Most people prefer to watch live sporting events over sports talk and highlights/replays - it's a slow time of year.

[quote]I agree on the porch. It was modeled after a lot of old parks. I love that feel. [/quote]
Other new parks were able to go retro without obstructed views.
Also, the location and heat are minuses - retractable roofs just make sense in such climates for summer sports......
