I don’t know if you have heard the Twins radio commercials, but they all have on common theme. The Metrodome is awful, what a horrible place to play baseball, thank goodness we are moving outside next season. Oh, come watch us in this dump anyways. You know what, Twins? You got your stadium. You don’t need to complain anymore. Instead of making us think that the past 30 or so years were a mistake, how about reflecting on the history of the Metrodome a little bit, especially since it’s the only home many Twins fans (myself included) have ever known.
The Twins won two World Series while in the Dome, thanks in no small part to opponents being unfamiliar with the roof and the turf, as well as the raucus, acoustically enhanced crowds. It was a unique facility that everyone recognized as home for the Twins for the duration of their tenure in the Dome.
Now, I understand if there is a little animosity towards the Dome operators. There has been a little bit of bitter history there over the past few years, in terms of leases and concessions not going to the team, but if that is the reason for the smear campaign towards your own home stadium, I have to say that comes across as childish and generally bad for business. Knock it off.
