    looks pretty cool, although still, anytime i think of a "sail" building, i'll think of the Burj Al Arab

    In may I went to Tropicana field, I thought it was pretty sweet, alot like the dome with a restaurant and bar in center field where you could watch the game and eat of drink. They had lots of attractions for the kids in the concourses to look at and they were all free. Also I like that they had free stadium parking, you exited the free way and you were at the ballpark. Traffic in the area was horrible though.

    I also went to a Dolphins game in Miami, that place was a total dump. It's a football stadium, open air. The concourses feel like your walking through a parking ramp. The blue angels did fly over the stadium which was pretty cool and it was so hot that many of the women wore bathing suits, which was super cool. ;D

    One idea that I have heard for the Tampa bay club(which has the lowest revenue in baseball) is to move the stadium closer to disney world. That would instantly give the team much better revenues. I do feel bad for them being in the same division as the Yankees and Boston. Their ticket prices double anytime the yankees or boston are playing.

    PS. That thing is ugly as sin, I wonder how many people it holds, doesn't look like too many.

    Wow that does look pretty cool! But wouldn't there be an issue with the wind? Seriously.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Screw sailboats! PP.O does not need a sailboat! They should design an amazing submarine!

    If they can build a sailboat stadium, they can build a Viking ship stadium.

    Tropicana Field is typically ranked towards the bottom of all MLB stadiums, it's no wonder why moving into a new stadium like this near Disney World could be beneficial for the team.
    A stadium like this would surely attract tourists.
    Who the hell wants to sit indoors to watch baseball!?
    This sailboad design would keep rain off people and yet still provide somewhat of an outdoor feel.

    Hence why there are zero waves and zero surfers in Florida.

    I sorta like the design... at least it's something new.
