If you truly dont know what youve got till its gone, will Florida Marlins fans, basking in the air conditioning of the teams new stadium, suddenly realize how good they had it at Sun Life Stadium? Seated behind home plate, staring out at downtown Miami, will they suddenly yearn for an expansive and unparalleled view of a sea of empty orange chairs? Will they miss the ability to walk into any section undisturbed, pick any seat, and stretch out as if they were at home on the couch? Well, the answer to that last one is probably yes, actually. But otherwise, it will be good riddance to a bad baseball stadium when the Marlins take on the Washington Nationals in their penultimate game of the season, in a matchup that just might feature the Nats phenom pitcher Stephen Strasburg. But the best news of all is were not even funding the new stadium! Oh, wait. Pay your respects Tuesday night at 7:10 at Sun Life Stadium.
