    A clerk at the Hudson County Board of Freeholders has confirmed to me that the board is meeting at this very minute regarding the Metro stadium bond float. The meeting should be over at 5pm. Stay tuned.

    So IF this one passes, the funding for the stadium is 100% final?

    I thought you were going to have that colon checked out?

    Sadly, all it took was the Red Sox winning a title for us to get a stadium. Fricken' figures. :rolleyes:

    Please, Jesus, let our long national nightmare be over.

    Well, big fat thanks to you, Mr. Hudson County Freeholder, if this passes.

    If not, protest rally at your house, tonight, 3am.

    I was thinking something along those lines.....
    Of course the other day my friend gave me 2 choices.....

    1 - USMNT qualifies for WC Germany 2006 and The Boston Curse is broken
    or
    2 - USMNT fails to qualify for WC Germany 2006 and The Boston Curse lives

    :eek:

    I'll chose door #3. USMNT qualifies for WC Germany 2006 and the Boston Curse has been transfered to the Yankees.

    Just got off the phone with the board.

    Me: "Hi, I'm checking on the status of the stadium bond float vote."

    Clerk: (asking someone else) "Did the bond float pass?"

    Clerk: (to me) "Yes, everything that was on the agenda passed."

    Me: "The stadium bond vote passed?"

    Clerk: "Everything passed."

    Now I won't believe it until I see it in the paper, but boys, I think we've found a home. :D

    Combine Mike's post with Yasir Arafat knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door*, and whodya thunk it?

    Were is Oliver Stone when you need the fooker?



    *well, probably not heaven's door, but anyway.

    I'm going out to buy a lottery ticket, a bottle of water and a box of condoms. Cause, if this can happen, surely anything can.**

    Apocalypse smchcapolypse, I'm going to be prepared.

    Great, I know now that I can come back and watch a Metro game some day. Question is, when will the stadium open?

    Re: Stadium Bond Float Vote Going on Right Now- Metro stadium thread

    If true, ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!! Congrats. I am a native New Yorker who ended up in DC in 1993 (yes, I'm a United fan), and I am ecstatic for those in my home away from home. I traveled to the game at Giants Stadium last week, and with all due respect, the place is a pit for soccer. As old and decrepid as RFK may be, the atmosphere in that place for soccer is just so much better. I look forward to United beating up on ........... er I mean up with meeting the Metros again in a brand spanking new stadium. Viva MLS. :)

    We've got stadium bonds in our trousers....

    Best day to be a metro fan, ever.

    Kudos to everyone involved for finally getting this shiznitz done, and to Mr. Fish on the G. Gordon Liddy phone tapping skills. :eek:

    I won't believe it until Nick Sakiewicz has another "It's done" press conference.

    If you really are getting a soccer stadium, congratulations, and I look foward to making a trip up to New York.
