Someone Tagged Harry Caray’s Statue

Over the weekend, Chicago Cubs officials became aware that someone had vandalized the Harry Caray statue outside of Wrigley Field. According to reports, someone spray painted “SOX” with another illegible word beneath it over the front of the statue’s base, which also bears the Cubs’ dedication inscription.

According to a photo taken by a Chicago Tribune employee (see it after the jump), the second word looks a little like “BITES” but that doesn’t make any sense, because why would someone spray paint “Sox bites” on a Cubs statue? Because, well, they’re Cubs fans. But in fairness, it wouldn’t shock me if a White Sox fan did this. I just know it wasn’t a St. Louis Cardinals fan, because we’re the classiest and most intelligent fans in baseball.

Cubs officials said they only learned of the defacement just before a Tribune reporter emailed inquiring about it at about 5:30 p.m.

The Cubs responded by removing most of the white spray paint, team spokesman Peter Chase said. While no police report had been filed as of tonight, one could be filed by Monday, Chase said. (Via Chicago Tribune)

Who are the police going to charge? Do they have a forensic graffiti analyst that can decipher the Retard Code and track down this arrogant vandal? I’ll start with a helpful tip – it doesn’t say “bites”. My guess is the second word is the artist’s tag. Or it says “bees” and the vandal is Nic Cage.
