MY TAKE ON THE PARK

OLYMPIC STADIUM - FROM THE 1st BASE SIDE

WHAT THE HECK IS THIS PLACE?? THEY PLAY BASEBALL IN SPACESHIPS IN CANADA, OR JUST 21ST CENTURY VESSELS.

THERE ISN'T MUCH TO RAVE ABOUT AS FAR AS BALLPARKS GO, HOWEVER, THEY REALLY SEEM TO TRY. AFTER MY FIRST VISIT I'D PROBABLY RATE THIS PARK LAST BUT, AFTER A RECENT TRIP IT SCORED A FEW POINTS FOR ME. IT'S JUST A SHAME THAT PRESENTLY THEY HAVE NO TELEVSION CONTRACT AND NO ENGLISH RADIO STATION. ALL THIS IN A CITY THAT DOESN'T START TO WATCH BASEBALL UNTIL LATE JUNE AND ABANDONS BASEBALL IN MID SEPTEMBER. BUT, WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO ROOT FOR?? A TEAM THAT HAS PLAYER TURNOVER LIKE A MINOR LEAGUE FRANCHISE.

Olympic Stadium from the RF corner

SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE DONE WHEN IN THE MONTREAL AREA IS LISTEN TO A BALLGAME IN FRENCH ON THE RADIO, YOU'LL BE SURPRISED HOW YOU CAN FOLLOW IT. WHAT MONTREAL DOES DO VERY WELL IS COMBINE THE TWO LANGUAGES. AS INTRUSIVE AS ONE WOULD THINK IT WOULD BE, IT REALLY WORKS IN MONTREAL.

OF THE 27 PARKS I'VE VISITED I RATE OLYMPIC STADIUM 25TH, BEHIND THREE RIVERS AND AHEAD OF TROPICANA. THE PLACE GETS POINTS FOR TRYING, HAVING DECENT FOOD, GREAT BEER, AND THE CHEAPEST PRICES IN ALL OF BASEBALL.
