Taking Back the Ballparks - Red Sox Unconstitutional Executive Order Thread

This was not an easy call. While there was some support for conducting a vote, even if it was a mere formality, there was even more backing for simply calling Fenway the winner. Moreover, there was a substantial undercurrent of thought that even having a vote threatened the project itself. It’s not an opinion I share, but given I’m relying on the support of Primates to keep thing going, it’s one I have to take seriously. Thus, I hereby proclaim that Fenway Park is the name of choice for the ballpark played by the Olde Towne Team.

The next team will be announced soon.

Cheesy - but I would just call it The National Park and move on.

This has been the worst vote thread in the history of vote thread, maybe ever.

So not Teddy Ballpark?

A needed decision. When there's a complete and utter no-brainer of a decision, it's often best to make it and move on. I suspect we're going to have one or two more like this.
