Super Poke the Marlins’ New StadiumToday is the final vote for the Marlins' stadium. As you're waiting for that, why not click over to Facebook and find out which President or Superhero the proposed park would be:
The most annoying Facebook gizmo in history appeared in December. Worse than Vampire Wars and the gifting of virtual beer, it inveigled users to write 25 Random Things About Me.
Hey, I actually liked the 25 Things About Me meme! The idea of a stadium having a promotional Facebook page, however? Kind of reminds me of when the Fruity Pebbles people had Barney dress up like MC Hammer. Too late, too lame, and mostly just embarrassing.

Number 2 doesn’t seem like a good thing. “I’m not sharing!”

Andy, without getting in to the semantics of the fungibility of the public dollars, technically that comment is accurate. The $$$ referenced are to be spent only on tourist related projects (ie. many critics of the plan were calling for this money to be spent on the convention centre).

I guess I must be on a different Facebook than the writer of the article. Apparently on his version of Facebook, you are forced to read everything that everybody posts. Not sure how it manages that; presumably secret police and toothpicks on your eyelids are involved. On mine, it just shows that someone wrote 25 things, and you can go ahead and ignore it if you’d like. In fact, you have to specifically say that you’d like to read the 25 things by clicking on the note, making it very easy to ignore.

Some one needs a hug, a nap, and a cookie. In that order.
