I'm not a gamer and the idea that e-sports would displace actual physical sports at a time of soaring obesity is... concerning.

But damn that's a cool building. Will look awesome looming over the Stevenson or glowing along the Green Line.

^^That's funny because it's not quite accurate - I think that stereotypical image of gamers is a dated mentality; most professional gamers that I've seen are skinny high school or college kids (or older), and they make a lot of money. Like in the millions. Jokes on us.

Ugh....Reading that article I saw another -https://www.chicagobusiness.com/commercial-real-estate/wrigleyville-developer-sues-movie-theater-operator that really depressed me. Was looking forward to that theater. Assumed they were in trouble.

Also, the newish Starbucks in the office building on Gallagher Way is closing permanently on Friday. That is a biggie.

What ever happened to the 'Chicago Blues Experience'?

I realize that there is a pandemic, but that project seemed to have stalled well before COVID was even an issue.

It appears that nobody has successfully launched a Blues-themed museum in Chicago as of yet...

True story: I cannot tell you how many times I've thought about the same damn thing. I would love for a Chicago Blue Museum to exist.

Tribune renovation is looking good. The thought of Tribune East, Parcel I and 400LSD rising together makes me extremely happy.

I think the Thompson Center should sell next year too, I wonder how long it will take them to release plans for the site.

I was going to be a track star but decided to play Xbox instead?

Esports is where people watch professional gamers compete with each other just like watching the NFL. Most esports spectators are not “gamers”... just like most who watch the NFL are not linebackers.
