The papers ran the first full page ads with the Cubs' schedule on it. The only choice promotional event is the May 21st Floppy Hat Day. That sucks! Sure, there are two hat days and a few lapel pins and key chains. Also there are a few kids days like the growth chart and the Build-a-Bear (fine, so long as they are better than Brian Urlacher). BFD. I want stuff for me! All the other events are the drawings for things like Kerry Wood jerseys (100 to be awarded), Mark Prior baseballs (500) and Sammy Sosa faux toenails made from genuine cork.
Pretty crappy year for give aways. They better win. No self serving fan is gonna be placated by Precious Moments Mother's Day Figurines.
