So, the faithful are streaming toward the ballpark
as we speak. Although the 55 M cam
showed the upper decks pretty empty with about 90 minutes to go, Channel 9 (already on the air
with its coverage of the mass) gives a better view of the tens of thousands already inside. (48,000 people are expected.) How's everyone faring, either trying to get out of the neighborhood or into it for work? Or is everyone just staying home? And, for those reading this later today who went to the mass, how did your trip go?
In other news, my Ballpark and Beyond column this week
is yet another one about stadium parking, taken mainly from my Monday night post about ANC 6D's muted reaction
to parking and traffic issues (along with the Zoning Commission's approval of having additional lots built in Southwest if landowners want them). I also tossed in a quick roundup of the private cash lots springing up.
