Tradition part of magic for CWS, Omaha

College baseball coaches across the country don't have to prepare any long inspirational speeches before the start of each season. They only need to say one word.

Omaha.

Mayors are often sneaky (for lack of a better word) because some people would rather save 1 penny today only to pay 5 dollars more tomorrow.  You know the people who drive 8 miles out of their way each time they fill up their tank just so that they can save 3 cents per gallon.  Many of these peopl...

and without Mr. Harper (if I am correct) it would have ended 2 blocks further east and it would have still been a killer shot by DTO.  

Yeah we really screwed the pooch but hey DTO took another really nice shot and let's celebrate that rather than dilute it with atrocities of the past.

While they city council notes state that the city is going to make them meet the OBD requirements, it appears by the site plan that it is not really case.  I don't see any on street parking which I thought was a big part of the new requirements.   It does appear there will be 5-6 story condo tower...

It appears that the mixed use area is growing by 2 acres.  It now totals 12 acres.  It looks as if they have a lot of work to do still before the city will approve.  It is good to finally see the new OBD requirements in the city council agenda.   http://www.ci.omaha.ne.us/departments/city_counci...

I would think they could always lower 12th street and have it run under the stadium.  I think a street runs under the convention center in Phoenix.  They probably wouldn't do it in this day and age since we are sooooo paranoid of terrorists.  Could be an option.

According to the paper it is to be torn down along with nearly 50 other structures.  In it's present shape it is indeed an eyesore.  Take off the vinyl siding and voila you may just have a nice brick building behind there.  I would think it would make a great bar or restaurant overlooking the new...
