Not foreclosure. It isn't going anywhere. If it fails, which it has, then Hoffman Estates takes it over and operates it per the original agreement.

More info here: http://thedeadhub.com/hoffman-estate...-sears-centre/

I live right across the highway from there.

I gotta agree, $100 for a strikeforce ticket is spendy. I paid $100 for a ticket to a roy jones jr fight back in the day, w/ Bernard Hopkins on the undercard. I can't say that it was worth it. a live fight atmosphere is pretty cool, but you can't see much even if you have good seats.

Yep, what's done is done. The one I went to, I was just pissed off I couldn't see any action. Really for viewing TV coverage is the best, but it's cool to be there every now and then. Have a good time.
