I think with the reality of a new ballpark downtown it would mean higher ticket prices and people seem to bitch about that, but if you want a winner you have to pay for one. Corprate tickets would def. go up if the location was better. Arrowhead is where it should be b/c its setup for tailgating and an 8 game schedule. For 82 games, a Wrigley, St Louis setup is so much better.
If you told me they could be a replica of the K downtown by the Sprint Center and the new entertainment district and the only two differences would be wider concourses and more bathrooms I'd take it in a heartbeat.
Anyone else hear that the new entertainment district just approved open containers- you can move from bar to bar with booze!
See, I know alot of people that hate going to the city.. I know I will not go more if it is moved to downtown... That is why I am so glad about Zona Rosa and the establishments moving up here.. Tom Foolerie's, Gran Falloon, O'doyds(sp?), Hoolihans, Pete's Inn,one or two others being built and a slew of smaller shittier bars in the northland.. Only reason why I go to downtown area is the Point, and Westport beach club...
