Try to Loot Loot Loot for the home team in some other city. I know we put a target on our head by building a convention center, the smell of an easy-money town reached as far as Atlanta... or perhaps even farther. This is the worst possible deal for Wilmington and all those lovely events you mention will cost us even more, because we have to rent out "our" stadium from the the Atlanta Braves.

I find it inconceivable that anyone in Wilmington would vote to have their taxes raised to buy something that won't be theirs! It's like renting a suit to bury your grandfather in!
