“It’s hard being a sports fan these days.”
“Stadium Status” is a documentary which examines the rush of new sports stadiums in NYC as the latest example of an obscene national trend. New stadiums are built every year and the private businesses that own them benefit from huge sums of public money for their creation. Are we getting our money’s worth?
I keep telling folks that the new stadium being built for the Nets (the Nets of all teams) is going to lead to the utter dissolution of Brooklyn, but people just assume I’m speaking poppycock. Give it a few years, and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
