There’s an interesting take on the whole soccer stadium issue over at The Baltimore Sun.
They make the argument that if Governor O’Malley can seek eminent domain (and in the process spend tens of millions) of to save a dying industry (horse racing), what’s the problem with spending a couple hundred thousand to explore the potential economic benefits of MLS soccer? It’s a great question, but unfortunately we’ll never know, at least not for Prince George’s County.
As we blogged about yesterday, it’s time to move on and focus on another Maryland location for our beloved United.
House Bill 1282 will be voted on tomorrow, Monday March 30th, at 11am! Start calling the House Appropriations Committee and tell them you support the bill and United in Prince George’s County! Click here for the list of who to call.
We were so close to taking the opener in LA, but at least we got outta there with the tie and a point. There’s another chance for a W this Saturday when we take on the Chicago Fire at RFK.
When you go to the game on Saturday, take a look around. As much as we all love RFK, it really is beginning to show it’s age. You all have done an amazing job so far, but we need to continue our efforts to let our elected officials know that we support a new stadium in Prince George’s County.
Big news. As you know, there is a hearing next Tuesday, St. Patrick’s Day, on HB 1282, the legislation that would enable United to build their new soccer stadium in Maryland. We need to show our support of this bill, so we are hosting a huge rally in the backyard of our state lawmakers. We want them to hear our collective voice and we want you to join us. The rally will be at noon at Annapolis City Dock, which is the harbor front park at the end of the boardwalk in downtown, Annapolis. See map below.
