Today is 7-7-07, which is supposed to be the luckiest day in a century. If I win the lottery today by playing 7-7-7 or 7-7-0-7, I'm going to put the money toward a new dome. And, if everyone else who plays those numbers today contributes, we should have enough to get a great dome.

During one 24-hour period this holiday in Cleveland, 11 people were shot, six of whom died, and a woman was found stabbed to death. There are some problems that even a dome won't solve, and if we don't correct the urban decay and violence soon, not having a dome will be the least of our worries. Stop the madness before it stops all of us.

Putting a retractable dome on Cleveland Browns Stadium could cost around $100 million. With approximately 4 million people living in northeast Ohio, that's about 25 bucks for every man, woman and child. Sounds like a bargain to me. Let's get that post office box set up and the checks will start rolling in.

Earlier this week, Mike Hargrove, aka "The Human Rain Delay" when he was a player because he took so long between pitches, left his Mariners managerial job. A roof on Jacobs Field would eliminate "the other kind of rain delay" for Cleveland fans.

Last night's Indians game attracted a walk-up crowd of approximately 8,700 people - a result of fireworks night, a first-place team and great weather. Unfortunately, it also reminds us how far the season ticket base has fallen - people just don't want to get stuck with bad-weather games. Only a roof, not a ticket marketplace, is going to solve that problem.

When I started this site back on April 13, 2007, I said there were hundreds, maybe thousands, of reasons why Cleveland needs a dome or roof on at least one of its stadiums. Now, we've gone through the first 100 reasons - and I have not yet begun to write. Stay tuned as we come up with the next hundred.
