The Commission on Chicago Landmarks gave an award (http://chicagobusiness.com/cgi-bin/news.pl?id=21987) to the Cubs for the historic bleacher expansion project.

:dunno:

From the article:
Mike Lufrano, vice-president of community affairs for the Cubs, said...
"We've been good stewards of the ballpark for 90 years, and this shows that working in cooperation with the city, we were able to expand the life of our ballpark."

Yeah, whatever. How's that concrete-catching net holding up?

What's historic about something which was rebuilt again?

If it helps any, I just got rejected by the Chicago Bungalow Association for an energy savers grant because the attic windows don't have the same Grid Pattern in them... It will cost me almost as much to put the gird pattern in as the grant is for... I knew there was a catch!

It was the "This place doesn't smell like urine (yet) like the rest of the park" award.

Shouldn't that be the historic Bud Light Bleachers?

As far back as 3,000 BC, man has congregated in cities, and has had the ability to ferment various grains and grapes in order to make alcohol. And since that time, reprobates have gotten drunk and urinated on buildings in said cities on the way back to their abodes.

This is the "history" the City of Chicago has chosen to honor, apparently.

I will never understand Chicagos facination with the Cubs or Wrigley Field.
