’s skull, a piece of the Hindenburg’s mooring mast or any other disaster you want to throw at me.

In all seriousness, Happy Birthday, Wrigley Field…you old scamp, you.
