There was only one Cub home game last Memorial Day weekend. No Cubs home games are scheduled for this weekend.
Rather than the Cubs, the big draw to the neighborhood every Memorial Day weekend is the influx of bears, otters and cubs (small c) that stampede Boystown for the International Mr. Leather convention.
Last year's IML weekend drew plenty of thugs, too.
Chicago police recorded a slew of violent crimes in Boystown and Wrigleyville over last year's holiday: 1 assault with handgun; 1 unlawful possession of a firearm; 1 kidnapping; 1 sexual abuse; 7 robberies; and 15 batteries.
If this year's crime count falls short of last year, we will proudly name Tom Skilling "International Mr. Weather 2013." No harness required, Tom.
