UPGRADED IVY: Kenney was asked how future renovations and improvements to Wrigley Field could compare to U.S. Cellular Field, and he said, "Jerry is like Phyllis Diller: he gets a facelift about every three years down on the South Side. We actually don’t have a public source of financing, so we don’t have a hotel tax to rebuild our stadium ever year. We’ve got to find it in our own pockets so it’s a little more limited.” Kenney added there is "no question going forward we need to redo our clubhouse space and training space. Talking to some of the prospective owners, that’s always high on my list of projects" ("Chicago Tribune Live," CSN Chicago, 9/17).
