Some People's Kids: June 1st

June 1st

According to the the Star Tribune, construction canbegin on the new Twins Stadium on that date. Today Hennepin county presented a judge with a check for 13.75 million. So on June 1st, unless something happens that totally catches everyone off guard, ground will break on the new stadium.
13.75 million is what the county thinks they should get the land for, but they will have to go through a arbitration meeting on the final price of the land. This extra money is what the Pohlad's have offered to put forward to see that this stadium gets built. If they didn't put this money forward it would be very pathetic on their part, seeing as it would basically be throwing about 300 million down the drain.
I am sure that as this project goes, as all projects do, it will have it's share of problems and slow downs (hoping for nothing like Big Blue in Milwaukee), but on April 1st, 2010 we will be sitting outside watching a baseball game in the rain, snow, sun, sleet, wind, cold, etc, to be honest as long as it's outside sign this guy up, I'll be there.

I'm diggin' the German commentary. I think the guy was explaining how American light beer and Brats not made according to German customs will lead to disasters such as this. Stupid Wisconsin.
