"Go Cubs Go" Dirge: Best. Open. Ever.

Lots of talk about the rooftop owners vs. the Cubs over the signage and revenue sharing etc. but no discussion of what the planned changes mean for the experience of seeing a game at Wrigley?? What are ticket buyers' opinions about the jumbotron and signage, not to mention the hotel? Do people really want to be flashed in the face for nine innings? You may as well go across town to the Cell (which you should do anyway - go Sox).

Fair point, and I'm sure there will be people who will find the experience degraded after the "renovations" go through. It won't be the same experience--of course, for me, having the rooftops populated weith bleachers full of paying patrons rather than a bunch of shirtless neighborhood guys throwing a ball around has already changed that experience from my childhood. My personal opinion: if a Jumbotron and increased signage and an attached museum changes the other main aspect of my Cubs fan experience (i.e., never, ever winning a championship), I don't have a problem with them. Others can, and certainly will, disagree.

Totally understood. While I personally would prefer to see them keep the park largely as is, since I moved away from Chicago my vote doesn't count. Forgot to say: great podcast, as usual.
