If you consider yourself a true sports fan, then you have to take at least one trip to Chicago's Wrigley Field during your lifetime. The historic baseball facility has turned into a mecca for sports fans. However, we have a little piece of advice for you if you visit Wrigley: Do NOT try to take any of the ivy that hangs on the outfield wall home with you.
Two men from Pennsylvania attempted to steal some of the ivy recently during an early-morning trip to Wrigley Field, and it didn't end well for them. At about 3:45 a.m. on Sunday, Kevin Burge and Steven Gudknecht, who are both 25, slid through metal security bars outside of Wrigley Field and made their way inside. Once there, they attempted to steal ivy off the outfield wall. But Wrigley Field security spotted them on security cameras and were able to get to the guys before they made their getaway. They were arrested a short time later and charged with misdemeanor trespassing.
We can appreciate the fact that these two guys were so enamored with the idea of taking a piece of Wrigley Field home that they tried to pull off this heist. But next time, they should stick with picking up a program and taking a couple of pictures outside of the stadium instead. We're betting it will make their trip to Wrigley a hell of a lot more fun.
