Sure, the bleachers are higher now...Well, maybe some of the views from the neighboring rooftops have been adversely affected...


Never mind that eight tall speaker poles -- four in right field and four in left -- mysteriously appeared on top of the bleachers during construction. The poles weren't in the original plans approved by the city, and they further obstruct several of the rooftops' views. But what are the Cubs' "rooftop partners'' going to do about it now?

"But we tried to be as honest about the changes as we could. We think the rooftops are extremely viable. We want them to do well. We just don't want their interests to come before ours.'' - Carol Sleazehack, Chicago Sun-Times



"We tried to as honest...as we could?" No, how about just BEING honest?

Large speaker poles behind the bleachers? Yeah, that's first class.

I used to have a double-talk voice mail greeting on my home phone.
I don't know if it double crossed anyone, but it sure confused the hell out of people.

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread...

I saw this line this morning as well, and found it absolutely hilarious.

I remember hearing the blather from a Cub fan about how great it was that you could sit in the bleachers, in the same places and perhaps on the same wood benches where Cub fans had sat for close to seventy years. Now that line of argument will be dropped, dropped in the same bin where all the other boastful talk of some Cub fans has been deposited.

1. The lowly American League teams serve alcohol to their base fans. The grand NL teams, like the Cubs, refuse to serve demon alcohol.
2. Baseball should be only be played under the sun, and NOT under lights.
3. Advertising inside a ballpark is not acceptable, it's best to go to a park undefiled by advertising.
4. Having your park share the same name as a corporation (that owns the team) is fine, selling naming rights in just plain selling out.
