Doomed to repeat?

Doomed to repeat.

As the Director of Operations for the facility, I attended a number of meetings with Frank, and his lovely wife Jamie, and found them to be earnest, but incompetent. Their ideas were useless, and we had to spend many hours explaining to them why such concepts as selling hot dogs and peanuts in the large concert venue, having the ticket takers working in character and costume (Babe Ruth, Edgar Allen Poe, etc.), buying $50 logo-embossed golf umbrellas for each VIP (2000 of them) for the grand opening in case of rain on Opening Night, etc, were just not practical or viable ideas




WOW!!!

Might as well write off the Dodgers for the next 10 years.
Just another stain on the game of baseball as envisioned by 'Bud'

Doesn't it bother anybody that our favorite game is ruled by a guy named 'Bud' :-?

Frank finally "sold" the building back to the city of Baltimore for one dollar, after years of fruitless attempts to reopen. (It is now the city's children's museum.)

He must have done something right since 1988 to be able to afford a baseball team. But I still don't trust him :-o
