U2 Pushes Marlins Out of Stadium, People Who Care About Things That Don't Suck Completely Unfazed

During the last week of June something kind of sucky and boring we don't care about at all will happen in Sun Life Stadium, which tends to happen a lot in the Stadium during baseball season. Except this time it's because U2 is playing, forcing the Marlins to play "home" games in Seattle.

U2 and the Marlins used to be pretty cool some time ago, but now are just horribly depressing, money-grabbing shadows of their former selves. U2's last few albums and the Marlins' last few season: Pretty much the same brand of boring mediocrity.

The only difference is that somehow U2 still manages to have passionate fans, while the Marlins only have that one guy in your office who sometimes wears their logo tie to work.

The Marlins were set to host the Seattle Mariners for three games between June 24 and 26, but U2 is set to play in the stadium on June 29. Apparently, they need all that time to set up their stage show. (They don't want any of those unfortunate Spider-Man musical accidents.) So the Marlins will be playing those "home" games in Seattle -- a town, we're told, where they actually support their sports teams.

All twenty-three fans who were really excited to be attending those games are surely pissed.

You should be called Miami Bad Times!Your perception of things definitely needs to become a bit more real...try to keep on taking your daily meds before analyzing things that are 'not so obvious' for the rest of the planet

That's all you have to write about? Your point is what exactly? The whole world makes way for U2 with honor & pleasure!! The Magicians might even do well in a diff environment. You sound like a winging Reporter who needs to get a life!!

Stadiums are among the more foolish of politicians' boondoggles. There are only 81 home baseball games a year and 41 basketball games. How does that sustain a neighborhood economy

McDonalds also sells a lot of burgers yet I won't call the slabs of questionable meat anything but mediocre. I"m sure the burgers were good once too.

Just proves a point that Miamians care about one thing which is themselves. No one goes to see the Marlins play so let's build them a new home! Brilliant - just another reason why I took my American flag and moved to a City that has passion, a bustling downtown, and drivers who actually allow you to merge into traffic. I pray the Manatees will survive the cold - the rest of you can freeze your ARSEs off.

funny how a band whose last album was number 1 in 30 countries when it was released and was certified platinum in 7 countries and Europe you think is mediocre, i guess being a Marlins fan will do that to you

Ask the restaurants and retail in Cleveland if they agree with you.
