The lonely bear

This bear stood outside the left field gate at Wrigley Field waving at anyone and everyone that passed him. They passed by without notice. It was like he didn’t exist. The bear just stood there, waving, trying to promote something with a guy hoping to hand out information. Nothing got handed out, and still the bear stood there, waving, as if he was greeting the wall. It was very hollow. I remember thinking the handler should light the bear on fire, because then someone would look. Not really, but, you know. Just a thought. There’s something quite distressing about an ignored mascot.

  1. Great visual metaphor for the pathetic state of the Cubs. It’s hard to work up much enthusiasm.
