City officials ordered a new round of inspections at Wrigley Field on Thursday and threatened to block Monday night's game if the team can't prove the ballpark is safe.

Buildings Commissioner Stan Kaderbek said he ordered the review after a reporter noted during an interview Wednesday that some repairs at the ballpark were "shoddy.''

...

Kaderbek said the Cubs have until noon Monday to show that the 90-year-old Wrigley Field is safe.

"If we can't get independent verification, to my satisfaction, that the repairs were made and that they were made correctly, and that it is not an issue of shoddy workmanship, we will not have a game on Monday night at Wrigley Field,'' he said.

NBC5 (http://www.nbc5.com/news/3667924/detail.html?z=dp&dpswid=2265994&dppid=65193) has some further info:

[A] reporter with The Los Angeles Times, which is a Tribune Co. newspaper, was interviewing Building Commissioner Stan Kaderbek and she told him that she had a source within the Cubs organization that claimed the repairs to the stadium's roof were shoddy and caused the concrete to fall. . . .

The Cubs have hired Osbourne Engineering and Structural Shop, but the building commissioner said that he doesn't trust those companies. He wants a third company to check out all the repairs that have been done at Wrigley Field since 2001.

The funniest thing about this is that the (Trib owned) LA Times reporter who alerted the building commisioner to this alleged shoddy work says now that she just got her notes "mixed up" and says it was a miscommunication.

Think she saw her job flash before her eyes?

Think she saw her job flash before her eyes?Yeah, I saw that on Ch. 5, too. Wonder what building her notes referred to, if not Wrigley? Sammy's ego (it is the size of a building, after all)?:cool:

The LA Times/Tribune reporter was busy recanting her story, claiming that she had NO contact with Cub insiders and had 'mixed up' her notes.
\She has a future in the White House.

Urine has a definite ph balance that would assist in the wearing away of the concrete portions of Wrigley.

I've got a few AGM-65D's and AIM-120 Amraam's that I could send towards Wrigley if that'll help?

Just wonderin': can a Slammer lock up on a ground target like the urine-soaked, crumbling walls of the Beer Garden?

Heat seek would be the way to go. All that fresh urine would light up the radar and provide for an excellent lock. :smile:

bombs, missiles and dynomite wouldn't work. It has to IMPLOAD not expload. The urine particles in the air would be very hazerdous, worse than the asbestos even.
