Reason #28

Cleveland’s weekend weather is dry and in the 70s, so we could retract the roof - except that the schedule-makers have the Indians playing the Devil Rays in sunny, hot St. Petersburg, Florida, which, of course, has a dome.

Reason #27

We should have more foresight in Cleveland than Minnesotans, who are building a new ballpark for the Twins - no dome, no roof, although it will have heated grass to prevent snow buildup. The ballpark is expected to be ready for the 2010 season. With any luck, the Indians will open the 2010 season in Minnesota when it's 22 degrees and snowing.

Reason #26

Someday, MLB may decide to play the World Series at a neutral site - where there's warm, dry weather or a roof.

Reason #25

Because winter in Cleveland is not a season; it's an eternity.

Reason #24

Indoor motorcycle tricks! Motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel made a major jump in Houston's Astrodome in January 1971. But, until we have a dome, Kellen Winslow Jr. may not have anything to do in January, as the Browns finish another 4-12 or 5-11 season.

Reason #23

No more bad-weather baseball games where the team has to pay people for attending by giving them a voucher for a future game.

Reason #22

Another reason Jim Thome should not have left Cleveland for more money - we might have named it the Thome Dome.
