Reason #284 - Home Playoff Games, Eventually

Sure, Green Bay had a playoff game today in heavy snow. But that doesn't mean we don't need a roof. Maybe we could make a better case if we had some occasional home playoff games.

Reason #283 - Progress

Jacobs Field has a new name - Progressive Field. You call that progress? Now, we need another sponsor for the roof.

Reason #282 - Indians Giveaways

The Indians' giveaway for April 12 is a stocking hat and the giveaway for May 10 is a fleece blanket. That's spring in Cleveland, where a roof over our heads would be more beneficial than a hat or a blanket.

Reason #281 - Indians Home Opener

I'm doing my Indians ticket draft tomorrow. Normally, everybody loves a home opener. But March 31 in Cleveland? Congratulations, you've just signed up for frostbite, much like someone might make a hotel reservation.

Reason #280 - Columbus Too

Forget Cleveland - maybe Columbus needs a dome for the Buckeyes, so they're ready for the Sugar Bowl or other major bowl game in perfect weather. Perhaps we have the beginnings here of a statewide ballot issue.

Reason #279 - Buckeyes in a Dome

I've said it before, but it bears repeating tonight - ALL the big games, Super Bowls, BCS championship games, etc. - seem to be played in domes and/or warm weather. NEVER outside in Cleveland in winter.

Reason #278 - Steelers Lose

Now that the Steelers have lost their rainy first-round playoff game, they're no better off than the Browns are. In fact, the Browns would be in a much better position if we had a roof in the works.
