CHICAGO — “Bring your Badger pride April 21 and receive a special-edition Cubs + UW Madison cap.”

That was the wording in a tweet from the Chicago Cubs on Thursday, ahead of their UW-Madison fan night at Wrigley Field next month.

Fans can get a ticket to the Padres-Cubs game that night, as well as the hat.

The offer confused many Wisconsinites, as the Cubs’ state of Illinois already boasts two Big Ten teams (Northwestern and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).
