The Fish have arrived!
We literally checked out the new fishbowl in Miami today. Make it very clear this is now the Miami Marlins not the Florida Marlins. Also more importantly we have green grass and today they put the fish in the tank! Yes little sun fish, tropical fish, swimming around behind homeplate. Pretty cool.
They really did a great job of capturing the local culture’s flair for bright color schemes throughout the ballpark. And as another touch, they actually planted some ficus trees in center field. I would like to think (personally speaking) this was a gesture of homage towards the old municipal stadium in West Palm Beach that also had ficus trees in center field for 36 years….. considering big chunk of the Marlins staff are former Expo employees. But really, its more likely because its the fastest growing tree. shrub in south Florida. And its green!
