Guerrier had tossed a ball to a fan wearing a Twins jersey, who dropped it. If you're going to wear the uniform, he was saying, you gotta make the play. The ball ultimately went to a fan wearing a Randy Moss jersey, and everybody laughed.

Not sure what those supports are for -- probably stadia.
A great view from the balcony outside the Metropolitan Club
Yes, TC is smiling.
Another deck to come...
Here's where the plaza will empty out around that skyway emergency exit tower at the corner of Second Avenue and Seventh Street.
One thing that the design disguises nicely is that the Pro Shop (and other key components) are actually built over lanes of freeway. That can clearly be seen here.

Peering through Gate 29 -- lots to see
Trees also have sprouted near the topiaries
The glare problem.

The main ticketing area beneath the restaurant.
Clemson Memorial Stadium
This is the revised version of the center field pavilion (without the restaurant). It looks like there are no seats, just some ledges for people to sit on. It reminds me of the seating on the "bridge" which sticks out of the new Guthrie Theater. Anything which lands in the trees will presumably be a home run, so the "411" sign is apparently just for fun.

I don't exactly know what this is. A first-aid station? Concession office?
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)
I see an opportunity in this view for an Abbey Road-style promotional photo! Mauer, Morneau, Nathan and Cuddyer walking toward the ballpark. The only question: which one takes off his cleats?
Building the canopy is a spectacular sight.
Go get 'em, boys!

Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade. On my way there today I passed the WCCO building and remembered how the Twins schedule used to be painted in giant form on the side of that building (which is no longer visible). Wouldn't that be a great thing to resurrect on the side of that ramp? A giant Twins schedule. I always thought that was cool.
In March, we were still only imagining baseball through those windows.

This is a closer look at the steel work.
