Paul Sullivan at the Trib just took this photo of the Cubs new logo sign in the dugout tunnel.

There are words I could use, but won’t. I’ll just say, “Typical.”

The “real” Paul Sullivan.

Hmm-uh-kay.

Seriously, that fucking sign had to be manufactured on a custom order. The dudes cutting the framing on that thing must’ve noticed the mistake. The person painting the logo must’ve noticed the mistake. The person signing off on the damn thing must’ve noticed. The shipping/receiving crew must’ve noticed the mistake. The guy opening the box at Wrigley must’ve noticed something. The 2 idiots that drilled holes in the wall and hung it up there must’ve noticed the mistake. And the players/personnel - SOMEBODY must’ve stared at it funny and noticed the mistake.

But NONE OF THAT HAPPENED? Really?

All except the “real” Paul Sullivan. And his trusty camera phone…

Hmm-uh-kay.

Well color me stupid then.

I can vouch that it’s really Paul. We talk pretty regularly. Bets guess is that someone flipped the U after the sign was posted. Still funny.

@PWSullivan is Paul Sullivan from the Tribune. He has been since Twitter started and I’ve been his Tweet Buddy (don’t that sound manly?) almost the entire time.

It looks like someone flipped it. Notice that the top of the inverted U is higher than the B or S.

I’m more curious about when the trade mark (tm) was included in the logo.

Because the Cubs’ logo is trademarked. Even though it’s whored out by every pirate T-shirt maker in America, it’s still technically protected.

It can’t be true.  There’s no way the Cubs could make a mistake this big.

All kidding aside, this is the type of shit that happens in a poorly run organization.  There is something very wrong with the Cubs.  I think I’m coming around on Big Star’s evaluation of Cap’n, in that it’s not too early to say he sucks.

Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history that has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms.

AFAIK, most, if not all, professional sports teams have trade marked their logo years ago. It’s an additional revenue source.
