Cubs’ Single-A Team To Give Away LeBron Championship Replica Rings

CHICAGO (CBS) The Chicago Cubs Single-A affiliate, the Peoria Chiefs, will have a LeBron James 2011 NBA Championship Replica Ring Giveaway on June 16. The replica ring, much like LeBron’s, is non-existent.

The promotion will be on the same night the Chiefs salute the six NBA Championships won by the Chicago Bulls.

The Chiefs are also looking into whether or not they can skip the fourth inning of the game to honor James skipping the fourth quarter of the each NBA Finals game.

“We aren’t sure if the league will allow it,” team President Rocky Vonachen said. “But if LeBron doesn’t need to show up for the fourth, maybe we won’t either.”

In addition to the rings, the Chiefs announced they will also give away a replica of James’ non-existent Finals MVP Award.

“Really this is just us getting back to the real world and waking up today and trying to solve our own personal problems,” said Vice President of Ticket Sales Eric Obalil.

Fans will also have the opportunity to learn the Heimlich, to help prevent themselves, or those around them, from choking in a big situation.

    The CUBS organization is mocking the absence of a championship ring?

    The CUBS???

    “Pot, please meet kettle.”

    PS I was very glad to see LBJ lose in the Finals.

    The closest the Cubs will get to a championship of any kind, will be watching LeBron and the Heat play in the NBA FINALS AGAIN NEXT YEAR. The Heat lost, they said they lost…they didn’t say…WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR. For the Cubs…NEXT YEAR WILL NEVER COME!

    I waved to Kerry Wood yesterday, he waved back…hurt his arm…now he is on the Disabled List AGAIN!

      Don’t bet on it. There may not be b-ball next year. Not that I care. I don’t like black mans hockey.

    Obviously some people can’t read.

    Even though I luv the Cubs I can c why they r such losers, what does Lebron have to do with them, nothing. Cubs are pretty much non exsistent maybe they should give the team away not that anyone would want it.

    Peope who are against this it’s called a sense of humor. Get one. You might find your life a lot easier.

    I’m not against it…I see the creativity/humor…but I also see an instance of WYC.
