It looks like the ocean ate Mardi Gras and vomited it all over center field.

The announcers can't even keep from laughing at how dopey that is

That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

Really? That is the stupidest thing you have ever seen? I thought it was dumb, but kind of campy. So bad it's good. I'd probably like it a lot if I was a Marlins fan.

Yeah, but she's pretty hot.

I think people said the same thing about our exploding scoreboard in 1960 that they're saying about this in 2012.

I think it is pretty cool. It looked like an eye sore when I first saw it, but I like it. I'm glad the Marlins don't have a new cookie cutter park.

Yes. Yes, she is. :cool:

What was up with the guy holding the Infante sign at the end?

That "sculpture" reminds me of ShowBiz Pizza for some odd reason.

That needs to be on a t-shirt! :D:

Yes, quite tacky, but I kind of like it... it's different, and different can be good.

Well put.

I also heard of a similar uproar to the video board in the Astrodome that would play a cowboy themed cartoon in flashing colored lights after a home run. The opposing players even complained about that, akin to the Sox scoreboard in the 60s.

Yeah, that was pretty weird... Your limo is ready, Mr. Infante.

All that I can say is...thank heavens that's a big ballpark. Hopefully it means we won't see that too many times this year. :D:

Why did they paint their park pea green?

Explains the sound of the pea-brain rattle as she turned her head.

TV didn't do this monstrosity any justice. It needs its theme music blasting too!!!!

Yeah, you put that Victoria's Secret model in her place on an internet message board! Way to go bro!

Why did they paint their park pea green?

Honestly that is the only thing about the park I don't like. I think the fish tank is kind of cool, I don't mind the HR sculpture though I will admit it's not my cup of tea, but the color scheme of the park is awful. I feel like if I was there for 3 hours I would start to get a headache.

I thought it was cool enough, no different than exploding scoreboards, Bernie the Brewer, Chief Noc-A-Homa, etc.

If they hadn't painted part of the interior green, put up the homerun display and installed aquariums people would notice the park basically looks like a convention center with a baseball field on the floor.

That's basically what all the retractable roof stadiums look like to me. Although Seattle is open-air and Houston has a few gimmicks.
