Mayor Tomas Regalado Zings the Marlins On Rumors of Castro's Death

Remember how the City of Miami made some controversial plans to allow protesters to gather in the Orange Bowl when Fidel Castro dies? Yeah, well, the city has never updated those plans even though the Orange Bowl was demolished and replaced with the Marlins Stadium.

Don't expect the city to make new plans involving that stadium, however. "I don't think the Marlins would want that," Mayor Tomas Regalado told The Miami Herald. "Knowing them, they would charge to protest."

Oh, zing!

Though, it would be nice to see actual crowds in that taxpayer-funded multimillion dollar stadium.

With rumors of Castro's health problems swirling, Regalado says that the city will update plans on how to deal with protesters in the event he finally kicks the bucket.

Of course, the original plans did generate some controversy, as some considered it inappropriate to make plans to celebrate someone's death.
