    Thumbs up Keep It Wrigley

    Hey Cubs fans. There is a website out there that its goal is to gather signatures to send it to petition against any name change to Wrigley Field.

    This is a non-profit site and only purpose is to gather signatures. You will not see merchandise or anyt retail items for sale to make a profit off such an effort.

    It's a great cause and hope others choose to take the time to sign and confirm your signature.

    this is almost like save cy.. but hell im signing it..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    The Wrigley company just needs to pony up the dough, they have been getting free advertising for years!

    I'm not a Cubbychaser by any means, but Wrigley needs to stay Wrigley. I would sign.

    Re: Keep It Wrigley

    That is a cool link. Thanks for that. Feels like I'm there.

    Also, thanks for the support on the petition signing.

    I do partially feel that Wrigley should own up and pay something, but one way or another the name needs to stay.

    Fukedome, off the wall for a double. Not bad for a first AB at Wrigley!

    Re: Keep It Wrigley

    If Wrigley sells out, maybe the new stadium will be called:

    United Airline Concourse
    Golden Arches Memorial Stadium
    Ben & Jerry's Blast
    Oprah's Big S (for Stadium)
    Dubai Port of All Calls Field
    Barrack's Bastion
    GE We Light up the World Ballpark
    Michaels 22 Parklorama
    Michaelob Memorial

    New Cubs positive slogan: It has been a hundred years and well worth the wait.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.
    Let my Fred's Four Horsemen ride: Georges, Hogue, Nader, and McKay.

    Keep it Wrigley? Umm, yeah, that's worked for a hundred years now. I'm good with it. Such traditions should be held to.
