...Tampa Bay has the best-looking artificial turf in baseball!!!

And I'm not just saying that because it's named Tropicana Field either!

Philly has the same thing.

The thought never crossed my mind!

Speaking of that, the Eagles had their preseason open canceled because of that very same turf. It is a nice surface, but it helps to fill the groud beneath it.

Well the Vet is one of the worse stadiums in sports.

Hmm... maybe the corporate naming rights for the renovated home of the Sox could make Comiskey "Gatorade Field"? The corporate headquarters will be downtown and Pepsico has the pockets to pay for it.

Nothing like starting a rumor, huh?

Along with Comiskey for now. Hopefully the renovations will change that.

How do you think Rob Gallas would promote this PHG?

Yes, the Vet is garbage at best. New stadiums plans are in the works and should be ready for play by 2003 for the Phillies, and I am not sure when the new stadium for the Eagles is supposed to be ready. The shame is, I'll have moved out by 2003 for college, so I won't get to see a game in stadium that is not a dump.

I'm sure the man that gave us "Dog Day" and "Flying Elvis Night" would have something good.

Maybe a meet PHG day?

Or a day where the first 10,000 fans get a baseball card with a picture of you.

"Bribe the WSI Umpire Day" ought to be very popular--and profitable. For me anyway.

you ever see the NE Huskers football field with their turf. it is just like tropicana with the fake grass look. i think they were one of the first to use this new kind of artificial turf. it looks really good and almost real. plus, the players love it.
