The new owner of the TRIBUNE COMPANY, bazillionaire Sam Zell, announced recently that he would entertaining selling not one, but TWO icons of the city of Chicago:
The Chicago Cubs
Mr Zell bought the Tribune Company back in December, and immediately started his "renovations" of the newly-acquired, vast empire.
I just cannot imagine WRIGLEY FIELD being called anything else. But Zell has already said that he would gladly sell the "renaming rights" to the Friendly Confines.
Well, Bully for him!
And since the Cubs haven't won a World Series in 100 years...how could he possibly put them on the auction block as well?
If he does sell the Cubs, and that team leaves the Windy City, I would support a public flogging on the Magnificent Mile for Mr. Zell.
