  1. Agree. Disney, the king of "learn-tainment", had to completely scale back the learning that was EPCOT and turn those attractions into something that drew better crowds. I just don't love the idea of the learning theme. Maybe that's a way to get sponsors? Dollywood is an incredible park IMO. But she continues to lean a little more on family attractions versus thrill... which is fine. The video of their new family coaster "Big Bear Mountain" looks *fun* but not "OMG IM GOING TO THROW UP!" Edit: I would add the Wild Eagle is one of the best coasters I have experienced. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFb5wzjAo8w
  2. Asurion Nashville did have direct impacts to the job loss. I still have friends that work there and yesterday was a very crapty day at the company. Asurion expanded quickly with brick and mortar repair business (buying companies) and also a fleet of repair vehicles. Some speculate those rapid growth decisions were not the best. I do believe this is more about the economy/recession than preparing to go public.
  3. Not to get off the MLB topic, although maybe it pertains, but the traffic control from law enforcement could be better coordinated. Flowing the foot and car traffic directly towards Wedgewood is a nightmare. Coming out of lot E I would like to turn left and head to the 100 Oaks area. Spread it out. People walking towards Wedgewood dart out in front of cars and I have seen many come close. I waited 45 minutes just to park once because the cops and those controlling pedestrian traffic into the close lots were not coordinated. In any case, there's no question that the parking situation is a major problem for NSC. I am glad you haven't experienced that. Can you give up your secret parking spot? But I do understand that large events will have "traffic". I have been to so many Preds/Titans games and concerts. I don't mind walking from the MCC to Nissan for games... But the NSC situation is just different.
  4. Have to disagree. I have season tickets at Geodis and it's a nightmare. I have had tickets in lot E and getting in and out is maddness. The first game, my friend sat in the race track parking lot for hours waiting to get out. Now, obviously one can park far away and walk a long distance and maybe traffic is "better". But if you park close, it's a cluster to get out.
  5. I took this shot when I was downtown last week. Gives you an idea what’s available down there.
  6. Took the drone out last night (finally). Beautiful night in Nashville. Even got the Batman building looking in the mirror
  7. I saw where Oakland's attendance the other night was a little over 3,000. Wow. Isn't that one of the teams that want to relocate? If a team re-locates, could their current ownership possibly work with this ownership to bring baseball to Nashville? That would be enough monetary resources, right?
  8. 1000% agree. And what's nice for photogs is the setting sun to the west illuminates the glass towers in a beautiful way. The "golden hour" and "blue hour" is fantastic from this viewpoint.
  9. Drove by there yesterday... really a huge prescence! That disgusting brown/gray/cream building next to it... will it get any other facial updates? It's horrible.
  10. Anyone think this would kill the FIFA World Cup "hosting" chances? That's a lot of money the city could gain from that event. I would like that new shiny stadium, though.
  11. We had season tickets for a few years for TPACs broadway style shows. I am sad to see that go but, like everyone is saying, a change to the street activation would be huge in that area. Obviously we need a new performance hall. Would we get better shows/talent for Broadway traveling shows if we had a top tier facility? I am not sure how that works.
  12. Tennessee Soccer Club is bringing two USL teams to Nashville. A USL women's team and a men's USL2. Not sure on location specifics. TSC USL
  13. Richard Seigel park in M'boro has around 20 soccer fields. They've been spending a fortune replacing about 10 of them with artificial turf and an indoor soccer arena. They just held a national youth soccer showcase that brought several hundred college recruits and teams from pretty much every state. This will be good for M'boro!
