Stadium Funding: 80%

We've all been waiting for an update on the stadium renovation for a while, and today Mac Engel of the Star-Telegram delivered with this informative article. Among the highlights:

-Funding for the project is at about 80%. The fundraising deadline for the renovation to take place next offseason is June 30.

-The new seating capacity will be just over 40,000, but with the ability to easily increase to 50,000-55,000 should the need arise.

-The north & west sides of the stadium will be redone first, with the 2011 season being played in a partially-completed stage with a temporary capacity of 34,000. The east side is expected to be complete in time for the 2015 season. This is a change from what we've been hearing, which was that the east side renovation would be done almost immediately after the west.

-After the soccer and football facility upgrades, there are long-range plans to possibly double the capacity of Lupton Stadium.

Since we are all just trust-fund PUNKS, according to some among the killerfrogs crowd, I figured I'd post this in hopes that you'd forego your helicopter safari in the Serengeti this summer and help raise that last $20 million or so to make this thing happen.

Are you really asking me to stop wiping my ass with twenties?

Wiping with twenties...where do you live- Haltom City? I have a bidet that shoots liquid gold.

Wiping w/ money? Bidets? thats sooo 20th century. With all these illegal immigrants, I'm paying a cute little Latina about 2 pesos a day to wipe me with moist towelettes, pat me dry with baby powder and give me a nice HJ to top it all off.

We are living in a recession boys. I'm learning to save my money for more important uses like my fire place or to soak up oil on the Louisiana Coast.

You PUNKS need to learn to be more resourceful with your money.
