    But that picture is at least six years old. It was taken before the bleachers were expanded for the 2006 season.

    Looking closer at the picture, it seems to be some sort of hybrid. The bleachers aren't expanded, yet the Captain Morgan Club (sticking out of the park on the bottom right), which was added in 2009, is there. Very weird!

    ^ I see in that pic that part of the outer concrete wall (lower right corner of the photo) is there. I thought the entire outer wall had been removed. Did they just start restoring it?

    Wow that is a clear pic! I like both in different ways though.
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

    I could have taken shots from all locations on google, but I was just caught off guard on how sharp they had gotten. I like bing's a lot though.

    Sounds like Cubs and the city may finally be close to getting a deal done for the rehab plan for Wrigley:

    This reminds me too much of Fenway's monster seats. Do they have specific tickets for this or first come first serve?

    ^ AFAIK, you have to buy tickets in groups for the new section.

    Funny thing is - that house has always had a billboard on the roof. Even before there were "Wrigley Rooftops," there was a billboard. I think if you look at some of the earliest pictures of Wrigley - maybe even going back to the Weeghman Park days - you'll see a "Baby Ruth" sign on the roof.

    Edith Bunker: Well, I'm sorry, Archie, how was I to know? I thought it was a religious picture, "Cardinal Knowledge!"
