Can't please all of the people all of the time

This is for everyone who has been ripping the NFL for failing to move the Ravens/Texans game to Baltimore or a neutral site, since most of the complaints have included a nod to Major League Baseball for moving two games between the Astros and Cubs to Miller Park in Milwaukee.

That obviously seemed like a great idea...to everyone but Houston manager Cecil Cooper, who quickly realized that Miller Park is easier to get to for lot of Cubs fans than Wrigley Field. Cubs fans have been known to take the place over when their team plays the Brewers in much the same way Red Sox fans and Yankees fans do at Camden Yards.

"It's like a Cub home game," Cooper told reporters before last night's game. "Only they're not the 'home' team, we are. I'm not happy about that. I need to tell the commissioner that. I will tell him that."

Maybe it wouldn't have made a bit of difference, since Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano pitched a no-hitter, but it is proof that no matter what the NFL or Major League Baseball did to respond to the potential ravages of Hurricane Ike, somebody was not going to be happy.

"It's not the best of circumstances, but when you put it against the backdrop of what a lot of people in Houston are going through right now, it's sort of minimized in that regard," Astros GM Ed Wade told the Associated Press. "In a perfect world, the storm doesn't hit Houston and have the degree of significance that it had and we play these games at home."
