George Will will not speak at your event if the Cubs are in the playoffs

Friday October 17th, 2014

Avowed Cubs fan and conservative commentator George Will has a clause in his public speaking contract allowing him to renege on any scheduled appearance if it conflicts with a Cubs playoff appearance.

If the Cubs do make the playoffs for the first time since 2008, perhaps he'll write a second, albeit happier, book about the experience of being a lifelong Cub. 

Important: Willie Mays was carrying a dog around at AT&T Park
