Chicago Cubs All-Seeing Eye

Chicago Cubs prosthetic eye

I’ve seen this story making its rounds on the World Wide Web. But in case you’ve missed it, an Iraq war veteran chose a Cubs logo as the iris for his prosthetic eye.

The Smithsonian tweeted the story and there’s a picture of the ‘Cubs eye’ below. BuzzFeed Sports also took to Photoshop creating an image of what the Cubbie headlight might look like once implanted (photo above).

Perhaps this could only be more fitting if it were a Pirates logo, but unquestionably, what an honor for the Cubs to have a military hero showing his team spirit with such pride.

Red, white and blue, indeed!
