Just noticed the NATO/G8 Summits and Occupy Chicago Riots are scheduled the same weekend as the Cubs-Sox series at Wrigley. While not even beginning to process what havoc this will mean to the NHL and NBA Playoffs, remember that the G8 Summits forced the Blue Jays to play their home series against the Phillies in Philadelphia a couple years ago.

For what it's worth, during the 1968 Democratic Convention, the Cubs were on the road, and the White Sox played their homestand at County Stadium, thus avoiding the invasion of Abbie Hoffman.

This is all kinds of awesome. Hopefully the White Sox have to travel across town and their bus gets overturned by crazed protesters who them maim the entire team and then 40 years later they'll make a bad movie about it starring Matthew McConaughey.

Did anyone just notice that his name has 'ghey' at the end? That's funny.

My God, the movie potential is amazing.  Call it "Don't Stop Believin'".  Heck, maybe your beloved Glee cast would sing on the movie soundtrack.  I'm starting to feel a movie poster coming on...

Too lazy to look. Is Milwaukee playing at home and thus not in the poll?

Brewers host the Twins. Thus, Target Field is available. I didn't check on the urinal cake II.

The answer is Wrigley Field!

I think we should still riot and loot and set shit off here in Chicago regardless. Why should we miss out on all the fun?
