At KC’s Rockfest, ‘you gotta get loud’ — and muddy

Rockfest, a huge single-day music festival at Liberty Memorial, puts a loud charge into its 50,000 fans. While the rain stayed away, the fourth-wettest May on record had left the grounds moist and messy, requiring organizers to dump truckloads of mulch on the grounds. By late afternoon, the place was less memorial than mud bowl.

Wrigley Field: one game, five home runs

One of the first things big league ballplayers look at when they walk on the field are the flags. (Actually, the first thing big league ballplayers look at might be the attractive women in the stands, but I know the flags are in there somewhere.) Ballplayers want to know which way the wind is blowing and how that will change the game. At least the smart big league ballplayers do and smart big league fans should do the same. Especially in Wrigley Field.
