As someone said in September, the goal for Ottawa Stadium is to get a stable tenant. The sport may be named later, baseball or soccer.
The aim is to keep a stadium out on Coventry Rd., so baseball or soccer, is not such a big deal as far as keeping it from becoming condominiums is concerned. In other words, hearing about Neil Malhotra's intentions to put soccer and be willing to share with a baseball team. It is good news there is interest being expressed by someone who is legitimate. In other words, someone who is does not call .
It is also evidence the commenters are pretty smart, since they cannily anticipated someone would show interest in putting soccer there three months ago. (Of course, there's no parking.)
As for the guy whose initials as the same those for Douche Bag, please. That pathetic little loser (take it away, David Bowie in Extras) is the greatest time-waster since Tetris. Last week he wanted a women's professional baseball team. Next week it will be a team in some other podunk circuit such as the Golden Baseball League, which operates entirely in Western Canada and U.S. and whose teams run on a shoestring, making travel to Ottawa unrealistic. Seriously, sir, you have not been honest with us and worse, you're wasting the time of good people. Any credibility you might have accidentally had is only because of a local media corps that is too time-pressed to do some digging. Go away, and let someone who packs the essential gear between the ears try to make a go out of this. You had your moment, you insult-to-the-word-pitiful glory hog.
