Wrong Field!

I was shopping at Orland Mall in Orland Park (IL) Saturday afternoon. I was telling my parents to hurry up but then looked outside and saw the rain and knew there probably was a rain delay at Wrigley, so we went in a couple more stores. We went into a store that had these light up signs because we just got Cubs bar stools and a pub table in our basement and wanted to get a Cubs sign to put on the wall above it. Well, right on the left when you walk in there was Cubs stuff. The neon signs are like $300, but we saw a light up box sign for $50 that had the Cubs logo in the middle and a field behind it. Something didn't look right, so I took a closer look. Sure enough, it was the wrong field!!!!! I was furious!!!!! I thought, "they wouldn't be dumb enough to put another field on there, would they?" But I looked harder and it definitely wasn't Wrigley! The press boxes weren't at the right angle, the lights on top of the stadium were vertical instead of horizontal, there were way too many aisles, the seating sections were all off, and most obvious the seats were red!!! I saw bricks though so I figured it was Busch Stadium, but my dad thought it was Great American Ball Park with the red seats. I told him that the "Reds" don't have to have "red" seats in their ballpark and I was pretty sure it was Busch Stadium. Anyway, the players were all blurry so that didn't help. So we went up to these like two 20 year old guys (both wearing sux hats...go figure!) and my dad told them it wasn't Wrigley. One guy was like "no way man" and the other guy just looked stunned. The "no way man" guy went with my dad to see what we were talking about and I just stood at the counter telling the stunned guy why it clearly wasn't Wrigley Field, but how he wouldn't know anyway being a sux fan and has he looked at the standings lately and he should come over to the good side. Then my dad and the other dude came back and my dad was like "you might want to tell your manager or let people know before they buy it that it's defective" and the guy's like "okay, ya, wow, thanks for telling us" and the stunned guy is still looking stunned at me wearing Cubs stuff from head to toe. Then we walked out and my dad turns to me and goes, "I can't believe you were the first person to notice that. They must feel like losers getting told off by a 17 year old girl." And I said "Ya, what morons. I'm still really mad though. Let's go eat." So we went out to eat which always helps me blow off steam. But anyway, I felt proud for noticing it and kinda like a super hero, saving the world from sox fans and wrong Cubs merchandise, even though it sounds corny.

Just wanted to warn everyone that it's not Wrigley. So if anyone would buy it, go home, hang it on their wall, lite it up, then watch the Cubs game and go "hey that doesn't look like Wrigley..." and feel ripped off.
