From page 44 of the indictment of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, about the deal the Tribune Company was seeking on behalf of the Cubs (via Talking Points Memo):

"During the call, Rod Blagojevich's wife can be heard in the background telling Rod Blagojevich to tell Deputy Governor A 'to hold up that fucking Cubs shit ... fuck them'"

Keep laughing, Aaron Schafer.
