    Wrigley Field Marquee Going Purple

    Looks like they are currently in the process of painting the Wrigley Field marquee purple for the Northwester/Illinois game at Wrigley this Saturday.

    Gross, wrong and ugly. This is messed up from every angle. Don't like the purple and pimpin out the exterior. But worse yet, have you seen the field? The wall and dormant ivy is just waiting for someone to snap their neck on.

    Fhe endzone back line looks to be exactly the wall. The field goal post is right on the wall, so it should be exactly on the back line. Plus the fieldgoals at that end, if close, will crash off bricks and be hard to tell if it is good or not.

    I can see it now did it bounce off brick or did it bounce off goal post. Or both.

    Just don't like it. On top of that the dammage to the field for the Cubs.

    This whole game is going to be a disaster. Someone is going to run into the brick and be seriously injured.

    Interesting way they have the goalposts attached to the wall ... on Twitpic

    Eh, its not like its the first time a football game has been played in Wrigley Field. The Bears played there for 50 years, and until about 8 years ago it held the record for the most NFL games played in a single stadium.

    That doesn't appear to be paint. It looks like they are putting some sort of a mask or cover on it to make it purple.

    I'm pretty sure they had the field set up differently when the Bears played there though but becasue the Cubs have added more seats, the way they did it back then wasn't possible.

    They have put padding up, but yes, someone could still get hurt.

    Appears to be some pretty heavy duty padding on the bricks out there.

    from the pictures it looks very similar, except to the opposite field.

    Yeah they used to run it north to south. When we took a tour of Wrigley Field in 2005 they said they actually had to put dirt in the visitors dugout just to make it work...

    But still, padding can only do so much when you're running full speed and can't stop.

    Hopefully they have a net behind those goal posts.
