    For those who did not go to this week's games, I thought I'd resurrect this great old thread to include a pic of the new coverings they just added to the area behind the bleachers. I think they look great, and hope they do the same thing to the main facade area of the grandstand.

    (I haven't read the recent game threads, so don't know if someone had already posted on this before...if so, sorry for the dups.)

    Someone was smart enough to secure them properly this time.

    Here is to hoping they don't last long.

    It would be some nice if baseball events in the next couple of weeks make these stale.

    I'm happy to notice they replaced a couple of the burnt/broken lights under the awning down the first base line. Any idea if and when they will hang the illuminated Russo Park sign on the far lefthand side of the grandstand brick (looking at the suites from the field)? All the renderings of the stadium had it. Once up it will really compliment the park at night.

    Watching a game on tv at night shows a direct view of what looks like a popcorn stand with people walking everywhere directly behind home plate. That would seem to be very distracting to players and looks bad on tv. During a day game shadows block it out, but at night it is all lit up and just doesn't look good on tv. Putting up a screen of some kind to block some of this activity would appear to be needed. JMO.

    I love how you can see into the concessions and what not. It also creates a homefield advantage.

    But would that block the fans ability to see action on the field while getting concessions or going to the bathroom?

    I'm pretty sure the stadium was designed that way to allow folks at the concession stands to be able to watch the game action while purchasing refreshments. I could care less what it looks like on TV. The new stadium was built to accommodate the fans that actually purchase tickets and attend the games in person to cheer on the Cajuns. I realize that not all fans can attend all of the games and some live out of town and/or out of State but by making the park fan friendly, it really helps those in attendance.

    The stadium was specifically designed to allow fans to watch from the concourse while getting concessions, etc.
