The Cubs have a big night coming on Tuesday

And it's not just the game against the Astros. They're making themselves pretty.

The Wall Street Journal:
While the Astros and the Cubs are neck-and-neck in the National League Central, there will be a lot more on the line at their game Tuesday than the race for a division championship. Bankers from J.P. Morgan Chase are hosting representatives of leading financial institutions at the game in an effort to syndicate about $450 million in loans that JPM, Citigroup and Bank of America are underwriting as part of financier Tom Ricketts' efforts to buy the Cubs for nearly $900 million. Once the financing is complete, the Tribune Co., which has filed for bankruptcy and owns the Cubs, can submit the deal to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for approval.

So what would be the funniest way to mess it up. Your comments are now solicited...
