Anyone else hear this nonsense about Walter E. Smith field? They were talking on WSCR this morning about Walter E. Smith paying for naming rights to Wrigley. BEtter not happen...really. How much more is the Trib Co. gonna try and squeeze out of a rock?

....As I listen to WSCR talk about this Walter E. Smithe field thing, I'm thinking more and more that this is an early April Fools. It's gotta be. I'm not seeing or hearing it anywhere else.

Yes....Yes it is. Thank God.
