The fact that they wanted the concrete was classic.

Jimmy Greenfield of the Tribune has just told me this:

Cubs just put out a statement that the police and city investigated and didn't find the claim credible. We'll see.

This has to be a joke right?

The guy wanted to keep the chunk safe so he put it at home in a Mc Donalds cup?

Then what was that about 21% of his heart working? this has Onion article written all over it!!!

LMAO! The Cubune is scrambling to get ahead of the story this time!

Fan reports falling concrete at Wrigley

Quote:
Below is a statement issued by the Chicago Cubs organization.

A fan attending Wednesday's game reported to the Chicago Cubs that he had evidence of falling concrete at Wrigley Field. The Chicago Police Department was notified and the individual was interviewed. The Chicago Cubs also notified the City's Building Commissioner Stan Kaderbek of the incident...
Do you think the Sun-Times has a font size large enough for tomorrow's front page headline?

Oh, this is beautiful...

Default LOL@ it not being credible

I'm ROFLMAO at this.

And the reports are saying it's not "credible".

Weren't they allegedly not credible two months ago?

Here is what the Cubs released to the media here at Wrigley. Could be a hoax???

STATEMENT FROM THE CHICAGO CUBS
THURSDAY, AUGUST 26, 2004

A fan attending Wednesday's game reported to the Chicago Cubs that he
had
evidence of falling concrete at Wrigley Field. The Chicago Police
Department
was notified and the individual was interviewed. The Chicago Cubs also
notified the City's Building Commissioner Stan Kaderbek of the
incident.
Based on the Chicago Police Department's investigation and the
information
we have to date, we agree with the City's assessment there is
insufficient
evidence at this time to believe this is an incident of falling
concrete at
Wrigley Field.

Or it could be spin control and another one in the sequence of lies, coverups and otherwise shady things that the Tribune Co. has done recently to cause as much financial success and popularity for their team.

Do you mean that the attendance figures could be as accurate as the circulation numbers?

I think because of the regularity of the falling concrete at Wrigley, the multiple inspections of the structure's stability, and the fact that the team has installed NETS FOR THE PURPOSE OF CATCHING FUTURE FALLING CONCRETE, the fan in attendance should be give every benefit of the doubt that he is telling the truth.

McPhail is a hell of a spin-control guy, or liar, but each time he is forced to say Wrigley Field is structually stable, his credibility falls faster than 90-year-old cement!
