Chicago Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts got shelled by some of the inquisitors at a City Club appearance, wanting to know among other things, how dare he want to make some money off his investment by putting a--gasp!--an commercial sign in left field.
Sample the questions in the Chicago Tribune story then be sure to read the comments as some folks go off the cliff. Stuff about mucking up the shrine, and so forth. It's all too precious.
The point of a Major League Baseball team, I thought, was baseball. The "experience" of going to the ballpark, I guess, has become more important in some quarters. Maybe that's why the Cubs haven't had a winner in a century.
