Question of the day

Thursday, Feb 7, 2013

* Pitchers and catchers report in five days. And

Wrigley Field is turning 100, and the Chicago Cubs want fans to help commemorate the milestone.

The home of the Cubs will reach the century mark next year. On Wednesday, the Cubs announced the “Wrigley Field Turns 100 Logo Contest.”

Fans are invited to enter a design to be used as the official logo during a yearlong celebration in 2014. A Cubs spokeswoman says the winning logo may be featured at the ballpark, on merchandise and possibly on the team’s uniforms.

* The Question: Wrigley Field 100th anniversary logo suggestions?

Best response wins a $20 gift card at Springfield’s Grab-a-Java. Our last winner was VanillaMan, who has returned to fine form.

    They should get the Century Club trophy on loan from Ken Dunkin. But don’t lose it though, I’m sure he’ll need it back real soon.


  15. - ZC - Thursday, Feb 7, 13 @ 12:25 pm:

    I think you need one of those infrared-Obama style images of Wrigley, with DESPAIR below it.

    Billy Goat in white stockings, jersey, sunglasses and backwards ball cap standing on his hind legs with one arm around a similarly dressed donkey taking a cell phone self-shot and high-fiving with the ballgame, if you can call it that, going on in the background. Slogan below the graphic reads, “Come for the Big Dawg, Stay for the Mascot Race.”

    Losing on the North Side is still more fun than winning on the South Side.

    When the Cubs win, it’s awesome. When they lose, it’s still pretty good.

  31. - Mouthy - Thursday, Feb 7, 13 @ 12:55 pm:

    How about a big blue “W” on a white background with, in smaller blue letters, “rigley”. or same “W” only with “inner”. instead of rigley.


  32. - Endangered Moderate Species - Thursday, Feb 7, 13 @ 12:57 pm:

    Next year is here! Don’t miss it!


  33. - anonymoose - Thursday, Feb 7, 13 @ 1:01 pm:

    Logo….depends on whether “Squeezy” was ever trademarked. I see a “Squeezy-Snake” hindering the forward progress of the Cubby Bear.

    Any Tea Party Ricketts could even have this logo on a bright yellow “Don’t Tread On Me” background.

    – MrJM


  44. - Irish - Thursday, Feb 7, 13 @ 1:46 pm:

    Logo should be a picture of the front of Wrigley Field with the phrase “100 years of trying”.
    On the Marquee it says “Lack of winning gets you the Ricketts.”
