This is Daughter of Son of Admin (aka Granddaughter of Admin). She is pictured here at the Chicago Children's Museum where she went with her daddy for a special outing.
She looks happy! She is happy! While on Navy Pier they stopped at the Build-A-Bear Workshop where the tiny cute happy nice girl created a stuffed dog she named Ruff. She even got to place the dog's heart inside the dog (through his butt, she would tell her grandparents, which she thought was hilarious).
They brought the dog home and showed him to Mommy, who loved the new favorite doll, too! Everyone in the family was having a great time with Ruff.
Son of Admin thought it a good idea to make Ruff a Cub fan, so he put this little shirt on the unsuspecting new member of the family.
His daughter took one look at her brand new stuffed animal with a Cub shirt on and said, pointing to the cubby bear strolling through the Cubs C, "YUCKY! NO DADDY!" At which point the shirt was removed. The little nice cute girl regained her former joyous mood.
As has been well documented on this blog, the tiny little cute girl has been to Wrigley Field several times. Her last attempt to watch the Cubs in action (if you can call it that) was last summer and didn't turn out too well. Here she is after not being able to get in because the Cubs refused to sell Standing Room even though the game was a virtual sell-out. She doesn't look too happy.
Instead of making it easy for us, and hundreds of others, to get in, the Cubs tried to force us to purchase $70 seats. For the five of us we would have had to spend something like $350, before taxes, hot dogs etc.
Am I suggesting that just because her last Wrigley Field experience was negative, this 22-month old held it against the Cubs and now won't let her stuffed dog wear a Cub shirt?
The Cubs introduced stuffed mascot Clark the Cub to enhance the ballpark experience of fans like Granddaughter of Admin. Perhaps they haven't noticed that not so many of those future season ticket holders can get into the ballpark unless their parents win the lottery or take out a second mortgage or deny themselves food for a couple of weeks. Haven't seen nearly as many kids at Wrigley Field these last few seasons.
So maybe they ain't future season ticket holders after all.
