Cubs owner Tom Ricketts receives package with goat's head inside
As if we needed a reminder there are plenty of unbalanced folks walking around these days, here's another: Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts received a package in the mail at Wrigley Field Wednesday afternoon. Inside was the severed head of a goat.

For those unaware, there are legions of people who believe the Cubs can't win the World Series due to the curse of the billy goat, which originates from a story stemming from the 1945 World Series. It's complete nonsense (and, yes, I'm a Cubs fan, as I've noted before), but hey, heaven forbid logic enter the equation.
Anyway, back to the story at hand.
Cubs' staff members immediately called the police and there's now an investigation underway. Also of note: The package reportedly "did not appear to be delivered by the U.S. Postal Service."
So the loser who did this dropped it off at Wrigley in person? Or at least conned someone else into taking it there?
Once again, my faith in humanity is shaken. No matter what you think about anyone doing any kind of job in any walk of life, this is an embarrassing course of action.
A goat's head. A freaking goat's head.
