TCF Bank Stadium (click to enlarge)
The dessert carts came out earlier, and looked even better than last year.
From the roof of the Minnekahda building (courtesy Bruce Lambrecht).
The Fun Zone/Rescue Area in Oakland during the second inning
These stairs will meet the skyway.
A view from up (and in) the street.
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.
Ballark Authority members listen to the LEED introduction
Big board, as viewed from section 327, row 9.
Target HQ main entrance. Ballpark resemblance? (Inset.)
Here's a first view of the surprisingly spacious walkway on Fifth between the ballpark and the LRT platform.
A view straight on of the Pro Shop area and ticket windows (just barely visible). The piers you see beneath the plaza are already almost completed (see final photo).
Viewed from another angle, you can see that the bullpens now sit beneath the upper deck outfield seating.
Not from Moose's tour, but it's an image you need to see. (Click to enlarge greatly.)
Dome, what have you taken from us?
I realized I've never shown how the walkway over Seventh Street meets the A ramp
A little more imaginative is the circulation building for Northstar.
Replays on the out-of-town scoreboard!
Mussina's first pitch. (Playing 3rd: Not A-Rod)
Reasonable (if not overly generous) leg room
This is a closer look at the steel work.
This is the HERC Premonade with railroad tracks snaking beneath. (I think this should be named the Halsey Hall Premonade. Seriously.)

I could gaze at this streetscape all day. It isn't perfect, but as a model for Minneapolis, I love it. (Except the Biff, of course. Click to enlarge.)
Scoreboard installation in progress
Nicely-cushioned seats, lots of room, great sightlines
Staircase entrance. You cannot miss them.
We'll be packed into the first five rows of section 136. Hey, Wilson! I'm bringing my glove!
Integrating the administration building was really a great idea. Actually, there will be more things inside than just offices, but that will probably be some sweet space.
