Crappity crap crap crap

Chris just sent me an email that informed that Tiger Stadium is going to be torn down. They got that backwards. They should tear down that horrible new stadium and then do what they should have done years ago, refurbish Tiger Stadium. I guess it's not to be. I always thought there were three things in the sports world that were untouchable: Tiger Stadium, Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. Thankfully the people in Chicago and Boston have done what they could to save those fields and change the structures enough to satisfy whatever desire for change that exists also. Putting seats atop the Green Monster at Fenway is a great example of modernizing an old park instead of destroying like in Detroit. Probably the biggest reason Tiger Stadium wasn't saved was the fact that Detroit doesn't have a vibrant center city like Chicago. Detroit has areas that are a wastelands and they didn't have the attendance at Tiger Stadium they needed in order to keep using it.
