The choice concluding anecdote from Debra Pickett‘s exploration of the Latin School soccer field debacle in Chicago magazine‘s December issue (the story’s not online, sorry):

So at the beginning of this year’s season, with the field still under construction and the legal skirmishes ongoing, the Latin School boys’ soccer team was back to playing on Lincoln Park’s other artificial turf field, off of Lake Shore Drive at Montrose. On a crisp fall afternoon, they had the field to themselves. Their scheduled opponents, Guerin Prep, of River Grove, had gone to the other field–the one everybody now thinks of as the Latin School soccer field–and, after looking around for the Latin players for about 45 minutes, gave up and went home.
