    Of what will happen when new Stadium and Braves open here in 2014.
    Catch the wave of new attractions.

    Here, let me help you there

    “See Tom? just the expectation of having a ball park down town has already started the economic impact element of this proposed deal. These two restaurants alone are looking at several million in sales. Don’t fight it. See you opening day 2014″

    How’d I do?

    The fact that the DoD built Liberty ships in Wilmington indicates that the proposed stadium (to open 70 years later)would be a viable entity. The economic impact using government funds continues !!!!!!!
    If the DoD saw how ripe this area is it must be true…..

    Oh we could have way TOO MUCH FUN with this

    Best Regard

    the ball park proponents are not all over this as clear evidence if the city builds a ball park, they will come.

    Not that it is factual, but I thought they would comment on it.

  • SurfCityTom says:

    I’m picturing the baseball attendees, who may have imbibed a tad too much walking along the river to these sites and falling in the river.

    Should make good feeding for the gators.

    And I wish he would get it straight; the Braves are not coming. It’s a lower class A team from Lynchburg which MIGHT come here. If the voters are too blinded by the sheen from the Mayor’s hairdo.

    LETS JUST WAIT AND SEE HOW ALL THIS PLAYS OUT. I THINK THE BALL PARK WILL BE SUPPORTED BY THE TAX PAYERS, AS WILL THE COMVENTION CENTER WE JUST HAD TO HAVE..RESTURANTS DOWNTOWN AND ELSE WHERE ARE CLOSING ALL THE TIME. TIME WILL TELL.
