At Long Last

After ten years, the new outdoor Twins stadium in downtown Minneapolis is finally a reality, after the ballpark financing bill passed both houses of the Minnesota legislature this morning. I look forward to one day going to games, and taking my kids. And until then, I look forward to watching the construction from my dad's office, which is right above the site, as often as I can between now and 2010.

At the beginning of this decade, there were three things I was hoping to see in baseball that I hadn't seen before: a Red Sox championship, a team in Washington, DC., and a new outdoor stadium in Minneapolis. And now, somehow, all three are a reality.
