Cubs Goof on ‘Let’s Play Two’

Either the Curse of the Billy Goat is at it again, or my eyes were deceiving me.  I just watched a clip of the Chicago Cubs’ unveiling (on opening day) a statue to the great Ernie Banks.

Banks was famous for saying, "Let’s play two."  Fittingly, the Cubs decided to put that saying on the pedestal holding Banks’s statue.  However, and here’s where I’m not sure if I saw things wrong or if Mr. Goat has prevailed again, they spelled it (in all caps), "LETS PLAY TWO," with no apostrophe.

Thats no good.
