View Full Version : U.S. Cellular

The Illinois Sports Facilities Authority on Monday formally approved the name change of the White Sox' stadium to U.S. Cellular Field.

The authority's vote was fairly routine, no serious opposition was put forth. Officials still have to work out the financing details to determine how to come up with the bonds that raise the money to pay for stadium renovations -- to be repaid with U.S. Cellular funds.

The only reason I bring this up is to wonder if any of the dim-twits who were eager to report that the state would reject the U.S. Cellular deal will now even bother to acknowledge the state's approval.

Then again, who's kidding whom. Probably too many people have forgotten about the outcry to bother bringing it up now.

See you all at the Cell on Friday.
