Well - this never gets old

Well - this never gets old.  Oh, wait, yes it does.  Soccer was played on our baseball field at Frontier Field again last night, and it was a mess.

Rochester has soccer teams.  We love our soccer teams - a lot.  We love them so much, we built a dedicated soccer stadium.  It's a good thing we did, because until 2005 our Rhinos played at Frontier Field, which is supposed to be a dedicated baseball stadium.  Soccer games on baseball fields suck.  Soccer is hard to play on an irregular shape field, and soccer tears up the baseball sod in ways that the crews are unable to deal with very well.

Someone tweeted this pic from the game


That's messed up.  Everyone: Stop messing up baseball fields!  

The Rochester soccer stadium was used for a concert, so this WNY Flash game had to be moved.  Of course women's soccer was lower on the pecking order....

Do you think a concert could have been held at Frontier Field?  I do.
