Ferlie and I went to see the Nashville Sounds play for the first time last night. We had a pretty good time, despite that fact that the Sounds' performance was absymal. Of course, I spent a lot of my childhood playing and watching baseball in Midland, Texas, which was then home to the AA Midland Cubs (now the Rockhounds, an A's affiliate), so I have an affection for badly played baseball. There has been a lot of talk about building a new baseball stadium for the Sounds, but I hope that it doesn't happen. The Sounds didn't even fill 1/5 of the seats, and that was with hundreds of tickets given away free. Greer Stadium, the Sounds current abode, suits them fine, and any plans to build new digs are based on 4 things. 1) graft 2) greed 3) stupid fan-love 4) nothing else.

If you haven't been, give it a whirl. The tickets are cheap, the parking is free, and even bad baseball is better than watching a game of Commie Kickball (soccer, for those of you who don't know Rogers).
