How about the Biloxi Bats? As in those flying in the belfry, because the current concept of the Biloxi baseball stadium is a tad more than batty.
It has taken plenty of nerve to pull off this one.
Calm down, I happen to like baseball, but build it somewhere else.
Consider the proposed and probable location -- not on less expensive and more available land far north of the beach, but right on U.S. 90, in a heavily congested traffic and storm-susceptible area.
In addition to the incredible amount of money this expected tourism booster will cost, please consider this: This baseball stadium will rise on the current parking acreage (shaded by more than a few large trees) for the employees of the Beau Rivage across the way, so the city will have to build yet another structure for these employees to park. And, will the stadium property be sufficiently large enough to have its own parking spaces?
Let's see here, is it "Tear up Paradise to build a parking lot" or tear up a green parking space to build a stadium with parking and yet another parking lot?
To paraphrase Ogden Nash who parodied Alfred Joyce Kilmer:
I think that I shall never see
A stadium lovely as a tree.
Indeed, unless such commerce palls,
I'll never see a tree at all.
I'm glad they are on the other end of the beach.
