    @Matherly87 : Are you suggesting we all lick Scott Stricklin?

    Very good JC. I was wondering if anyone would get my post. So how many licks would it take to get to the center of an AD?
    Actually I was opining at all the blue birds I keep seeing form my buddy @gatorjjh since I'm not a twitter nerd. Thus, the world may never know.

    Since I also don't do twitter, depending instead on @gatorjjh for my twitter news, and since I caught your reference immediately, I conclude ..... we're both very old.

    I think that I might have to break down and get onto Twitter as it seems like it is the social media equivalent of CSPAN,

    Not as much seating in the upper deck than I thought. Glad to see plenty of ceiling fans in the lower seats.

    There's not enough shade imo.

    I was thinking the same but if you consider the sun at 4 PM will be setting behind the third baseline and home plate, most of the fans should be in shade by then. Those 1PM Sunday games in May will still be roasting but I bet most fans find their way back into the shade or right down by the field.

    This would be the view from the setting sun.

    Forgive me if this has been asked, but will the name transfer from old ballpark? The flyover has all the branding as "Florida Ballpark."

    If football/basketball is any indication, the name will be stretched out to an absurd max.

    I assume the "Florida Ballpark" title is just a placeholder for simulation purposes.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see the UAA sell naming rights to the park.

    I think our AD was bouncing around the idea of calling it Johnny Cakes Field and using some strange one-eyed green mascot.

    It's a beautiful thing to look at the webcam right before 6PM and see all the shade already covering 90% of the seating.
