You've gotta be kidding me!

Lawyer plans to sue MLB over Minute Maid Park roof mandate
A Houston lawyer is planning to file a class action lawsuit against Major League Baseball and Commissioner Bud Selig for insisting the roof at Minute Maid Park be open for Game 3 of the World Series -- forcing baseball fans to sit in "frigid" temperatures in the 50s in stead of the pleasant 70s.

Acording to KTRK in Houston:
She claims some fans got sick because they weren't given adequate notice that the roof would be open and therefore, weren't prepared for temperatures in the 50's. Some think the lawsuit is a joke, but [Lisa] Sechelski says she's serious.

"They expected to go and enjoy a game instead they were met with conditions they weren't prepared for," said Sechelski.

I'm sure this will be laughed out of court. At least I hope so...

The lawsuit is ridiculous and the lawyer should be committed (like most lawyers). However, Bud Selig should also be committed for insisting that the roof be open. That to me is ridiculous too. I guess he wanted to take home field advantage away from the Astros. Selig needs to start worrying about the serious issues of baseball, like steroids and low attendance numbers.
