Is this your stadium, Mr. Evans?

Councilmember Evans not only wants baseball, but he wants it his way. Do we really need to see the Capitol when we look up from our beers? Why not look across the Anacosita River, or do we want to figuratively and litterally continue to turn our backs on that side of the City?

"The resolution of the sight-line debate could affect the design of the stadium, which continues to be the subject of heated discussions. Although the mayor and sports commission have pushed for a modern-looking design that incorporates glass and steel, Evans has pushed hard for the red-brick throwback look popularized by Camden Yards. Lew, the sports commission chief, said he has instructed the architects to develop several options." As Stadium Clock Ticks, D.C. Officials Bicker
