The powers that be have installed the GIANT Toyota Sign just in time for the BP Crosstown Cup. In case you haven't been following Cubs news: the Toyota Sign went through a number of hoops down at City Hall, but was ultimately approved - yesterday. The installation started immediately. Now, the BP Crosstown Cup is the new name for the bi-annual Cubs v. White Sox series. Some used to refer to it as the "crosstown classic", but the Cubs signed a three year sponsorship deal with BP a few months back to make a few extra bucks out of the deal.
In case you haven't been following the REAL news: Toyota and BP haven't had too good of a year. Toyota had some "sudden acceleration" issues that killed many people - dead. And British Petroleum, well looks like they even topped that. A few days after "The Cup" deal was struck, a rig exploded and began spewing oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Last I checked... they still haven't fixed that leak.
So, congratulations to the Chicago Cubs for being sponsored by two foreign owned, nationally (and locally) despised, corporations. Play Ball.
