BUILD IT and THEY (MAY) COME!

I had recently commented on what a bad idea I thought it was to try an re-open Six Flags amusement park in New Orleans East. The park was not profitable with a larger pre-Katrina population, so how could it work with a smaller post-Katrina audience?

Today, it was announced a group, Big League Dreams , wants to take over the site. They operate mini-replica stadiums and full sizes courts to play baseball, softball , soccer and basketball , all free to the public! Their revenue comes from charging leagues and tournament groups to play.

This sounds like a great idea!

I think if we (they) build it, they will come!

I think that sounds like a MUCH better use of the land, and provides so much more for the community.
