Tear down Wrigley?

Happy New Year all!

Thumbing over the papers on Christmas Eve, I read an article that equals my sentiments. Ingrem of the Daily Herald had a ditty on his feelings about replacing Wrigley.

For many the thought of replacing an icon of this nature is sacrilegious. For me though, go for it. As many of us have been to other ballparks, I think we all could agree that Wrigley lags far behind in modern conveniences.

The girders that get in the way, the long lines in the restrooms (unless you hang in the sky boxes). I have always wondered why not duplicate Wrigley, only removing the arcadic features. Keep the vines, keep the brick walls, and keep the same field basically. But for goodness sakes, improve the facility for us, the fans.

This idea poses many questions. Rebuilt on the same site? Leave Chicago for the outskirts of the city? Who would pay for it? Keep the name? Would this affect attendance? As you can see, these questions would conjure up many deep feelings amongst us fans.

I have my own ideas and thoughts. In a perfect world I would duplicate the exterior, the playing field and improve the stands. As well as allowing for more seats to be filled. I would also (for totally selfish reasons) move the team west of Chicago to whatever town that would be most convenient for transportation.

So on a quiet and non eventfull day in Cub land, I thought I would throw this out to see what other ideas that could be offered. Or maybe many of you would just say, leave it alone.

Again a very best Happy New Year to all and many blessings for all with the new year upon us.
