Jay-Z and Alicia Keys will still be performing at this year’s Yankee’s World Series, but it will not be for tonight’s opening game. Previously scheduled for this evening, Jay-Z and Alicia will be performing tomorrow night because of NY’s current weather conditions. Check out an excerpt from the press release below:

“The World Series performance featuring Jay-Z and Alicia Keys has been rescheduled to take place in Thursday’s pre-game ceremonies, which airs on FOX starting at 7:30 p.m. Eastern.
The performance was changed due to the forecast for inclement weather for Wednesday, October 28. Staging for the performance could adversely impact the field if it is wet, creating damaged and unsafe playing conditions.”

Be sure to tune in tomorrow night to see them perform the new NY anthem, “Empire State of Mind”! Roc4Life!!

L.A. is Building a Football Stadium

L.A. is Building a Football Stadium

Written by B-Dub, Friday October 23 2009

The “Governator”, Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed an environmental exemption bill that will allow the construction of a 75,000-seat stadium in Industry, California.  The developers are hoping to lure an NFL franchise back to the Los Angeles area with this project and Industry is only 15 miles east of Los Angeles.
The bill nullifies a lawsuit filed by residents in nearby Walnut, CA over the project’s environmental impact.  Schwarzenegger called the lawsuit frivolous.
The developer for this project, Majestic Realty Co., developed the Staples Center, the downtown Los Angeles home of the NBA’s Lakers and Clippers and the NHL’s Kings.  The proposed $800 million venue includes not only the stadium, but also an orthopedic hospital, movie theater and other shops to be built during a later phase of development.  I believe that means that they plan to do more once the economy comes out of the tank.
Majestic CEO Ed Roski has vowed to build the stadium without any public support beyond the $150 million bond measure by Industry to pay for infrastructure improvements, which the developers plan to repay through ticket sales and parking fees.  That’s a noble sentiment in these tough economic times, but I’ll believe that if and when this actually happens without a taxpayer subsidy, like every other stadium project.
The state legislators approved this plan amid lobbying (bribing?) by Majestic and labor union officials, who argued that the venue’s construction and operation would bring jobs to the region, which is suffering from high unemployment like most of he country.  I don’t really believe their claim that the stadium would create over 18,000 jobs though.  Yes, the construction project will create jobs, but there are only 10 home games in a football season, so how much income will the stadium jobs really generate?
Then there is the question of exactly what team would relocate to L.A..  Majestic has targeted seven teams to approach after the Super Bowl in February about moving to L.A.: the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers.  The firm has said that all of those teams are in stadiums that are either too small or can’t be updated with luxury box seats or other revenue sources an NFL club wants to make even more money.
Look, no NFL owner is going hungry, but some are doing much better than others.  The NFL shares all of its revenue streams equally.  It’s a wonderfully little Socialist organization that would make Obama proud.  The problem is that owners like Daniel Snyder in Washington, Jerry Jones in Dallas and Jeffrey Lurie in Philadelphia don’t like sharing all of the revenue, generated from their nice new stadiums, with the teams that don’t have shiny new taxpayer paid for, cash-cow stadiums.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league wants to see a team back in the Los Angeles area under circumstances that make sense for the league and the community hosting a team, but declined to specify what those circumstances are.  Let me fill in the blanks there for you.  The NFL desperately wants a team back in L.A. because they will then be able to get more money from their next TV contract if it includes the 2nd largest market in America.  It’s greed, pure and simple.  You didn’t think the NFL gave a crap about the fans did you?
So now the question is, which team.  I really don’t think either the San Diego Chargers or San Francisco 49ers are moving.  Both of those teams may want to move, but if the idea is to get a team in the L.A. market, just moving one that is already in California wouldn’t provide enough bang for the buck for the TV networks or the NFL.  I don’t see the Buffalo Bills moving to L.A. either.  Why?  It might be a stretch, but NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was born near Buffalo and I have a feeling that if Buffalo moves anywhere it will be north of the border.  The NFL is just dying to expand American football into Canada and possibly even other countries.  That’s a terrible idea for another article.

The Oakland Raiders?  Oh hell, Al Davis would move to the moon if he could make a few bucks, so that’s always a possibility.  The Raiders moving to L.A.that is, not the moon.  The Minnesota Vikings are intriguing simply because they are mentioned every time any city is looking for an NFL team.  Plus the Vikings owner seems more than willing to move the team.

I have never heard of the possibility of the Jaguars moving out of Jacksonville before, but it doesn’t surprise me.  All of the expansion teams in every sport seem to have a total lack of fan support in the state of Florida.  The baseball teams there have absolutely no fanbase at all.  It’s a joke.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a decent fanbase and the Miami Dolphins have a solid fanbase because they’ve won and have been there forever.  But the fans in Florida seem more interested in college football (Florida, Florida State and Miami) than pro football.  The Jaguars play in a stadium where they can’t find a corporate sponsor after the naming rights for Alltel ran out in 2006.  All of the team’s games are expected to be blacked out during the 2009 season.  Owner Wayne Weaver is said to be trying to sell the team because he’s 72 and his children have no interest in running the team.  And Jacksonville is the 2nd smallest TV market in the NFL, behind only Green Bay.  I can easily see this team moving.

But if L.A. has to get a team, I hope it gets the St. Louis Rams.  It would only be right since St. Louis stole the Rams from Los Angeles in the first place.  The Rams are currently for sale and wouldn’t it be attractive for a prospective buyer to be able to move the team into a brand new stadium in the 2nd largest TV market?  This one actually has the best chance of happening in my opinion.

Of course, if a team does move to Los Angeles it would only be a matter of time before the fanbase disappears and the team is moved again.  Los Angeles has proven several times in the past that it has terrible fans and they do not deserve an NFL team.  They lost the Rams and the Raiders several times already.  I don’t remember hearing much of an outcry from those “fans”.  I don’t even think there is much of a demand for an NFL team among the dozen of so hard-core football fans in L.A.  If the team doesn’t win immediately the stadium won’t sell out and the games will be blacked out.  Nowthat would be a perfect example of karma kicking the NFL is the ass wouldn’t it?
