    Football at Wrigley? WTF??

    Didn't the Bears play at Wrigley for nearly 50 years without a problem?

    I am sure someone on this board is old enough to remember how the field that fit for 50 years was situated. I cannot believe they didn't measure before they laid out the field for tonight's game.

    It used to run from home plate to center field but I read somewhere that the Cubs added seats down the third base line that made the old positioning impossible.

    On every change of possession they have to turn around and use the other goal. Brilliant.

    Thanks to Obama and his cronies, we'll be seeing a lot more of this.

    I blame outsourcing and holes in the ozone. And of course the unions.

    I got a chance to watch some of the game. Very cool and the endzone thing made of oddly compelling television.

    If I lived in Chicago (and had not killed myself b/c I lived in Chicago), I would probably go to a game there.
