I told you guys the Urinal's upper deck needed to be wrapped in a giant diaper. A big soaking, smelly diaper. Their fans will feel right at home.

I wonder how they'll cover the falling concrete up now, since it will be suspended above the fans for everyone to see.

The Flubs will be home for October. So for the last weekend of the year, the Cubune Newspaper will sponsor Lovable Loser Fan Appreciation Day at the Urinal featuring a "Pinata of Death" promotion. All kids 13 and under get a whack at the net, filled with candy, toys, and a few other surprises, too!

A lot of good a net will do when the whole upper deck falls in.

They will just use it to up the price of there tickets


"Come see the shrine crumble before your eyes, it is a hisotric event at great wrigley field. Before your eyes watch chunks of the upper decl fall into the safety netting below"

ANother excuse why they dont watch the games over there

You guys have to check out the Sun-Times story - it's much better:

http://www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-wrigley27.html

"Elvira and Duane Stano said the third incident occurred less than 50 minutes before the start of the July 21 Cubs-Reds game, nearly striking a woman in the next seat.


"It could have killed somebody. That's how hard it hit. Luckily, that seat wasn't occupied," said Duane Stano, who was seated in the next row.

"We read in the paper that a worker found it before the game and that nobody was in jeopardy. But that's not what happened. There was a lady right there."

This back-and-forth between the Cubune and the Sun-Times is becoming very entertaining.

Forget Spiderman logos on the bases. Film a promo of him shooting his web on the underside of the upper deck protecting fans from falling concete.

Even Peter Parker (Spiderman) would have a tough task with this one.Not quite as tough as battling the Green Goblin or Doc Ock,but tough enough.:bandance: :bandance:

Can you imagine if the unthinkable happened. Without any warning, an entire section of the upper deck collapses to the lower deck with 40,000 in attendance. Those things usually happen without any warning. :o:

As much as we poke fun at Cub fans and the Urinal, that's the last thing I want to happen. Let the place collapse when they're out of town.

Seems like the Cubune is pretty quiet about the ongoing inspection findings. Why put up the safety if there isn't a problem? Inquiring minds want to know!

I was thinking about that the other day. I would hope if the results of the inspection said anything like that was even remotely likely the place would be shut down for repairs.

"And remember that randomly selected fans in the lower deck will get to take home their very own piece of 'Beautiful Wrigley Field'. So make your plans to be here..."
