You know I never thought of that. That seems like that would be a really good way to incorporate advertising.

A lot of parks already do that. Except with blue walls, not neon green.

Really? I must have never noticed it aside from the blue screens parks have behind home plate. I mean like, say Stanton hits a bomb, they could theoretically put a huge McDonalds ad right where the ball goes out of the park, or do some cool effect as he circles the bases. just a thought

Outfield walls, the backstop, scoreboards, video screens, any fat surface really. There are already ads all over the place. Local ads are physically in the stadiums but for TV broadcasts they superimpose different ones on top of them.

How is that racist? Different races, ethnic groups, etc have different preferences in general. Racial equality doesn't mean every race must be exactly the same in every aspect. It means we're all worth the same and we should be able to celebrate all of our unique differences.

I live in Miami. Go to Miami Beach and everything looks like that. It's just the way it is.
Dominate is a verb. Dominant is an adjective.
