    They'll need a dome with the world's most powerful air conditioner.

    Yeah, but the Raiders play in Fall and Winter.

    Baseball is June, July, August, when Las Vegas matches the temperature on the Sun.

    As long as the A's don't paint theirs black, it should be OK :p

    Though they might go with green :ack:

    I might try to see a series in Oakland this year.

    I saw tickets in the first rows behind the dugout going for $80.

    :lol:

    Willson Contreras pimped a walk so hard that he ended a man's career.

    Both their previous & current parks were/are open, though the current one has "breathable" seats.

    I wonder if a retractable roof stadium would be a better idea, just in case.

    He's a devout Southern Baptist. He and reality are not frequently on the same page.

    Is that an homage to Area 51??? [​IMG]

    If so, I might rank it as a great name along w/ the Trash Pandas. ;)

    The TRUTH is out there.

    Yep.

    But my info is out of date. They're called the Aviators now. :(

    Oakland bent over backwards for the A's but it was never going to be enough, MLB has wanted them out of there for years, anyone remember the "blue-ribbon committee"?

    I applaud Oakland for not surrendering to the major sports leagues.

    Then they got a funny way of showing it. :lol:

    Dignity and an empty sack is worth the sack.

    John Fisher wanted the people of Oakland to build him a billion-dollar mallpark for free.

    Fuck him and fuck the A's for trying to extort the city and county for a free stadium.

    Yeah, it's pretty much a sure deal that the new stadium is gonna have a roof.

    Edit: Apparently the A's are going to play at the Aviators' ballpark (which, interestingly, has no naming rights, it's just called Las Vegas Ballpark) until the new stadium is completed. Linky
