Chicago Cubs Can’t Have Their Cake and Win Too
Last week the Chicago Cubs celebrated the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field and did so in style. There were all kinds of activities associated with the birthday including a cake that was a replica of Wrigley Field. The 400 pound cake was made at Carlo’s Bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey.
The cake was showcased at Wrigley Field and then was taken to the Field Museum for a charity event. With no further need for the cake, it was thrown away in a dumpster. Unfortunately for the Cubs, someone saw it and took pictures of it in the dumpster. Could the Field Museum have disposed of it differently? Probably, but pictures don’t lie.
As a result it is the Cubs who have been getting “roasted” over its demise and the way the museum handled it. Just hours earlier, the Cub’s bullpen blew a lead in the ninth inning and lost the anniversary game making for a double dose of embarrassing loses. The game and then the cake.
