The renovations of Wrigley Field hit another snag early Friday morning with Todd “Bubba” Ricketts was found passed out on a pile of construction rubble at the job site. Work is expected to resume Friday afternoon when construction workers expect Ricketts will be sober enough to muster the strength required to leave on his own power.
“Apparently Bubba really tied one on Thursday night because he was passed out cold on a pile of old bricks,” said job foreman Frankie Vincent. “Apparently he really tied one on Thursday night because he was passed out cold on a pile of old bricks.”Normally he’s out here with us bitching about boss man Tom [Ricketts] and cat-calling pretty ladies walking by, so we recognized him right away.”
Vincent said Ricketts’ stature as a part-owner of the team has all the construction workers wearing kid gloves when trying to deal with the situation.
“We find passed-out bums around here all the time when we come into work, but this morning that passed-out bum happened to be one of the team’s owners, so everyone is a little scared to wake him up so we can start working for the day,” said Vincent. “Bubba likes to act like he’s one of the guys, but at the end of the day he’s just another billionaire who could make our lives a living hell if we pissed him off.”
