One bottle of beer in the fridge.
I was at the store today and everybody that is around the Stadium is up in arms.
And if you think that is bad wait til the out of ‘town people get here.
If good fences make good neighbors, bad fences mak a lot of enemies.
I propose that what ought to be done is a silent protest. Since they choose to segregate their tournament from the rest of the world, let’s segregate their vendor from the rest of the world.
NO ONE SHOULD BUY A THING FROM THE VENDOR INSIDE THE FENCE! EVERYONE SHOULD CHOOSE TO BOYCOT THOSE VENDORS BECAUSE OF THE ACTIONS OF WHOEVER IS TO BLAME, AND I AM NOT SURE THAT WE WILL EVER FIND OUT WHO IS TO BLAME.
BUT LET THEM SUFFER FOR THEIR ACTIONS.
Omaha is not an armed camp. A fence that has not been needed for 60 years is not necessary today.
If I was the mayor of Omaha, I would not like my legacy to be that I put a fence around Rosenblatt Stadium
As if he will have a legacy.
Just one more step in taking the College World Series away from the people and especially away from the people of the City of Omaha. Take the tickets away from them now rather than waiting to take them away with your seat licenses.
Can somebody just be up front here.
Those of us who love the College World Series and love the experience see the fence as a metaphor for the barrier that will be driven between the college baseball fan and the College World Series. The powers that be care no more for the fan on the street than they care for the student athlete or the little vendor.
Fences are about control and power and not about friendship and a feeling of being welcome.
This is not about bitterness. It is about anger.
We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, endowed by the Creator with certain inalienable rights, among them the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness…….
The right not to be lied to. The right not to be shut out from what we have done for thirty or more years. The right to come and go as we please.
This is not a safety issue. If they want to address a safety issue they need to address the 2011 College World Series wherein the Stadium is but 20 feet away from the street and the threat of a Oklahoma City type attack is imminent. This Stadium has been n safe for over 60 years and to throw a fence up on the eve of the closing of the Stadium is another huge waste of money on the part ;of the city and a slap in the face of all the regular College World Series Goers that have made this event the great event that it is.
I am not that grown up or up to date. I am a simpler creature, tied to more primitive patterns and cycles. I need to believe that something lasts forever, that baseball lasts forever……..
Forever ended yesterday
A fence ended it.
