  1. hahaha.. they have a rodeo on Chicago? That’s about the funnies thing I’ve heard all day!

  2. i can’t believe this – no more Wrigley Field

    😦

  3. Only when you’re in town, sweetie!

    Yeehaw!

  4. Read the link. It’s a joke, and part of an advertising campaign from Smithe.

    Wrigley actually can’t be renamed, since it’s a landmark.

  5. oh – i just saw part of it…

    that’s good – i miss home

  6. Totally. I bring it up all the time when discussing corporate parks.

    Although, it was pointed out to me recently that I was kind of wrong (if you look at it the right way) – technically, Wrigley Field is named after P. K. Wrigley, the man, who owned the Cubs. Wrigley the company didn’t.
