CHICAGO - A Chicago Cubs employee found a third piece of concrete at Wrigley Field that apparently fell from the 90-year-old stadium's upper deck, team officials said.
After incidents on June 9 and July 16 when concrete chunks fell at different spots, a team employee on Wednesday found a fragment that was "relatively small, palm-of-your-hand" sized, said Mike Lufrano, Cubs vice president for community affairs.

Yet still big enough to put a pretty good sized bump on somebody's head should it happen to fall on them...

The place is falling apart. Tear it down!!!

Isn't it obvious what the solution to this problem is? The Cubune needs to get a big giant diaper and wrap the underside of the entire upper deck in it.

Make it a giant, smelly pee-soaked diaper and make the Flubbie fans feel right at home.

Given the fact the Cubs have understated injureis, do you thin k they m,ight be understating the damage to the Urinal?

The place is falling apart. Tear it down!!! Maybe John Mellencamp can sing take me out (on a stretcher) to the ballgame. As their season goes crumbling down................ If they need any help tearing it down, I'm sure there are MANY in here that would volunteer to help.:):bandance::wink:

Actually, I have a feeling that the headline would read something like this:

"Cubs Fan Crushed by Falling Concrete: Sabotage by Sox Fans Suspected"
