Re: Photos from St. Louis Trip

Hey Al - sorry I missed your post about St. Louis....although I've lived here all my life, I haven't really ventured out to see all of the great local places that make us unique (other than the Arch, brewery tour, etc.)...if anyone's in the neighborhood before April 7, 2006, feel free to look me up for a tour of the new Bush Stadium before it officially opens for opening day (unless I completely lose my sanity and patience before the job finishes up )

Re: Photos from St. Louis Trip

Here's a question for you, Peter: How come you guys need three stadiums (baseball, hockey, football)? Couldn't you have one or two, and schedule the games better??

We walked past the old Busch stadium at night on our way to BB's. They sure are working fast on the demolishing.

LOL....well, Al, the same question could be asked of virtually anything in our society...# of bathrooms in a house, # of cars, # of this or that.

Of course, the severe make-do-with-what-you-have in me would have thought they could share a football/baseball facility...and they in fact used to do that with Busch Stadium before the Cardinals flew South one last time to Phoenix...however, you know how it is with politicians wanting to spend money and greedy sports team owners wanting to get a favorable lease rate on facilities.

As far as hockey goes, the venue must be much, much, much smaller than what a Football facility would hold..or else it's just a lot of wasted space. Also, while I'm not claiming to know for sure, I assume that you need to keep the air colder to keep the ice cold, which would cost more...plus not too many people want to freeze their a** off in an enclosed facility to watch football. I remember going to a St. Louis Steamers professional soccer game at the old Kiel Center (where the Blues hockey team played) for a birthday party back when they were around, and I will never forget how cold the place was.

The demo is going a little bit faster than planned...although it's not like they give any of us subcontractors a break. Sigh....this project has created so much stress, aggrivation, and complete/utter disbelief that it's the perfect incentive to crave Early Retirement like nothing else.
