Remember the old Time-Life Books series — "Mysteries of the Unknown," I think it was redundantly called?
The one that wonders aloud if "ancient astronauts" built the pyramids (no, it couldn't possibly have been Egyptians) — that one.
It's the same kind of thinking that leads to the belief that a guy sitting on a tractor couldn't possibly have made those fancy doodles in his field. It must have been aliens!
In case you're still a non-believer, check out the address itself and click on "satellite" (of love) for the coolest baseball-from-spaaaaaaace image you'll see until E.T. returns.
Note the interlocking design around the bird logo. A stargate of some kind? Or, perhaps it's a symbol of Albert's rank in an insterstellar fleet of supermen. Perhaps it's just a maze in which Cubs fans can lose themselves forever.
BLS hat tip to Hardball Talk (and, apparently, others) for the close encounter.
