Reason #186 - Brady Quinn's Dome

After today's loss, Notre Dame football is now 0-5. Their dome is tarnished. Brady Quinn needs a new dome to rally around.

Reason #185 - Fresh Air

Seattle's Safeco Field could be an interesting model. Even when the roof is closed, the ballpark is not fully enclosed. You still feel like you're outside, just more comfortable on cool, wet days. Would that compromise satisfy the dome detractors in Cleveland?

Reason #184 - Everybody Makes Mistakes

Despite being led by a defensive genius, the Browns have one of the worst defenses in the NFL. So even if our city leaders and team owners think they're really smart, they're not infallible. How else can you explain our roof-less stadiums?

Reason #183 - Homes Game Not at Home

The Indians are the home team for tonight's first game against the Mariners, even though the game is in Seattle. So, on September 26, we are making up a game on the road that was supposed to be played at home five and a half months ago, on April 9. You know there's a better way - roof, roof, roof!

Reason #182 - Winning Streaks

The Browns have not won even two games in a row, the most modest of winning streaks, in the same season in 61 games. Perhaps this is a "doomed" franchise unless it soon becomes a "domed" franchise.

Reason #181 - Stadium Sponsors

Neither Jacobs Field nor Browns Stadium has a paying name sponsor. Don't you think it would be easier and more financially rewarding to attract sponsors if we had all-weather facilities?

Reason #180 - Changing Seasons

Today is the first day of fall, which means I have posted reasons "why Cleveland needs a dome" daily through most of spring and all summer. My job is about to get a whole lot easier as we head into fall and winter. All of which proves Cleveland really does need a dome, or two.
