I've continued holding to my petulant decision to ignore all stories on the battles over the financing of the new Nationals stadium
, but alas, sometimes rash actions have their consequences, such as my missing this little tidbit at the end of today's Post
story, "Cropp Still Hopeful of Private Financing
": "And Major League Baseball agreed to drop a requirement that the city pay significant damages if the opening of the stadium, scheduled for March 2008, is delayed by a year or two." I sure wish someone had taken me up on my $1 bet as to whether the stadium will debut on schedule! In other end-of-article tidbits, a Washington Times piece
on the National Building Museum gala honoring Forest City Enterprises
mentions that HOK Sport
expects to debut the design of the new stadium in August.
