Target Field

Recommended Posts

Yes, I received an e-mail from the Twins... 25 year commitment from Target for the naming rights. They will also work together on Marketing opportunities throughout the year.

Well, there is already a Target Center and they are probably saving Target Stadium for the new home of the Vikings so there probably aren't many options left besides Target Field or Target Field of Dreams that they could use for their Marketing Campaign.

I was surprised they didn't name it Carl and Eloise Pohlad Stadium but I suppose the Pohlad family wanted the naming right's fees vs it being named after Carl and Eloise Pohlad.

Slapping corporate sponsor names on ballparks and stadia has always made me ill. Oh, I know the reasons, but just look at how the turnover in names causes a lack of identity. Astros Field becomes Enron Field becomes Minute Maid Park? Jacobs Field becomes Progressive Field? (with the tackiest of signage simply bolted over the top of the old 'Jacobs' lettering...) C'mon: the San Antonio Spurs play in "SBC Center" and the San Francisco Giants play in "SBC Park"?? THEY'RE NOT EVEN IN THE SAME STATE. Oh, fans like the insider nicknames ('X' or 'Cell'...) but then that company goes belly-up or their scandalous business practices are exposed and we change names again. (I see the Jets and Giants are cozying up to Allianz Insurance and their $30 million, ignoring that company's ties to Nazi Germany... They could have just as well picked 'Taliban Field' or 'Bin Laden Stadium.')

Sheer lunacy. Even though nearly 100 professional teams already play in places that have sold their souls to corporate naming rights (source: ESPN Sports Business web page) and even though I do understand that maybe it will get us that RH power-hitting 3B and a middle reliever or two, I still don't have to like it.

It will be during April baseball. They dropped the ball not putting a retractable roof on it.

So should they go with Muskie Stadium or maybe Walleye Park?

It is Minnesota!

Windy

Only if they name the chi sox stadium, Rock Bass Park or Carp Fillet Field.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
