You can now buy a Wilco pennant

It's hard to put "Chicago" and "pennant" in the same sentence without mentioning the dreams of Cubs fans. If we had to guess, there's probably a significant overlap between the fandoms of the North Siders and Wilco. Jeff Tweedy is a big baseball fan, too. Wilco toured minor league stadiums a few years back, and the frontman has thrown out the first pitch at a Cubs game. Now, the band is selling a wool pennant—in Chicago fandom-neutral kelly green—made by Oxford Pennant. The company also sells a Chicago flag pennant and "I Wanna Be Like Kanye" pennant for all those people who have never said that. Wave 'em around when Wilco headlines Pitchfork Music Festival in July.
