Maybe I am dreaming that people actually like to see good baseball at a park not on Tv. I was also speaking of the convention/business traveler that is in a rosemont hotel. Going to a ball game that is right down the street would be a real possibility.

Regarding the skywalks, I wouldnt rule that out with rosemont the city of gold. A tram could be possible and a dedicated shuttle lane on game day would be a easy solution.
