    Anyone see the promotion that the Marlins did on the Cubs last night?

    Piniella apparently was unhappy with an on-field promotion, too. In reference to the supposed billy goat curse on the Cubs, the Marlins paraded a goat onto the field.
    "Tasteless," Piniella told the media. "Every time we come here, they do some kind of gimmick. I don't know who thinks them up. I mean, when they come to Chicago, we don't fry marlin."

    As much as I like the Cubs, I don't see any harm in this. I'm sure it's funny and clearly it works, because the Cubs have a terrible time winning at Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Whatever that place is called now.

    I agree with Lou. Never classy to tear down another team or player.

    Tasteless? lol, the only people that have a problem with this are the people that actually believe that a goat is the reason the Cubs can't win a world series. Which, imo, is one of the major reasons the Cubs haven't won a world series, people actually believe it's a curse.

    I agree. If you are silly enough to believe in the curse of the goat, then take it like a man when people poke fun at you.

    I don't believe, but I don't have the energy to open a new browser and see for myself.

    Hardly hilarious - a better description would be unoriginal, tired, played out, etc. Either that or the Marlins don't have a very good marketing department, or they can't find anything good to say about their own team. Probably both.

    Chances are they don't make fun of the 10k+ boost in attendance they get for each game when the Cubs are in town.

    As a Cubs fan I can see it is marketing. The smaller market teams need to try and raise fan interest. Even though Florida has won a world series more rescently than the cubs. (Who hasn't)


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
