Hilarious Fake Press Release Rips Cubs

When reporters and writers arrived at Miller Park to take in the Brewers-Cubs game on Friday night, they were treated to some unexpected hilarity.  Hidden within the regular game day press notes was a fake press release making fun of the Cubs and G.M. Jim Hendry.  Here’s a picture of the sheet:

Whoever was able to pull this off is a Miller Park legend in my book.  Given the Brewers recent history, you don’t need to do much to reach legendary status so I think the person responsible for the prank has reached those heights.  This rivals Dan Gilbert’s letter to the fans in my opinion.  Brewers Vice President of Communications Tyler Barnes said he has no idea how it could have happened.

You’ve got people credentialed from every city in the country around here,” he said. “Without knowing who did it… It’s an unfortunate incident. It’s a lousy attempt at a practical joke and in that way we’re certainly sorry. But without being able to know who did it…”

It was clearly an inside job, so bravo.  Perfectly executed.
