I'm sort of bummed that the blue isn't the National league one, though I suspect that may be because the orange is different than the Mets new blue alts, and since they're hosting it they may sell more...
Five people have been killed an one injured in a shooting overnight in Manchester, Ill., KSDK-TV reports.
Details of the shootings were not immediately clear, but WLDS radio quotesIllinois State Police as confirming that 5 people were shot to death in a home in Manchester, a village of 350 people located is 85 north of St. Louis.
So I was at the Rangers/Montreal game tonight and heading up to our seats were two Montreal fans in front of us. They were wondering what the heck was going on with all the escalators and where on earth they were going. I explained to them that the arena floor is actually on the fifth floor of the building itself (meaning when you're watching a Ranger or Knick game on TV or whatever, that's being played 5 stories above the street), that the lower concourse is on the sixth floor, and that the upper concourse, brand new for this season, is now on the 8th story of the building. The first four are the theater (where the NFL draft used to be held as well as countless other plays/concerts/etc.) so to get up to your seats you need to ascend all those escalator banks. They were in awe of that.
So what non-obvious little fun facts do other arenas & stadiums have that aren't possibly well known?
