2. Great article
There's something about the old parks that can never be replaced. I went to see the Tigers play Boston in Fenway a couple years ago and just being in that park where all that history has taken place is an almost spiritual experience. My immeidate reaction was, man I miss the old Tiger Stadium.

Nothing against the new park. It's nice. I like Comerica and I've had some wonderful experiences there this summer. It doesn't feel as much like a brand new strip mall as it used to in previous seasons. There's finally some magic there. That's because the fans are back and it's the community that really creates the social experience, not the building. I remember being in Catholic school and being taught that the church wasn't a building, and it was the people who made up the church. It's kinda like that.

I'm inclined to agree with Willie Horton. Rather than let the stadium just fall into disrepair and be something that makes us feel sad to see when we drive by it on the freeway, as odd as this sounds, we should tear it down out of respect for what it was. I'd rather see it remembered as a living vibrant stadium, than become an empty building that's a dilapidated eyesore.
