Arlo & Janis (2/3/11)

Sometime Tuesday night, as the great big honkin’ blizzard of 2011 was gathering strength, a big chunk of Wrigley Field blew away in the wind. Some people might see a 98-year-old stadium with serious maintenance issues and say, “junk it,” but the Chicago Cubs will never be part of that crowd. As owners and primary tenants of Wrigley Field, the team would gain very little (and would perhaps lose quite a bit) by building a brand new, state-of-the-art stadium. If fans want electronic scoreboards (or even roofs that don’t crumble), they can go to any other major league ballpark. If they want nostalgia, they’ll need to visit the north side of Chicago.
