Opening Arguments

A little slow in Evansville

They don't seem too concerned about the souring economy in Evansville:

An advisory board has recommended construction of a new 11,000-seat downtown arena to replace the city's 52-year-old Roberts Stadium.

Work on the project, estimated to cost between $117 million and $127 million, could begin by next summer and be completed by the summer of 2011, said Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel, who still needs final approval by the City Council.

Holy cow -- for 52 years that stadium has been used! Isn't that, like, 37 years too many? Heck, they should be on their third stadium by now.
