There's only one thing that could lead to Mayor Richard M. Daley losing re-election as Mayor of Chicago on this plane of existence, and that is if he continues this fight he has going on with the Tribune Company and orders Wrigley Field shut down:
City officials ordered a new round of inspections at Wrigley Field on Thursday and threatened to block Monday night's game if the team can't prove the ballpark is safe.
Buildings Commissioner Stan Kaderbek said he ordered the review after a reporter noted during an interview Wednesday that some repairs at the ballpark were "shoddy."
"I said that certainly the reports we received from the Cubs don't indicate that," Kaderbek said, but he said he was concerned enough that he ordered new inspections.
Let's be very clear, this isn't about Wrigley Field being unsafe. The Mayor, a White Sox fan by the way, is gonna get his head handed to him if he screws around and causes the Cubs to miss out on the playoffs becuase he can't take a little criticism. It's not like he hasn't done something like this before, ever heard of Meigs Field?
In other news, Greg Maddox won number 301.
