It Sure Looks Like the Wrigley Field Scoreboard Operator Was Sleeping on the Job Last Night

Wrigley Field’s scoreboard is manually operated — a throwback to simpler times before kids’ first words were part of a sext. The non-digital entity requires a human being to update it. Unfortunately, humans aren’t as reliable as computers. Sometimes they make mistakes — or just flat-out fall asleep on the job.

The gentleman was caught resting his eyes by SNY’s cameras last night. Perhaps he was suffering from vertigo. That perch is pretty high up.

Many people are predicting this dude can kiss his job goodbye. But remember: this is the Cubs. They’ll probably sell the chair he dozed off on within the week or make him the new mascot or something.

That franchise is a total wild card.
