“I’m from the Midwest, and it was not meant as a dig.

It’s their team, and I get it.”
We’re happy Wrigley Field was showcased in a new post-apocalyptic thriller which will debut this fall on NBC,” a Cubs spokesman told The Post, “but we simply did not approve the artificial addition to the Wrigley Field Marquee.”
