Yep, just like you I am totally aware that the Tribune Company and the rooftop owners signed an agreement that says the Cubs can't block the rooftop owner's view.
It's legal and all that.
One time I took in a game in Anaheim up in their cheap seats, which weren't really cheap.
I bet they're about the same distance the rooftop seats are, and you need binocs to see the batter.
Any boob that wants to pay to go watch a game from the next block, I don't care.
But what I do care about is the Cubs.
I care about their ability to win a series.
They want to put up the scoreboard, and that will bring in millions of dollars annually to be spent on the team.
And these rooftop guys holding up the construction of the scoreboard is really annoying.
The Cubs have the city of Chicago's blessing to build.
Tom Ricketts has said he won't do it til he gets a signed statement from the rooftop people that says they won't sue.
Hey man, it's Chicago politics and as usual it's kind of a mess.
But you don't need to be in some smoke-filled backroom meeting to conclude that our favorite team might sign some decent pitching with the money from the scoreboard.
Free Wrigley, rooftop people.
Somehow, figure it out and free Wrigley.
Lastly, Ted Lilly retired.
Ted if you read this I would like to thank you for the years of hard assed joy you brought to us Cub Fans.
And now I hope you and your family can move to the next phase of your lives together and be happy.
Lastly lastly, you know my inner Beavis and Butthead won't let me pass up a chance to do a boner joke.
You shoulda seen the drawing that I mercifully cut out...
