Marlins New Stadium: Great for South Florida

I was lucky enough to attend opening night for the 2012 MLB season at Marlins Park, the new Miami Marlins stadium. This stadium is well done, modern, has a lot of amenities. Not sure if I'm a fan of the art deco highlights or the flare of the stadium, but it's great to have real baseball park in South Florida. After attending enough Miami Heat games in the area I was dreading the mess that occurs when Miami drivers all attend the same function, in cars. Compared to leaving a Heat game, which normally takes about 45 minutes to get onto I-95, I was able to get onto the highway in 20 minutes. 

Even though I wanted my team to win, by inning 7 I was silently rooting to see a no hitter against them; however, this was stopped by Jose Reyes.

At the end of the night, I realized I had a great time. I certainly will come back, but the drive and parking associated with going will make me think twice.
