A sharp-eyed reader caught me trying to make the best of a bad situation with my SP-570UZ on Sunday afternoon
Oh no! Beach ball! But click to enlarge so you can see the wide range of expressions on people's faces. (Photo by Jared Wieseler)
The Pohlads were loose. A-Rod looked, um, you decide.
That's Fifth Street (and a tattooed arm) in the foreground.
Perhaps these very bold, Hitchcockian birds picking at left-over popcorn and peanuts were portents of what was to come.
We took refuge for a time in the Twins Pub where you can drink a beer (or just hang out) and listen to some ballpark tunes. The organ is decorated with a TC (of course) and what looked like drawings which Sue has received from kids.
In addition to the Pro Shop facade, you can see more gravel being laid before the final plaza surface is poured.
The rendering which excited a fan base! (Inset is an enlargement of the pictured neon sculpture.)
That warning sign doesn't mention anything about the potential for bludgeoning or limb removal by the revolving doors...

The view from the corner of Ford Centre. (Feel free to tie up your boats here.)
A beautiful, glowing sunset after the rain.
These stairs will meet the skyway.
Row indicators are spray-painted with stencils over rust and peeling paint.
Signature elements. (And they wonder why we think the real trees look so small...)
This is the Carew gate covered in plastic.

This looks south and shows how the Northstar tracks are sheltered by the promenade above. This is the side which faces the HERC plant.
This is the Suite Level. There are multiple suites between each pillar, and there will be seating on the area in front of the suites which currently looks like it could be a walkway.
This would have been the HERC side, though it's unclear just how far over the plant the retracted roof would have gone. My fear was always that they would have to shorten the track and more of the roof would have stayed over the ballpark. The only good retractable roof is one which disappears when not in use. I don't think they could have realistically created such a thing.
