Recently, the Cubs finally unveiled a statue outside Wrigley
Field of Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks. Ernie is probably the most
popular Cub ever (especially my Mom's favorite Cub ever) and
it's about time they honored him with something other than
retiring his jersey number (14). However, they made a small
mistake on the granite pedestal holding the statue. Ernie's
famous trademark phrase, "Let's Play Two (signafying that it's
just a good day, let's play two games...a doubleheader) was
incorrectly spelled "Lets Play Two", leaving out the apostraphe.
It's since been corrected. Now Ernie can be known as a prolific
home run hitter, All-Star shortstop, humanitarian and honoree of
a statue with proper grammar.
