Reason #368 - Free Time to Think of New Ideas

The Browns have no draft picks in the first three rounds, which gives team management plenty of time this weekend to begin implementing a master plan to put a retractable roof on Browns Stadium.

Reason #367 - Yankees Don't Love Bugs

The Indians are coming home for a weekend series against the Yankees. We may need bugs as our secret weapon again. Don't worry, we'd keep the roof off to let the bugs in.

Reason #366 - Postponements

Heavy rain canceled tonight's Indians game at Kansas City. So they are going to try to play a doubleheader tomorrow - unless the rain continues as expected. Postponements are bad for everyone - pitching staffs, fans, vendors, parking attendants, TV announcers, etc. Sorry, Kansas City, but until you lose entire homestands to blizzards, you don't need a retractable roof like we do.

Reason #364 - A Full Year of Reasons

We have now reached a milestone - a full year's worth of reasons. This is what I call a compelling case. If you see it any other way, you're just making excuses for inept venue planning.
