Now Represting U. of Wisc.: Wrigley-Field

There have been plenty of rare honorifics thrown in the direction of Wrigley Field, the Cubs antiquated and widely beloved ballpark, across the years. At this point it's practically a hallmark on the national registry of historic places, despite that fact that all the history there for the past century has resulted in a decidedly bad outcome for the hometown team.

Well, now old Wrigley has some new chores to do, because it's representing a segment of the University of Wisconsin student body.

Ok, so it's not that Wrigley Field. Instead, a graduate student named Elizabeth Wrigley-Field (seriously, what are the odds?) was elected as a member of the University of Wisconsin's Associated Students of Madison student government. Luckily, the Wisconsin State-Journal has been hot on the path of Ms. Wrigley-Field's political career, mostly by stalking her extraordinary name.

Of course, there is one upside: Since she's working on her doctorate in sociology, she should be ideally suited to provide therapy for all the Cubs fans who flock to meet her ... and groan about her crumbling exterior.
