The News Just Keeps Coming

Ain't that peculiar.

I remember, long before the big vote that finally authorized funds for a new stadium, going to a park in Mesa where like minded fans met with Michael Bidwill to discuss building a new stadium in Mesa. It would be an uphill battle, though, because local voters were so averse to using taxpayer money to finance projects for private entities.

Now comes word that Mesa voters have approved an $84 Million dollar bond issue for a project at the same site. I think I see what's happening here. It wasn't that the people of Mesa were against spending money, they just didn't want the Cardinals in their back yard.

Bully for them. Thanks to their pigheadedness, my side of town got this beautiful stadium. Hey Mesa! Thanks!
