The Mind, It Boggles
Update! From the Junky, a remarkably similar take. [Updated 16 August 2005, 8:35AM]
From a QA session on the MetroStarts new stadium at MetroEmpire:
KRD: The announced stadium capacity circa-twenty thousand is smaller then any previous projections had announced. Why the change? Is this an indicator that AEG might be content with the MetroStars being a Jersey based team and are serious about their commitment to a New York franchise?
NS: It has always been our vision to launch a second team in this area. Our studies of the market size and their attendance habits indicate that a market exists for two teams. Once we have the right situation and the timing is right we will pursue that opportunity.
A second team? I wasn't aware that they had a first. The Metro...wha? Never heard of them...
