I believe Ditka called it the Roller Dome. As in Rollerskates.

Regardless what you call it, it had to be the absolute worse place I've been to watch a baseball game. But, the visit to this hell-hole was sweet with a Sox victory.

Unfortunately, as a transplanted SOX fan, I've seen games at the dump too often. It is indeed the worst ballpark in the majors. They turn the a/c up when the Twinks are batting and off when the opposition steps to the plate.

The interesting thing up here is that the locals actually like the place. They think it's cool when a fly ball is lost in the lights or a fair ball hits a speaker or their team hits a little league homer off the "baggie" in right field..

I hate the team, the fans and the park... just contract them and get it over with!

The Metrodome is not a major league ballpark. It was essentially built by the Vikings and they get all the luxury suite and concession revenue.

Twins fans are by far the WORST MLB fans around. I've been to games which have gone to extra innings, and after the third out in the bottom of the ninth, the place empties out like a fire drill. Twink fans arrive late, leave early and are the most easily distracted fans I've ever seen. Of course the smug locals will tell you about what a great place it it - how it was built under budget for 50 million, and how Dave Kingman's ball went through one of the holes in the roof and still hasn't come down.

The metrodump has to be the only ball park where the wave is still considered hip. The Metrodome ambiance reminds me of a low budget carnival-- bring on the fat ladies, Lobster boy, and the circus geeks biting the heads off of chickens. It just fits the rube mentality of Minnesota.

Sounds like paradise compared to the drunken frat boys up at the Urinal. I've never seen so many mindless apes get such a kick out of throwing empty beer cups around.

Which reminds me. I was taking the Red Line southbound last Friday when that jagbag "Whoo-Whoo" got on around the Berwyn stop. He looked like he was going to cry because no one was paying him any attention at all.

In conclusion, Dome = bad, Urinal = worse. Both = garbage.
