  • Hey Cubs Fans!!!!!!!

    What is the deal with those buildings across the street from Wrigley Field? Do I see bleachers on the rooftops? Is that code compliant?

    While I can't admit to watching Cubs games on a regular basis...I did see the Yankees at Wrigley over the weekend. George...I immediately thought the same thing. I don't know how long those rooftop bleachers have been there, but it certainly raised questions in my mind. I just can't imagine how they could conform to codes. It's not like they did it in anonymity....the games are broadcast to millions.

    Does that look like an accident waiting to happen...or what?

          The bleachers on top of the apartments across the street have been there for several years now. There's a lot of wrangling going on over "product theft" and the Cubs trying to get a piece of the pie from the building owners. Those "bleachers" were made famous by Harry spouting off in his drunken stupors. I don't know about them meeting code specs, 'cause it seems like the city and the Cubs would rather make money off of them first.....

          Choi suffered a concussion when he hit the baseline. He was unconcious for a couple of minutes, and they brought the ambulance right onto the field and took him off. Just before they left, the umpire had Dusty give the ball Choi caught on the play to him in the ambulance. They put him on the 15 day disabled list today.

            Fans have been watching games from those rooftops for as long as I can remember. The bleachers have been around in some form for at least, oh probably ten years or so. The scrubs (I'm a Sox fan) put up "wind screens" to obscure the fans view. They didn't last long.

            The scrubs would like to get a piece of that pie, but for now their owner, the Tribune Company, settles for operating it's own ticket brokering service. That's right. They scalp their own tickets.

              First things first...I HATE THE CUBS.. ahh much better. The city is well aware of the rooftop bleachers. They have become big business over the past 10 years or so. As far as I know, they are inspected by the city and have to meet certain standards, such as having acessible washrooms and a means of egress. And no, Engine 78 does not have bleachers on top of their firehouse.
