'Blame that goat!'

A goat's head was delivered to Wrigley Field on Wednesday addressed to Cubs owner Tom Ricketts.


The Cubs are in the middle of a terse negotiation with the city and neighborhood regarding ballpark renovations. The team wants to install a Jumbotron scoreboard, among other changes, and wants to increase the number of night games at Wrigley Field from 30 per season to about 40.

I've heard speculation than angry Wrigley Field neighbors might be behind this whole "goat head" incident. Certainly possible, but here's my question: Is it really that easy to find a goat head hanging around Wrigleyville? It's a city environment and there probably aren't too many dead goats available.

Someone who lives in the neighborhood would have had to go to great lengths to pull this one off. Not that I'd put it by them.

Regardless of the source of the goat head, this is a great opportunity to put Marty Brennaman and Jeff Brantley on this blog for the first time. "I blame that goat!"
