Yes, that’s right. Before the Soler story broke, the story of someone sending a goat head to Tom Ricketts was the news of the day… PERFECT night for a rain out! ESPN Chicago was reporting that the Chicago Police were investigating this as an “intimidating package”
“We got a call at 2:30 p.m., responding to 1060 West Addison, Wrigley Field,” a Chicago Police Department spokesman said. “We’re investigating it as an intimidating package.” The package was found at Gate K near the field, the team spokesman told the Chicago Tribune.
There was no note, I think the head was subtle enough, and it was indeed addressed to Tom Ricketts. The negotiations between the Cubs, the City of Chicago, and the surrounding rooftop owners has been growing in intensity and in some spots hatred, maybe this is an extension of that hate. Or maybe people are just completely bonkers, I don’t know, either way it’s disturbing.
