A's cancel Fremont stadium presentations

In case you were thinking the Oakland A's stadium plans in Fremont hadn't completely hit a wall, here's a wall for you: Club owner Lew Wolff announced today that he was "indefinitely postponing" a stadium presentations to the Fremont Chamber of Commerce and Fremont City Council that had been scheduled for next Tuesday. How come? "I've postponed the meetings because we had so many people lined up to yell at us," said Wolff, adding: "We're also really busy with spring training."

You might wonder whether Wolff only just noticed that spring training happens in the spring, but no matter - today apparently was Lame Excuses Day. I eagerly await Rick Wagoner's explanation that the dog ate his first $13 billion.


just a matter of time now before lew packs it up with his tail between his legs and "moves" back up the interstate to the cozy confines of the oakland coliseum.
