What does Jonathan have to say?



Ultimate Baseball Stadium?

I recently saw an article about the new stadium the Florida Marlins will call home starting next baseball season.  It is pretty spiffy and you don't even have to like baseball.  One of the articles I saw says the park will have a beach and swimming pool named La Playa. Yes.  There will be an actual beach at the ballpark.  There will be a huge food court as well as shop and other things to do besides watching baseball.  It sounds to me like baseball is just one of the stops in the massive entertainment complex. In fact, you don't even really ever have to watch the game at all.  You can go hang out on the beach, go shopping and then stay in one of the hotel rooms in the park and never even get close to the game. Honestly, it's a little sad.  Baseball is still my favorite sport, but I understand some people find it boring.  But maybe we don't need those people at the ballpark.  I understand the idea is to get more people to the park and even if they don't watch the game, they still spend money and keep baseball alive for the purists like me who actually want to WATCH THE GAME.    I'm starting to feel like baseball is that lame movie at the multiplex cinema that is shown once a night at 9:30pm in the smallest theatre possible. Do you think there will be a day when they create distractions for the actual ballplayers and coaches so they're not too bored from the game.  I can see it now: Announcer:  "There's a fly ball to left field.  Left fielder Jeff Jones is there, but he's playing a game of skeet ball for tickets which he can redeem for prizes at the indoor carnival.  I guess he won't be able to catch that ball." One more thing,  the Marlins' park will also have twin 600 gallon saltwater aquariums on both sides of the backstop.   Don't worry the fish will be protected by bulletproof glass from foul balls, but there may be a bigger problem.   The designers better think about creating some distractions for the fish!  They're located right on the field and might be bored to death if they actually have to pay attention to the game!

I'm very grateful to everyone who helped me move on. It's sad and surprising to see Sam Lyons go. My wife was even voting for him.

Most expensive dishes from around the world. ~Stevi
I never thought I would see the day where chocolate pudding showed up on a list of most expensive dishes. I feel like someone should contact Bill Cosby about this. More outrageiously priced food here; be ready to pick your jaw off the floor. ~Stevi
