On The Loop this morning, Bruce Wolf was talking about the new Ernie Banks statue. Wolf mentioned that the plaque on the statue reads "Let's play two" except they left out the apostrophe in "Let's."

Well, let's is the shortened version of "let us," so yeah, they screwed it up.

Maybe they're starting a new professional team tennis league and one of the teams is name The Lets and yesterday they played two games.

I was thinking the same thing. The Lets always play two. It's their way.

Strange, though, that now there are no scheduled doubleheaders at Wrigley Field and when they do play two at Wrigley Field, they chase out all the fans after the first game and make them pay an addition (hefty) admission to get into the second game.

It's being reported in the media that the sculptor who did it will fix the "typo" before the next Cub homestand.

I suppose in October we'll hear about The Curse of the Typo.

Well, they need a new Scapegoat.

Maybe it's an abbreviated version of "[Ernie's mother] lets [Ernie] play two [even though he should have been home for dinner an hour ago]"

The base of the Ernie Banks statue reads "Lets play two" instead of "Let's play two"

Somebody's sig said (or says) "Only Cub fans misuse apostrophies" I can never remember who. :scratch:

kittle42 designed and built that statue out of nothing but brawn and CUBS bones.

The crux of the biscuit, is the Apostrophe.

It's already been fixed.
