I think the bigger picture issue is that: tripping on a ramp = a few bruises; toppling over side of open escalator (though this problem appears as tho it may be solved next season) = almost certain death

This happened this season past at Shea if I recall (after a game).

Yeah, and IIRC the guy wasn't even drunk. He was just messing around being goofy and slipped and fell off.

True but it is not far from lake michigan and the groundwater level is about 10-15 feet below grade in the area.

How could it have been a water issue? Isn't the Dan Ryan lower than the ballpark?

Welcome to the Great Lakes Basin.

Comiskey is close to the Lake. You can see it from the Upper Deck.

Bingo.

If you dig the stadium it is right at Dan Ryan level.

I don't think I have ever heard of flooding issues on the Ryan in my lifetime.

I've never heard of flooding issues on the Ryan either, even during the rainiest day in Chicago history, which was just a month ago; however, the Ryan is solid, while a baseball field is not. I could see where it would be a headache for Roger Bossard.

Not sure when all this construction is supposed to begin, but my Step Father said he is working on a bid for some excavating work to be done at the ballpark.

I would like a new scoreboard, and keep the out of town board up to date. Also the biggest improvement needed is two more beers of the world.

I would say more like four more beers of the world are needed. The lines are way too long and slow right now. Also I think Portillo's should take over all of the concessions as soon as possible...

"The Portillo's Right Field Party Deck". I love the sound of it. Build one similar to the party deck they have at Turner Field.
