"Large enough to accommodate simultaneous baseball, football, volleyball, softball and basketball games, the dome will act as the centerpiece of a complex that includes 50,000-square feet of office space, a nonprofit center, medical services, restaurants, a 220-room hotel, a theater, zip lines and a climbing wall."

Looks like it went down in defeat and fingers quick to point out blame which ironically to me of all things is the fire district. Why not throw in the school district while they are at it. My take is the too many give aways and freebies was even too much for Chesterfield. But you have to give one PD Commentator credit for pitching the city.

Now if only a certain baseball manager could get his team to win again. Painful the last couple of weeks tol look at the box scores from afar. Certainly can feel for the Cards fans up close.
