The Stadium

I heard on the radio today that they're going to tear down "the rest" of Tiger Stadium.

I was unlucky enough to be in Detroit when the tear-down started; hence the picture. The whole deal has taken less than a year—we were there during August 2008.

I remember when the Renaissance Center, the Ren-Cen, was a ritzy mall. It is now, of course, GM HQ. I remember Trammell as an All-Star, not as a failed and fired manager.

Tiger Stadium was built in 1912, the same year that Fenway went up. How would you (folks in my state of MA) feel if the last bit of Fenway was being torn down?
