Cubs decal tries to escape from Travis Wood's helmet

Now we know why they call Chicago "The Windy City."

A stray gust caught the Cubs logo on Travis Wood's helmet during the starter's second-inning at-bat Monday, turning the "C" into a "U" -- or maybe a horseshoe.

"Closed-side down so the luck doesn't run out," explained Bob Brenly.

Hey, the Cubs beat the Mets, 6-1, so maybe there's something to that theory.
