I went to the new stadium last night to see a Cardinals game. This was my first time at the new stadium, and I very much did not like it. Sure, it was pretty and open and airy and everything. But it just didn’t feel right watching a baseball game there. They showed a couple of clips of the old stadium, and that felt like where baseball was supposed to be, not this new place.
I suppose that the new place will grow on me. I’m going back in a month for another game, and maybe my opinion will improve. But I think that I’ll still come away feeling like I’d be happier at the old stadium, despite all of its faults.
