Nevermind, typo in the headline. Should be "win".

Should be "win".
Wind is past tense of win.

That's too bad. I was trying to figure out what a "wind landmark" might be. Maybe the standings flags on the scoreboard? A particularly old windsock?

I KNOW I left my lance around here somewhere.....

I was thinking that "wind" (the verb) perhaps could be used similarly to "wrest."

I remember Harry Caray yelling "CUBS WIND! CUBS WIND!" at the end of about 60 games a year.

And what a mighty wind it was.

Maybe they will actually spend some money on the big league roster now.

They wound the landmarks commission around their little finger.
