WATB

Sid Hartman, yet again. Waaahhh!!!

Seriously, this column could almost be a parody, it is so bad. Guess what, Sid? Pointing out that Bud Selig wants a new stadium in Minnesota is not going to get you friends, because most people in this state, for or against a stadium, think that Selig can go @#*%! himself. Doing the opposite of what Selig wants is a good plan in my book.

It's interesting that there is no shortage of millionaires that want to buy the team, but there is an extreme shortage of adult millionaires who will stop acting like babies and actually build themselves a playground for their new toy. Waaahhhh!!!

According to Sid, "A new owner might come in here and say: 'I am not going to contribute one nickel to building a new stadium. Build it with tax dollars like they have done in other places or this team is going to move.'" Hey, New Owner: don't let the door hit you on the way out, jackass. Apparently, MLB's argument for public funding of stadiums is that everybody else is doing it. "But Mommy, Jimmy has a cool new bike, why can't I get one?" Waaahhhh!!!!

Holding taxpayers hostage is not a reasonable deal. Pretending that Pohlad is doing the state a favor by offering to pay for 25% of a stadium is ridiculous. Grow up.

Holy shit, I actually agree with what you said. Wow, it's my first agreement with an idiot liberal. Now what should I do, spray paint someone wearing fur?

Seriously, if Billionaire Owner #47 came by and said "It's in my own best interest to build a new stadium, so I'm gonna do it. If you (John Q Public) want to chip in and make it a pretty stadium that integrates well into the surounding community, great." That would be fine. I would be more than happy to get behind that. That way, the public has a say in how the large, skyline-changing, traffic-diverting building affects their community without being welfare for rich old guys.
